I have a little backlog of books that I’ve read lately that would be perfect to read whilst lounging next to a body of water this summer. Just picture it – the heat of the sun warms your skin, an icy drink makes a puddle next to you, the smell of sunscreen fills you up with nostalgia and you hear the screech of children playing nearby. Of course you need a book to go along with all this steamy summer goodness.
Honestly, I never thought the day would come where I could actually read while my kids were playing and packing a book was always a bit of a pipe dream. But it’s here! My kids are 2, 4 and 5, and I can get a few good pages in while I’m lifeguarding. Maybe you’re there too! Or maybe you need to just lay in your backyard while they nap and pretend you’re next to a body of water – that’s ok too!!
The perfect beach read to me is a little fluffy, immersive, and not 1000 pages long. Something with romance, maybe a little spice, but characters you can really connect with. A few good books that are worth tucking into your beach bag are shared below!
The Hotel Nantucket, Elin Hildebrand
The Spanish Love Deception, Elena Armas
Happy Place, Emily Henry
The Love Hypothesis, Ali Hazelwood
The Roughest Draft, Emily Wibberley
The Perfect Find, Tia Williams
Every Summer After, Carley Fortune
Heart Bones, Colleen Hoover – This book made me want to sit around and read in a swimsuit.
