9 Beach Reads that Seriously Deliver on the Sisterhood Vibes

in Fiction by
summer books about sisterhood

From the waves to the romance, we love a good beach read here at BookTrib. And while true beach reads tend to have certain things in common (compelling relationships, family drama, a lake or an ocean visit), this year we’ve noticed a more specific trend: sisters and sisterhood. It seems like almost every beach read we reach for this year is grappling with some aspect of sisterhood – including a long-lost sister returning, estranged sisters rediscovering their bond, or close sisters who find their relationships changing with time. No matter what the premise is, these summer books are all about how sisters can influence each other’s lives forever. Expect heartfelt, family-driven reads proving that important relationships can come in all…

Books for TV Addicts: 3 books to read while Suits takes a vacation

in Fiction by

For years, I’d been hearing buzz about the highly-rated USA show Suits. Since I’ve never been a big fan of lawyer procedurals, I mostly ignored the hype. But then a friend informed me that Harvey Spector is one of the hottest characters on television. So, naturally, I decided to give it a shot. She was not wrong. Gabriel Macht’s Harvey is one of those rare characters who manages to be both powerful and sexy while still likeable and sensitive. Think Don Draper on Mad Men, but with more sports cars and less cigarette smoke. And he’s not the only good part of the show. Suits follows one of New York City’s top law firms as the partners battle for power…

Susan Mallery, the Tolkien of romance, shines in Fool’s Gold worldbuilding

in Romance by

Fool’s Gold, California, was officially established in 1849. There’s a town festival every April called the Easter Egg Drop. If you’re looking for a drink, try the Fox and Hound, with 25 beers on tap. Or maybe step into Jo’s Bar, where every night is ladies’ night. No, I’m not actually describing a real town. Fool’s Gold is the brainchild of popular romance writer Susan Mallery, and she has created an entire world within this quaint small town. Visit her website and you can find maps, a complete history, a who’s who guide, and even ads for various businesses.

Susan Mallery on how friendship starts

in Fiction by

Finding our one true, romantic love is important, but it’s not the only cornerstone relationship of a happy life. We have just as deep a need for friends. The craving for connection is fundamental and universal, and so we search for our tribe. The infinite variations of friendship fascinate me. How does someone transition from stranger to acquaintance to friend? It’s magic! There’s something in each of us that responds to something in the people who become our closest friends. Often, it’s almost instantaneous. We meet, we click. Other times, it takes a little longer for that deep bond to form. And sometimes, we don’t remember not being friends with this special person because she’s been in our lives since…
