MILAN – Summer is upon us. Soon the schools will close, the exams will end sooner or later and we will finally have the time to take a well-deserved break from the fatigue of work. And what’s better than taking the time to devote yourself to reading those books that we never have time to finish
Maybe you are confused and you are just wondering what to read under an umbrella, or lying on a mountain meadow
. we help! Here are 10 books to read this summer. Two sirens in a glass by Federica Brunini
At the B&B delle Sirene Stanche – four rooms on a Mediterranean island hidden behind a turquoise door, a kitchen always on the move and a large terrace overlooking the sea – you don’t arrive by chance. It is not in any tourist guide or book it online or with a travel agency: you have to write a letter and motivate your request, and then wait for a blue envelope with the symbol of a siren to arrive to confirm your stay. Eva, Jonas, Olivia, Lisa and Lara know it well, the five new guests who arrive on the island for a detox holiday that promises to get body and soul back into shape, and to help them find the answers they are looking for. To welcome them are Dana, thirty years old and the desire to improve everyone’s life with a little yoga, meditation and her famous organic centrifuged her, and Tamara, middle-aged painter who loves the sea, the silence and the solitude of her studio. Together they run the inn offering yoga therapy, art, cooking, chat sessions and lots of relaxation, away from cell phones and technology. But what happens when the past breaks through, unhinging the present
From what and from whom Tamara hides, so much so that she never leaves the island
And who are Eva, Jonas, Olivia, Lisa and Lara. Alison Belsham’s tattoo artist
Inspector Francis Sullivan, young and ambitious, has just been promoted, and this is his first major case. Marni Mullins, a tattoo artist from Brighton, found a horribly skinned body. From the first investigations into the body it is clear that this is not an isolated murder but the work of a serial killer. The modus operandi and the signature are chilling: while the victim was still alive, the killer removed entire portions of skin, presumably tattooed. This lead leads Sullivan to believe that someone like Marni, who knows the world of tattoos like the back of her hand, is the only person who can help him. But you have so many reasons not to trust the police. And when she can identify the killer’s next target, she’ll tell Sullivan or she’ll go on her own in search of the “Tattoo Thief”.Our hours counted by Marco Amerighi
And the summer of 1985 in Badiascarna, a tiny village perched on the Tuscan hills far from the cities of art and postcard vines, Sauro Terra deceives time by hunting for lizards and confiding in the David Bowie poster hanging in the room. At fourteen he doesn’t know what to do with his life, but one thing is clear to him: when he grows up he will be the exact opposite of his father. Since being sent into early retirement by the NovaLago geothermal power plant, Rino Terra has cut ties with the world and is now lost in the woods reciting odd pamphlets of communist militancy. Even though he still may not know it, his lungs are full of asbestos fibers; the asbestos that has detached from the NovaLago steam pipes and which, like an invisible snowfall, is covering all of Badiascarna. Tired of always being around that father, Sauro summons his friends – Momo, a skinny man afraid of everything; the Doctor, with ice-cold eyes and the arrogance of someone who has nothing to lose; and the Trifo, a troubled boy who has disturbing visions before falling asleep – and starts a punk band.
