Just picture it:
You’re in a beach chair, listening to the waves crash on the shore. There’s an ice cold beverage next to you, and you’ve got the best book in your lap.
What are you reading?
Now, my recommendations for beach reads are surprisingly similar to those books I love to share with people. I’m a creature of habit, I guess. Who says you can only read certain types of books when you’re on vacation anyway? With that being said, here are your perfect beach reads, fit for any location.
Where the Crawdads Sing – Yes, this book was 100% worth the hype. If you haven’t read it yet, it should absolutely be your next beach read.
The Shoemaker’s Wife – This is just a beautiful read. No twist or psychological nonsense…just a beautiful story.
Wild – My mom did not even a little bit like this book, but my sister and I both loved it. It’s a nice read if you’re up for a journey and the saddest page in literature that I have ever read.
Bossypants – This is one of my favorites! I gave my mom a copy before she went on a cruise, and she embarrassed my dad with how much she was laughing at the pool.
It’s Not Okay – I needed this book, even if I didn’t know it at the time. If you’re a fan of The Bachelorette, or Andi Dorfman in general, it’s an enlightening read.
You Are a Badass – This is one of the first books that really made me love reading nonfiction.
Becoming – I swear, Michelle Obama and I are the same. Minus our skin color and her amazing level of success, of course.
Girl, Stop Apologizing – This is a good one if you need a bit of a kick in the booty.
Wherever you go on your trip, even if it’s just down the street to the pool, grab one of these perfect beach reads to escape the real world for just a little while. That’s the wonder of books, right?
