On Wednesday, former US President Barack Obama posted on Facebook his favorite books he's been reading over the summer.
The Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winning author Colson Whitehead -- best known for his previous book The Underground Railroad -- tackles another moment in American history told through the story of two boys sentenced to a nightmarish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida.
If you loved the Academy Award-nominated film Arrival, then you already know sci-fi author Ted Chiang's work.
This historical novel by Hilary Mantel won the coveted Booker Prize back in 2009.
As a reimagining of life under Henry VIII, this novel gives a glimpse of the real-life charmer and ambitious lawyer Thomas Cromwell who served as chief minister to King Henry VIII of England from 1532 to 1540 -- until he was beheaded by the King.
"Hilary Mantel's epic fictionalized look at Thomas Cromwell's rise to power, came out in 2009, but I was a little busy back then, so I missed it," Obama wrote.
