The beach is one of my favourite places to read. My perfect day includes a beach chair, my toes in the sand, and a book in my hands. I enjoy reading a wide variety of books in the summer, but while sitting on the beach I tend to lean more towards contemporaries. These are just a few of my favourites! This post is my sneaky way of getting suggestions from you guys on what to read this summer!
Sisterhood of Travelling Pants– This is the first series I ever read on the beach. It is so nostalgic!
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella– I think all of Sophie Kinsella books make great summer reads. I’ve Got Your Number is my personal favourite of hers.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo– I think you probably know my opinion of this book by now! I think it makes a perfect summer read if you are looking for something that is a little bit heavier than the typical contemporary.
Miss You by Kate Eberlen– Not your typical love story! We see the two protagonists struggles throughout the decades before they even meet.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz– A really beautiful romance with a lot of depth. It is slow paced and charming- a perfect combination for summer!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen– I have not read a lot of Sarah Dessen but I have enjoyed the few I have read. I thought Along for the Ride was adorable! A lot of her books are set in the summer time and they are really sweet love stories.
Sea Swept by Nora Roberts– Much like Sophia Kinsella, I think all of Nora Roberts books make great beach reads! I enjoy her series the best! Her Chesapeake Bay series is phenomenal!
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen– One of my favourite books. I read this one on the beach so I sort of associate it with the summer.
I just finished The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone and it is also an awesome summer read with some depth. Look out for that review some time soon!
I am currently reading The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty and I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson– both of which I am thoroughly enjoying and are excellent beach reads.
