We are halfway through June and I hope you have your summer reading list prepped and ready! Those books for vacation won’t pack themselves. I personally love a good quick read for beach days in the summer. Of course, I have some suggestions.

Beach Read

I mean can I write a blog post about books for the beach and not include books by Emily Henry? All 3 of her books are perfect beach reads! While this one is technically set at a lake it’s such a good rom com. My favorite by her is probably People We Meet On Vacation, but you can’t go wrong with any of them!

The Lion’s Den

Next up is for those who like a little thriller/mystery. Katherine St. John writes books that are just scary enough but not too bad. I am a big scaredy cat and these are perfect for me. The audio books are also great if you prefer that method.


If you love a good enemies to lovers than this book is for you! It’s based on an island cruise and the romance is a nice slow burn that I really enjoyed.

The Unhoneymooners

Another amazing rom com set on an island. This one is also an enemies to lovers, but the enemies part doesn’t last very long. They quickly become friends and then more. This book starts off with two people having to go on their siblings honeymoon when their brother and sister can no longer attend.

Do you have other books you’d recommend for a beach vacation?
