- 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.
