When I was at the gym the other day one of my locker room buddies asked me for a book recommendation.

Off the top of my head I suggested Jess Walter's "Beautiful Ruins" because of Robin's recent conversation and because it's such a fun read. But then several other really good books we've featured on the show over the years came to mind which she hadn't heard about.

And the more I started thinking about it, the more books I remembered. So here's a list, if you missed them when they were published you might want to check some of them out for your summer reading pleasure.

Fiction
