Even More Summer Reading

We’re just full of suggestions and discussions on summer reading. Here’s another batch to get you rolling into June…


You Are Now Less Dumb: How to Conquer Mob Mentality, How to Buy Happiness, and All the Other Ways to Outsmart Yourself by David McRaney

In this entertaining collection of psychological essays, McRaney explores the ways in which we deceive ourselves. Through metacognition, thinking about thinking, we can begin to unravel the logical fallacies that cloud our everyday decisions. It’s a great companion to the You Are Not So Smart podcast!

The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells

I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of Dan Wells’s John Wayne Cleaver series. The most unlikely of heroes, John Wayne Cleaver, shares common struggles: growing up in a small town, raised by a single mom, juggling school with friendships and his first love. He is also a sociopath who can see demons masquerading as humans. “The Devil’s Only Friend” follows the first three books, I Am Not A Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, and I Don’t Want To Kill You. It will be released on June 16 and I’m on the waiting list.

The Girl on the Train : A Novel by Paula Hawkins

The reviews liken it to Gone Girl or Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Rear Window, and I would agree. So far, it is entertaining and holding my interest.
