The Truth About Forever / Along For the Ride by Sarah Dessen - Summer wouldn't be complete without a Dessen novel and these two are my favorites. It's a summer read with substance as only Dessen can do.
Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton - This story truly captures the magic of summer as a teenager.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick- Fans of Sarah Dessen will love this captivating summer read. One of my favorites from last year.
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby - This novel is more than just a beach read; it is a powerful story of life, loss, and allowing yourself to move on.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler - This novel is heartbreaking, beautiful, and it really captures what it's like for someone to grieve and ultimately, find peace and move on.
Sweet Life by Mia King- I loved being transported to a Hawaiian paradise.
Indiscretion by Charles Dubrow- This is a steamyyyy read that would be great to take along to the beach this summer, but I'm warning you -- it might have you blushing!
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin - There's drama, romance, a beautiful turn of the twentieth century setting, betrayal, and a grandiose way of life that has long been forgotten.
Hemingway's Girl by Erika Robuck- fantastic historical fiction, especially if you are a fan of Key West and Ernest Hemingway. Did I mention it takes place at Key West?
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer- A smart beach read; plus, I hear they are making a movie out of this book!
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin - This is one is poolside perfection and chick-lit at its best.
Insatiable by Meg Cabot- Sick of the Sookie Stackhouse series? Then check out this book; it is sexy, hilarious, and a dangerous rendezvous with the dark side.
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman- This memorable story has fantastic characters and it takes place in gorgeous Savannah.
