You may forget to pack an extra towel or a change of clothes, but don’t forget to bring something to read. If you’re headed to the beach this summer, remember to tuck a good book in your bag. Beach reads are all about the books you can’t put down, the real page-turners. With blue skies above and warm sand below, we think you'll unlock good vibes...with a good book in your hands!
At the beach, the genre doesn’t really matter, either. It’s more about getting lost in an absorbing story. If you’re in the mood for a hilarious rom-com, we suggest Four Aunties and a Wedding, the sequel to Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Sutanto. Want a haunting mystery set on an island? Try How to Kill Your Best Friend by Lexie Elliott. And if you love character-driven novels with a strong sense of place and witty dialogue, add Adult Assembly Required by Abbi Waxman to your TBR (to-be-read) pile this summer. Whether you’re searching for a light read or a psychological thriller, we think these absorbing titles are the perfect beach day companions.
