Summer Reads Returns With Ashland's Bloomsbury Books

A little more time on your hands, the heat making you drowsy... it's a great time to reach for a book and head for a shady spot in which to read it.

Our Summer Reads segment returns, a weekly visit with regional independent bookstores about their lists of good books.

Bloomsbury Books in Ashland is up first; co-owner Sheila Burns returns with a list of staff recommendations, joined by staffer Skye Hillgartner.

Skye's List:

  • The House in the Cerulean Sky by T.J. Klune
  • Circe by Madeline Miller
  • People You Meet On Vacation by Emily Henry
  • Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson
  • The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer

Sheila's List:

  • The Sweetness of Water by Nathan Harris (Ashland grad!)
  • The Falling by T.J. Newman
  • Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan
  • A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende
