    We know, we know — summer weather is still alive and kickin', but that doesn't mean you can't get a jump start on the season's newest tomes. As much as we love a good piece of literature, we like to refer to the pros when it comes to doling out major reading advice (cue our previous reading lists from James Frey and Michael Cunnigham!) So, we turned to Gigi Grazer, New York Times best-selling author (and scribe of the book that inspired the USA miniseries The Starter Wife), who just released her fifth novel The After Wife.

Read (ha!) on to see what she's loving out of the crop of fall's releases, and stock up on your beach reads for your last-ditch Hamptons trip.
