A lot of best of summer lists have books that release throughout the summer. I want you to have access to these great reads NOW, so without further ado, here is my list for the best beach reads of 2017.
Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale
This one has it all: heartbreak, romance, mystery, and even several beach scenes. When you turn the last page and are disappointed it’s over: the sequel releases July 4! You can preorder it here. Both books are currently available on Kindle for less than $5!
Nine Women, One Dress by Jane Rosen
I blew through this book in less than 48 hours. It’s a cute and quick read that features a unique cast of characters all with a relation to that little black dress. You can read my full review here.
The Wedding Sisters by Jamie Brenner
I feel like weddings in books make the perfect summer read. Everyone can remember having or attending a quintessential summer wedding. This book has that times 3! 3 weddings of 3 sisters or 3 sisters sharing 1 wedding? Either way, this one keeps dropping secrets until the end.
The Drowning Girls by Paula Treick DeBoard
We can’t get through summer without a psychological thriller to keep you turning the pages eager to find out what happens. This one reminded me of a horrible car crash where you just can’t turn away. Not everything in this idyllic neighborhood is as it seems. Some disturbing characters lead to deadly consequences.
The Assistants by Camille Perri
Super excited to find out a movie is in the works for this one! Imagine Thelma & Louise as office assistants in today’s world and you have this romp of a novel. Anyone who has ever dealt with office politics will appreciate the humor of this debut.
Forks, Knives, and Spoons by Leah DeCesare
Aside from a throwback to the ’80s, this book made me reminisce about my college days. The lovable characters navigating relationships both in school and the real world made this a hard to put down debut. You can read my full review here.
The Regulars by Georgia Clark
If you enjoy a little magical realism thrown into a story, I hope you will give this book a try. It is a smart and modern age fairy tale for Generation X and Generation Y. You can read my full review here.
I would love to hear what you thought of these books and what others are on your summer reading list! This post contains affiliate links.
