Up in the Air

BY Alanna Loftus | July 17, 2018 | Feature Features National

Long Island's Alanna Loftus, who's behind the popular @_booksintheair_ Instagram account, shares the best new books to sit in the sand with.

01 All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin
Best-selling author Emily Giffin does not disappoint with her most recent novel, in which Nina Browning lives a wealthy life and ponders what she really wants. When a risqué photograph erupts a scandal at a prestigious private school, Nina is forced to reassess her marriage, lifestyle and self with people she rarely crossed paths with before. Told from multiple points of view, this book addresses issues that are becoming more and more relevant in today’s world. Through Nina’s journey, Giffin leaves her audience with a clear message: Live your life with meaning.

02 The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
Lovers of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, look no further. This novel will have you page-turning all day until you realize you haven’t left the beach chair in hours. Vanessa’s hedge-fund husband is leaving her for a younger woman. Readers might assume Vanessa is just the jealous ex-wife, but as Hendricks and Pekkanen urge, “assume nothing.” You will not discover the full picture until the very last page. Holly Bario of Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, who also acquired the movie rights to The Girl on the Train, is now in the midst of turning this psychological thriller into a major motion picture.
