What to Read this summer: Possessionista Book Recommendations


It’s been a few months since the last time I did a book roundup, but as the days get longer and we’re spending more time outside, I figured now was a good time to share what I read this winter -and to get some new recommendations of what to read from each of you.

As always, I appreciate all your suggestions, as long as they’re not about vampires, spanking or any of the VC Andrews series. The former because I’m not interested.

And the latter because I’ve already read them all.

    I love the selection series by Keira Cass, it’s in the young adult category but loved all three books and the last in the series is coming out in May of 2015

    1. Dana Weiss

      I LOVED it. It was like Hunger Games meets the Bachelor. Have you tried the Wither series yet?

    If you like dark and twisty you have to read. You by Caroline Kepnes.

    It’s amazing!

      I loved it! I think it was on my last list.

    I love when you post book ideas! đŸ˜€ Thanks for the recs to check out…

    The Hole We’re In – Gabrielle Zavin…we just read for book club and it made for really good discussion. It’s different than her other book though…and a fast read.

    The Snow Child if you haven’t already read it…

    The Ghost Bride…

    The Bone Season and its sequel…if you can tolerate the detailed world building…

    Thank you for posting what to read again.
    The Matchbaker and Learning to Live by Jerrica Knight-Catania are both by a friend from high school. They are fiction, but Learning to Live is based on her experience living in NYC on 9/11.

    The Girl Behind the Door by John Brooks is based on the true story of losing his daughter to suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge. Honestly, there hasn’t been anything quite like it yet. It has received great reviews on Amazon and I’m involved with getting it to the big screen.

    Depending on how many suggestions you get, you could do a future post on what you enjoyed reading the most and why.

    Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is a great read! (As are her other books! What Alice forgot & the husband’s secret)

    Dana, love you. Wish you would give a brief review is each book and what you liked about it. I find your opinions both on point and hilarious. Thanks!

    I have read and loved most of the books on your list. Based on our similar tastes you might also like: “Luckiest girl alive” by Jessica Knoll, “Black-Eyed Susans” by Julia Heaberlin, “Pretty Baby” by Mary Kubica, “Dark Places” by Gillian Flynn.
