Summer’s almost here guys! Which means it’s time to take out the beach reads as well. For me, summer is that time of the year where I’m more in the mood for a very specific type of book, which I call my typical beach reads. This is of course different for everybody, but for me a typical beach read checks of one or more of the things on this checklist:
- It’s happy and FLUFFY!
- It has a romance (which can even be a little cliché)
- It has a roadtrip
- It has great friendships (but let’s be honest, I like reading about friendships the entire year)
- It’s a coming of age story
So below are some of the books that are on my summer reading list. Some of these are books I still have to read and some are books I want to re-read but they all qualify as a beach read for me!
(The title of each book links to the Goodreads page with more details about the book)
The story of 2 boys, Ari and Dante, that get to know each other and start to share a special friendship – the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. This is such a highly appraised book that I’ve been wanting to read for a while now. I bought it last week and can’t wait to start it!
Morgan Matson is kind of the go-to-author for beach reads. The Unexpected Everything has just been released and I’m super excited. It’s about a politician’s daughter who has everything planned out. But then a scandal strikes and her life is changed in unexpected ways.
Another Morgan Matson! When Emily’s best friend disappears she leaves behind a list of thing for Emily to do. Things that are about to make her life a whole lot more interesting.
Roadtripping in Europe, combined with a nice little romance? Yes, please!
A story about family, friendship and the boy-next-door – sounds like the perfect summer read!
Look at that cover. Look at the title. I need it now!
I love Simon and I’ve been wanting to re-read his story practically since the moment I finished it. A cute and fluffy romance and one of the most lovable main characters I’ve ever read.
Since hearing the news that there will be a third book in the To All The Boys I’ve Love Before series (YAY!), I’ve been super excited to re-read the previous two books.
This book was pure beach read perfection. A roadtrip, a nice romance, lovable characters and a fun lay-out including playlists, pictures and other fun stuff.
Don’t let the cheesy name and cover fool you, this book is amazing! It’s also the only book on here that I wouldn’t mind both re-reading in summer and at Christmas time – it’s just that kind of feel-good book.
