Here are a few books at the top of the charts for summer reading:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

What is your spouse not telling you? When Amy disappears on the morning of her fifth wedding anniversary, suspicion is cast on her elusive husband, Nick. With no remains to be found in this psychological thriller, readers must choose sides as they read Amy and Nick’s conflicting accounts.

The Watch by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya

Told from several perspectives, this literary novel creates a microcosm of war within a single scenario. A lone Afghan woman confronts a small group of American soldiers at a desert outpost in Kandahar, demanding the body of her brother for proper burial. Grieving sister or suicide bomber?—a nerve-racking standoff begins.

Mrs. Robinson’s Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady by  Kate Summerscale

In 1858, the lusty, adulterous contents of Mrs. Isabella Robinson’s diary were read in court at one of England’s first and most scandalous divorce trials. This narrative nonfiction work recounts the inner life of the repressed Robinson, the ensuing legal battle with her husband, and the changing face of Victorian marriage.
