Steal Your Summer Reading List From Hillary Clinton

Yesterday, the Cut reported that during a speech at the American Library Association conference, Hillary Clinton listed all of the books she’s been reading with her unexpected time off since November, saying that besides for going on hikes and drinking white wine (relatable), she’s been consoling herself by “going back to the familiar experience of losing myself in books.” As such, there are lots of novels and mystery stories and some uplifting poetry, all of which we’ve gathered below.

My Brilliant Friend: Neapolitan Novels, Book One by Elena Ferrante
The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny
Earthly Remains: A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery by Donna Leon
In This Grave Hour: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear
The Shattered Tree: A Bess Crawford Mystery by Charles Todd
The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming by Henri J. M. Nouwen
