I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Nothing complements a beach day better than a great page-turner. I tend to read books more during the summer than any other season. It might be because I’m a little more relaxed, because I travel more, or because there are just more hours of daylight. Either way, I love crossing some great books off my list during the summer months. And today, I’m going to share the titles on this year’s list with all of you today…
Scroll down to see the top 10 books I recommend reading this summer…
1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This story brings truth to the phrase “opposites attract” as two characters show each other the real meaning of happiness when time is precious. Read this if you loved The Fault in Our Stars.

If you love online shopping and girl power, you will love this Cinderella story about Nasty Gal co-founder and CEO, Sophia Amoruso. Prepare to feel inspired to build your own empire after you read this one!
3. The Vacationers by Emma Straub
Amazon describes this story as “An irresistible, deftly observed novel about the secrets, joys, and jealousies that rise to the surface over the course of an American family’s two-week stay in Mallorca.” Sounds like a great summer read to me!
4. The One and Only by Emily Giffin

9. A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams
I’m not one to judge a book by its cover, but the appearance alone just screams summer. A story of friendship, betrayal, family, and secrets, it seems like this book was meant to be read on the beach.
10. The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer
A story about a boy who lost his father and the boy’s working class mother trying to make ends meet, this book is rumored to be beautifully written with amazing characters. An all-American memoir.
