The Books We Can’t Stop Talking About Right Now Women Who Travel

    • Places & Travel

As temperatures begin to warm up and we start picturing the lazy park hangs and beach days in store for us this summer, our minds have already started whirring at the reading possibilities. Over the past year, we've turned to reading as both an escape from our current world and a way to explore without leaving home. While we'll be a bit more mobile this summer, our love for books hasn't changed, so we've once again tapped Jynne Dilling Martin associate publisher at Riverhead Books, and Lisa Lucas, senior vice president and publisher of Pantheon and Schocken Books, to help craft the ultimate summer reading list of books written by women. Whether you're itching for a Greek myth retelling, a workplace thriller, a deep dive into the natural world, or a novel about a cannibalistic food writer, we've got you covered. 
Here's a full list of what we talked about:


Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer


Finding the Mother Tree by Suzanne Simard


The Hard Crowd by Rachel Kushner


A Certain Hunger by Chelsea G. Summers


Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel


Salvation City, by Sigrid Nunez


Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter by Ali Smith


Sisters by Daisy Johnson


Circe and Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller


The Copenhagen Trilogy by Tove Ditlevsen


The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris

Seek You by Kristen Radtke
