It's that time of the year when book store and libraries put out their Beach Reads recommendations, so Conservative-Libertarian Fiction Alliance decided to get in on the action. Of course, cultural contrarians that the CLFA-ers are, as the old ad for a now-defunct car goes, "this is not your father's" (or mother's) beach reads. We've got historical fiction and fantasy, thrillers and satire, dystopias and alternate history, among others, and these novels will stay with you long after your swimwear and flip flops are packed away for another year. So before you put on that sunscreen and head to your favorite vacation spot, even if it's the one in your own backyard, be sure to stock up on some of the most exciting new fiction out there that is guaranteed to make your summer even more memorable.
The full Book Bomb list is here. Please read responsibly and re-apply sunscreen as needed. Have a great summer everyone!
Note: Not every author on this list is a member of CLFA. While most of the novels are written by members, some were chosen on the basis of simply being quality fiction that fits into our general mold. Enjoy!
