Q & A: Author Sarah Pekkanen’s Summer Book Recommendations

Sarah Pekkanen pictureI find that I read more books in the summertime than any other time of the year. I recently asked one of my favorite authors, Sarah Pekkanen, who is a Montgomery County resident, to share her summer book list.

Sonya: What are you reading right now?

Sarah: “I just picked up Brene Brown‘s THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION after seeing her TED talk and being wowed by her smarts and charm. So far the book is fascinating! And I think the message of being gentler with ourselves is one we all need to hear.”

Sonya: What five books do you recommend for summer reading?

Sarah: “This summer I’m recommending some terrific beach novels: ALL FALL DOWN by Jennifer Weiner, ONE PLUS ONE by JoJo Moyes, which I just reviewed for The Washington Post, AFTER I DO by Taylor Jenkins Reid, THE STAGER by Susan Coll, and FIVE DAYS LEFT by Julie Lawson Timmer.”

Sonya: Do you find that you read more in the summer than other months or no?

Sarah: “Maybe a little bit more, because I always bring along book when I take the kids to the pool and I end up reading instead of going into the water – but I’m rarely without a book in hand during the year’s other seasons!”

You can find out more about author Sarah Pekkanen’s books and short stories on her website. Don’t miss her book tour dates!

Now it’s your turn. What are you reading this summer? Send me an email with your summer book list at sburke@mymcmedia.org.
