Our Go Girls around the world are still finishing up Kira Salak’s Four Corners as part of our #GoGirlReads travel book club — and the best part is, she’s still poised to answer some questions from the audience in an upcoming post.
But while we wait for her reply, only one question remains:
What are we going to read next?
We’re putting our next #gogirlreads book up to a vote — and you can help us pick our August/September read!
Here are the finalists:
1. On the Road by Jack Kerouac

From Amazon.com: In its time Jack Kerouac’s masterpiece was the bible of the Beat Generation, the essential prose accompaniment to Allen Ginsberg’s Howl. While it stunned the public and literary establishment when it was published in 1957, it is now recognized as an American classic. With On the Road, Kerouac discovered his voice and his true subject—the search for a place as an outsider in America.
On the Road swings to the rhythms of fifties underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns, and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveler and mystic, the living epitome of Beat.
2. Love with a Chance of Drowning by Torre DeRoche

From Amazon.com: New love. Exotic destinations.
A once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
What could go wrong?
City girl Torre DeRoche isn’t looking for love, but a chance encounter in a San Francisco bar sparks an instant connection with a soulful Argentinean man who unexpectedly sweeps her off her feet. The problem? He’s just about to cast the dock lines and voyage around the world on his small sailboat, and Torre is terrified of deep water. However, lovesick Torre determines that to keep the man of her dreams, she must embark on the voyage of her nightmares, so she waves good-bye to dry land and braces for a life-changing journey that’s as exhilarating as it is terrifying.
