Since the advent of smartphones and low-cost data, people have forgotten what it is to read good novels. Well, it’s never too late. You can relax in your favorite chair or lie on the beach with a plate of your favorite cookies and lemonades and enjoy a good read.
Here is my take on the 5 best novels to make your summer great:
- What luck by Will Leitch
This is the first novel by Will Leitch who is a sports writer. This is a detective story starring an unlikely detective – Daniel, 26 in a wheelchair with spinal muscular atrophy. What luck spends time exploring how this condition, which makes every move dangerous, feels from the inside out alongside witty observations about the culture and life of college football in Georgia on social media until the narrative engine is triggered. A Chinese graduate student is missing and Daniel is the only witness.
- The other black girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris
Nella, editorial assistant and only black employee at Wagner Books, first sympathizes with her new colleague, Hazel – The other black girl until she starts to suspect something is wrong when Hazel catapults herself into office favorite status and a series of anonymous menacing notes continue to appear on Nella’s desk. The book keeps the reader in suspense. What is the source of Hazel’s easy popularity? Who wants Nella out and why? The unspoken camaraderie black colleagues might share is dissected, twisted, and overturned in this nail rodent.
- The delay effect by Christophe Cox
Many of us spend time worrying about work and creeping deadlines. With the right perspective, however, deadlines can actually be a source of calm that lets you take a break with peace of mind. Christopher Cox met with a group of high-profile and high-performing people and organizations, such as Chief Jean-Georges Vongerichten or the Air Force Hurricane Response Team, to see how the deadlines dictated what they did. When you have a healthy relationship with tough times, the book says, you can do a great job and make the most of the vacation.
- Tragic magic by Wesley Brown
Tragic magic follows Melvin Mouth Ellington, a black man in his twenties, and named stake of Duke, on his first day in prison after two years spent for refusing to fight in Vietnam. While Melvin’s first day out and back in New York City is seemingly full of reunions, flirtations, and brawls, he also constantly returns to scenes and decisions he made before and during his time. prison sentence. Tragic magic is an often grim take on the gender norms, violence and confusion of radical movements, but the whole novel so overtly revel in the music of language that each page retains its vibrancy. He also loves literal music.

The author of Ten seconds is back with a new novel. It follows Ramada, the son of a Syrian refugee and an African-American woman whose family has lived in New Orleans for nine generations. Ramadan’s father left him and his mother before he was born, and at the age of 12 he decides to reunite with his father, a journey that will take him from the Mississippi River to Aleppo. Stories of sons looking for fathers are quite common, but Edwards is an extremely rare writer. Ramadam ramsey is a clever and moving family novel that will transport you across the world, even though borders are still closed for many of us.
