Happy Summer! My Favorite Books to Bring to the Beach

Summer has just begun, and one of my favorite things about this time of year are the many new books that come out. I love a good “beach read,” and will strongly stand behind that term as a very positive thing. What could be better than reading a book while watching the waves crash on the sand in front of you? Few things, if you ask me. And just because something is considered a beach book, does not mean it isn’t literary, thought-provoking, or just downright entertaining. Below are 10 of my favorite books to bring to the beach – their stories are absorbing, their characters engaging and empathetic. The perfect addition to any summer vacation (or staycation)!
