Go Behind The Scenes: What We Are Reading This Summer

You’ve seen what some of your favorite authors are reading this summer, but what about Harlequin employees? Take a look behind the scenes at what we have on our TBR lists!

I like to alternate between suspenseful thrillers and feel-good rom-coms in the summer, depending on my mood. If you’re looking for an ‘edge of your seat’ read that you can devour in an afternoon on the beach, I’d recommend Lone Witness by Shirlee McCoy. Or if you’re relaxing with a drink on a patio, you might like The Cactus by Sarah Haywood – it’s sweet, funny, and you’ll completely fall in love with it. Happy reading!  –Lauren Nesbit, Assistant Product Manager,  Core Business

I’m going to kick-off the summer with a rom-com, The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai, which is out on July 2nd . I am also excited for the already released YA book These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling, and Recursion by Blake Crouch, a sci-fi thriller, out on June 11th. –Natasha Shaikh, Assistant Manager, eCommerce

I’m a huge non-fiction fan and as soon as I learned about Humans, I couldn’t wait to put in on my TBR list! It’s a mix of pop culture, history, science and politics – all topics that can be a bit mundane, but not if they’re written in Tom Phillip’s witty and entertaining way. It’s a great summer read for someone who doesn’t want to leave any learning behind. –Katie Didow, Email and Content Marketing Coordinator

Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up by Tom Phillips

In my world, summer reading is all about fun. It’s about what’s going to bring me the most joy sitting on my balcony, what’s going to make me laugh during a beach escape on a long weekend or what will keep me company on my morning commute. So far, my favorite summer read has been Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. This was a delightfully delightful experience of delight. Oh, and did I mention it was delightful? Casey McQuiston knows how to deliver absolutely all of the feels while still absolutely refusing to pull any punches when it comes to politics. Red, White & Royal Blue delivers laughs, tears, sorrow and joy in equal measure. It was quite simply the best. But summer’s just beginning and there are SO MANY great books coming. I’m most excited to read Sisters of Summer’s End by Lori Foster, which is out on June 11. I read the first book in the series (though they can each be read alone) last summer and just fell head over heels. Summer’s calling! Time to make that TBR list! –Eden Church, Assistant Product Manager
