USA Today Summer Picks

Reflecting USA Today‘s reduced book coverage, this year’s summer books preview consists of just ten titles, most of them expected. At #1 is Stephen King’s End of Watch (S&S/Scribner, June 7) and at #3 is the summer debut on every list, Emma Cline’s The Girls (PRH/Random House, June 14).

Still, they manage to pick three titles that are not on any of the other previews:

#5 Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days by Tavis Smiley and David Ritz (Hachette/Little, Brown, June 21)

#6 The Land of Stories: An Author’s Odyssey by Chris Colfer (Hachette/Little, Brown, July 12), the next in the series for young readers.

#10 Trump Revealed by Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher (S&S/Scribner, Aug. 23),  a late addition to summer releases, by  Washington Post investigative and political reporters. USA Today wonders what could possibly be left to reveal about the candidate.
