I LOVE going to the beach, and it’s essential to have one of the best beach reads tucked away in my bag (or loaded on my Kindle). There’s not much that’s more relaxing to me than reading a great book while sitting on the beach.
When selecting the perfect book to take with me to the beach, I tend to choose from a handful of genres. I like chick lit, suspense/mystery, humor, and legal thrillers. My list of preferred books is probably different than those full of the newest releases, because my list tends to favor my favorite authors. There are a handful of authors whose collections I have in hardback, and I re-read them. I like the continuity of their stories within series, while others just write so epically that I don’t want to miss a new story.
This list is not inclusive of ALL of my favorite authors, or their books, but when I’m going to the beach this summer, these are books in my actual TBR (to be read) pile that I choose from. These are books I have physical hard copies of. When I’m reading at home, or on the go, you’ll usually see me with my Kindle, because it’s lighter and more portable. The Paperwhite performs really well outdoors, with no screen glare, but because I’m with children at the beach, I have a fear of them getting sand in it, so I tend to take hardback books with me.
Here are some of the best beach reads, in case you are looking for one to take with you 🙂
