My Favorite Books of the Summer

Well, I have been avoiding this post for as long as possible, because I didn't want to admit summer is coming to an end, but here we are.  I can feel those crisp fall mornings elbowing their way in.  But it was a great summer, right? I hope yours was filled with good books and great times hopefully somewhere near the water. 

Also, the winner of my beach read giveaway goes to Summer H. A very fitting name for the giveaway! Congrats, Summer! I hope you enjoy the book.  


Favorite Beach Reads of the Summer:

It's tough to narrow it down, but I included the ones that really impacted me the most.  I have linked my review when possible!

1. Every Summer After by Carley Fortune - My favorite beach read of the summer!

2.  The Summer Place by Jennifer Weiner  - A zany family drama

3.  The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand - Her most "fun" beach read yet!

4.  Carrie Soto Is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid - Just so good! As I was reading it, I was convinced Carrie is real.

5.  Meant to Be by Emily Giffin - I loved the JFK Jr. vibes

6.  Sea Glass Summer by Miranda Liasson - An adorable summer romance

7.  The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston - A compelling paranormal romance

8.  Nora Goes Off Script by Annabel Monaghan - If you like Hallmark movies, this one is for you

9.  The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden - Magical realism done well!

10. On Gin Lane by Brooke Lea Foster - A memorable historical beach read!

11.  The Lost Summers of Newport by Beatriz Williams, Karen White, and Lauren Willig - These three can do no wrong!

My Favorite Backlist Beach Reads:

I read a few older beach reads this summer, but these two stood out the most.

1.  It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey - Very cute fish out of water romance! (Review to come!)

2.  The Siren by Katherine St. John  - Movies, celebrities, a tropical island, a murder!
