Summer Reading List
Curated by our neighbor independent bookstore, McNally Jackson, we are excited to offer you our summer reading list! This collection of good reads reflect the neighborhood of Williamsburg and New York City through a variety of different perspectives.
A mix of American & international literature, memoirs, science fiction and mystery novels that is thoughtfully selected by a fellow New Yorker brand. This list focuses on great quality literature, works in translation, and works that divert, unsettle, or recast the expected. They are compulsively readable but light in nature for all to enjoy.
You can find the books in our retail spaces both in our lobby and near Vale Pool. You can also purchase them online. Happy reading, book worms!
The latest Emily Henry – need we say more?
A novel that takes place over a single day, to be read in a single day, and thought about for every day after.
The Throwback Special
An odd and beguiling novel and men and friendship.
Seven murders, seven sins, one seaside hotel. This rediscovered classic will have you laughing all the way to hell.
A woman moves to Hudson, starts working as a transcriptionist for a sex therapist, and falls in love with one of his patients, the titular Big Swiss. We are evangelists for this book, it is simply too good not to share.
A love letter to books and young love.
Read everything you can by Patrick Radden Keefe, but while you're here in New York, read Snakehead.
Consider The Oyster
You'll never eat an oyster without thinking of MFK Fisher again, and you'll be so much better for it.
This is really good! But don't take our word for it: it just won a Pulitzer.
