If you’re looking for your next pool or beach read, you’ve come to the right place. I’m sharing the best books to read during the summer!
I hear a lot of people say, “I need to read more,” but they never seem to find the time to make it happen. Summer is an excellent season to begin! I always find myself gravitating towards romantic comedies or cute, YA contemporary during these months. There’s something about summer that begs for a lighthearted story. I scrolled through all of my Goodreads favorites to narrow down a list of 25 books that I think are absolutely perfect to read by the pool, on the beach, or inside avoiding the heat (like me).

Some of my most beloved books of all time made it onto this extensive list, and I’m sure you’ll notice some fan-favorites as well. Almost all of these are standalones that can practically be read (or listened to, if you prefer audiobooks) in a single sitting, with the exception of two fabulous trilogies. Your summer is about to get even more exhilarating with these creative and captivating stories.
