Beach, pool, hammock or train commute to work, there is no place you should go this month without a few summer reads in hand (or in bag). Most of us at Bloombees are big bookworms and have a few ideas of books we’ll be (or already are) reading this summer. Check them out!
6 Summer Reads:
On Bowie – Rob Sheffield
In the prologue of his book, Sheffield describes it as “a love letter to everyone who adored [Bowie], because bringing us together is what he was all about.” A book about how one man transformed grief into beauty.
Homegoing – Yaa Gyani
Young writers (especially female writers) are publishing debut novels right and left this year. This 26 year-old writer tells the story of two Ghanian half sisters and the split in their lives even when they live, unknowingly, in the same house.
Chaos Monkeys – Antonio García Martínez
Since Bloombees is a start up it’s no wonder this book would be on our list. After working in several big tech companies in Silicon Valley, García Martínez set out to write about all the incredible, ridiculous, embarrassing, amazing things he did while working there. The result is this book which is a voyeuristic peek into a world we both love and hate.
Harry Potter & The Cursed Child – J. K Rowling
There are several Harry Potter fans among us, which is why J. K Rowling’s newest novel is found on this short but comprehensive list. More magic, wizards and wands. Need we say more?
Siracusa – Delia Ephron
Delia Ephron transports us to the Sicilian coastal town of Siracusa in her novel of the same name. A novel about marriage and friendship with alternating points of view. It’s always nice to escape to Italy, even if you can’t physically go there.
How Not To Be Wrong – Jordan Ellenberg
This last book is on Bill Gates’ summer reading list. It’s about math (what else?). But it’s not just about math, it’s about how math secretly affects our everyday lives – “a series of stories about how a lot of the apparently non-mathematical systems that underpin our daily lives are actually deeply mathematical.” Who said math was boring?
