Top Titles at Public Libraries - June 2021

July 9, 2021

Here are the top twenty titles public library patrons looked for in June 2021.

Summer is here! The author of this newsletter believes a “beach read” is whatever you read on the beach, but publishers time certain releases for the summer. Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid heads the June arrivals. Following a family of adult children on a literal beach in Malibu, Ophrah Weekly wrote “If summer could somehow fit into a book, then you’d find it in Malibu Rising.” Elin Hilderbrand’s new novel, Golden Girl, takes place in summery Nantucket; New York Magazine calls her the “queen of beach reads.” Other summer-themed books include Jennifer Weiner’s That Summer and Emily Henry’s People We Meet on Vacation, published in May. In thrillers, James Patterson and Former President Bill Clinton released The President’s Daughter, a follow-up to their The President Is Missing, published the first week of June, 2018.
