Handpicked by the Amazon Books editors, these seven reads will keep you busy these summer months.
Euphoria by Lily King
“This historical novel — based on the life of Margaret Mead — is brainy, but sexier and more fun than you might think a book about an anthropologist might be.” — Sara Nelson
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
“Sit back, relax, and let the master storyteller lead the way. There’s not a paranormal element in sight, as King enters the minds of a deranged murderer and the aging ex-cop trying to stop him from killing again.” — Chris Schluep
Good Hunting by Jack Devine
“Meet Jack Devine: A 30-year veteran of the CIA who oversaw Charlie Wilson’s war in Afghanistan, who knew a thing or two about Iran-Contra, and who tangled with some of the agency’s most notorious double-agents. A real-life George Smiley.” — Jon Foro
The Fever: A Novel by Megan Abbott
“A twisty literary thriller about a group of high school girls who become suddenly ill and the psychic havoc it wreaks on their small town.” — Kevin Nguyen
The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove
“In this first book in a new adventure series, history is reimagined and all of the continents belong to different times. Two young explorers set out to save a kidnapped mapmaker, encountering magic and dangers that put their own lives at risk.” — Seira Wilson

“I’ve developed a man-crush on Silva’s brainy, brutal artist/assassin/spy, Gabriel Allon, who in The Heist is on the hunt for a stolen Caravaggio masterpiece.” — Neal Thompson
The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
“What happens when an ugly rumor takes on a life of its own? Multiple narrators expose how far people will go to be liked and how little the truth seems to matter.” — Seira Wilson
