This summer’s biggest book bestsellers and their ripple effects have taken readers through many twists and turns.
The biggest book news so far has proven to be quite Sherlockian—Robert Galbraith is actually a pen name used for J.K. Rowling’s new book, The Cuckoo’s Calling, which has recently shot to #1 on the U.S best-seller’s list.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg sparked a (literal) movement, beckoning women to Lean In with their careers, and author Cassandra Clare’s August film adaption of the wildly popular YA series, The Mortal Instruments, will have to tide young and old fans alike until the sixth book, City of Heavenly Fire, is released in 2014.
That being said, there are plenty of good reads to celebrate with onBook Lover’s Day, August 9.
And if you’re looking to catch up on other reads, visit Brookline Public Library or The Brookline Booksmith to borrow or purchase.
