A Few Vacation Reads

Want some reading for your trips to the beach this summer? It's tough to find that balance between the latest Danielle Steel and Anna Karenina. Here are two not-too-light but not-too-heavy titles to try:

Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner

Remember Cannie Shapiro, the heroine from Weiner's debut novel Good In Bed? Cannie found her happy ending after her mother came out of the closet, her father fell out of her life, and her ex-boyfriend started chronicling their ex-sex life in the pages of a national magazine. Well, Cannie's back with Certain Girls. Find out what happens to Cannie and enjoy Weiner's sharp observations of modern life.

One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell

A landmark building at a fashionable address connects the characters introduced in this new novel by the author of Sex and the City and Lipstick Jungle. An elderly socialite who lives in the building dies, and her apartment is up for grabs. Plots twists and a breezy pace will keep any reader interested.
