Whether they're on your kindle, your iPad, or as good old fashioned physical books, this summer is a fantastic season for reading. From Tom Perotta's "The Leftovers", to Madeline Miller's "The Song of Achilles," New England writers have published some of the year's most exciting books. The region has also served as the inspiration for many tremendous stories as well.
