Summer is the season that I really like to sit back and relax with a great book. There are few things I love more than grabbing a good book and soaking up some rays with a cool glass of water (or wine). Luckily you can get an AMAZING selection of books and e-books with Cash Back from Ebates. Here are a few that I would strongly recommend:
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender is an odd scifi-esque novel. Bender is a strong, creative writer, and this story is unlike any I have ever read.
The Glass Castle was on the NYTimes Bestseller list for well over a year, and it is no surprise. The gripping, beautiful memoir is one of the most widely adored books I have read. I have given it to family and friends that have all adored it.
While I am skeptical about the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby, despite my adoration for Leonardo DiCaprio, I can’t help but feel an itch to reread this classic.
Some people have told me that they thought Everything is Illuminated is a tad difficult to get into. But dive head first and stick with this hilarious and poignant semi-autobiographical novel. AFTER you read it be sure to check out the movie starring Elijah Wood.
Confession: I am a total history nerd. But you don’t have to be one to enjoy this amazing true story. In the Heart of the Sea is about a whaling ship attacked by a sperm whale off the coast of Nantucket – the true story of the Melville Classic Moby Dick. Nathaniel Philbrick is a truly gifted writer. Be sure to grab this before the movie comes out (rumor has it that Thor himself will be staring).
