Posting this recommendation list on Friday, June 24, 2022, feels funny to me. I’ve thought about this date for so long. See, in my new rom-com, MEANT TO BE MINE, my protagonist, Edie Meyer, knows the exact day she’s going to meet the love of her life, thanks to a prophecy by her eccentric grandmother. The date? You guessed it: June 24. Unlike Edie’s grandma, I can’t say with any certainty if you’re going to bump into your soulmate today. But I can try to help you fall in love with an amazing book.
Whether you’re in search of a page-turner to pull you out of your reading slump or you need a book to toss into your beach bag, I highly recommend the six novels below. I couldn’t put any of these books down. At least one caused me to miss my subway stop!
If you wind up reading any of these six, let me know what you think: I’m @hannahorens on Instagram. Happy reading!
