Here are a few suggestions:
If you are a history buff pick up Jeff Shaara's series on WWII (the second book is even
better than the first) :
Rising Tide (in paperback this is the first book
in the planned trilogy )
Steel Wave (second in the series)
Conn Iggulden has written two great historical novels (series of three are planned) about Genghis Kahn. Fascinating and well written these are well worth the reading time.
Genghis:Birth of An Empire (first in the series)
Genghis: Lords of the Bow
If you prefer a little mystery or a political thriller for your summer pleasure pick up the latest from Brad Thor or James Rollins (and if you don't want to splurge on hard covers buy any of their other books already in paperback). You can't go wrong with these two authors.
For a different kind of thriller, take a look at life behind the Iron Curtain when the government says that crime does not exist, discover how you catch a killer, when you read the book Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith.
The Last Patriot**** Brad Thor
The Last Oracle**** James Rollins
Need a little romance? If you like regencies try anything by Julia Quinn such as her Bridgerton series or Lisa Kleypas' Wallflower series. If you prefer contemporaries you can't go wrong with Debbie Macomber, Catherine Anderson or Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
