Our Top Poolside Reads for Summer 2017

We’re just a few weeks away from Memorial Day Weekend 2017 and you know what that means: the re-opening of the pool at Arcadia Run! Bring on the lazy summer days spent poolside with friends, splashing around with the kids, or laying in the shade with a great book. It can be hard to decide on what book to choose, but we’ve decided to give you a list of our favorites to help make it easier! All you need to enjoy this summer at Arcadia Run is a spot by the pool and a book to read!


Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies was the show that everyone was talking about this spring, but did you know it was a book first? Don’t worry about trying to binge watch all the episodes; you’ll be hooked from the first chapter! Murder, intrigue, sassy housewives…this is the perfect book for an afternoon at the pool.


Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

From the author who brought us ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ comes another thought provoking story about the real life problems that exist in today’s society. Follow along as Ruth, a nurse in Connecticut, deals with racism, privilege, and how one determines the justice of it all in this book that you won’t be able to put down.


Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Don’t let the title scare you! Think less numbers and scientific equations, and think more about questions that people ask themselves. How do we fit within the universe? What does it all mean? Tyson breaks down some of the most complex and interesting aspects of our world into quick chapters that are easy to understand and will be perfect for contemplating under the sun this summer.


The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines

Calling all lovers of HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper! Chip and Jojo, the amazing husband and wife team taking over Waco, Texas, decided that a TV show wasn’t enough and put pen to paper to bring to life their entire story. From how they met, to their first fixer upper, with plenty of photos, you’ll fall in love with this book and rush to catch the next episode of their show!


Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Hawkins gripped you with her novel ‘The Girl on the Train’ (also a movie with Emily Blunt) and does it again with ‘Into the Water.’ With twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very last page, your friends will be begging to borrow this book when you’re done with it!
