A Summer Reading List You Can Trust

President Barack Obama has released his annual summer reading list. On Facebook, he wrote, “I’ve read his summer reading list. “I’ve read a couple of great books this year and wanted to share some of my favorites so far. What have you been reading this summer?” Obama’s list:

Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel
Why We’re Polarized by Ezra Klein
The Candy House by Jennifer Egan
A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance by Hanif Abdurraqib
To Paradise by Hanya Yanagihara
Silverview by John Le Carré
Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson
Family Chao by Lan Samantha Chang
Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Mouth to Mouth by Antoine Wilson
The Great Experiment: Why Diverse Democracies Fall Apart and How They Can Endure by Yascha Mounk
The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan
Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby
Blood in the Garden: The Flagrant History of the 1990s New York Knicks by Chris Herring

I’ve only read three of the books, but had four others on my TBR list already. President Obama has never steered me wrong yet.
