There are two types of people in this world: beach readers, and serial readers. I’m not saying one category is superior to the other, but I will say without a doubt I fall into the former. I don’t prioritize reading in my typical day but I live for a fun, frivolous book when I’m traveling or laying around on a beach. This post might be titled “summer beach reads” but that’s really code for “good stories that are enjoyable and don’t make you think too hard.”
A while back, I polled all of you on Instagram to see if you had any recommendations for books to read this summer. Well, 400+ comments later (you guys really came through!) I finally narrowed the options down to a top 10 list of summer beach reads. You will probably notice a common theme in that the large majority of these are murder mysteries/thrillers. What can I say, maybe I’m an adrenaline junkie or wannabe detective. Honestly I’m not even ashamed, because after looking at your favorites, I think it’s safe to say you guys are too.
I’ve read several of the books on this list, but will report back as I read through the rest! You can also check out last year’s list for more recommendations and reviews. Happy reading!
I’ve read this one and LOVED it. SO many of you said this was on your list as well! It’s an easy read with a MAJOR plot twist. Have I convinced you yet?
