When anyone at WBEZ needs book recommendations, they go to the station’s resident bookworm, Nerdette host Greta Johnsen.
So what makes a book a good one for summer reading?
“I think it’s something you can get completely lost in,” Johnsen told Morning Shift host Jenn White. “I love a book that just completely sucks you in from the first page.”
Here are Johnsen’s picks for your summer reading pleasure.
Contemporary Romantic Fiction
Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey
Searching for Sylvie Lee by Jean Kwok
More Than Enough: Claiming Space For Who You Are (No Matter What They Say) by Elaine Welteroth
