I don’t know about you, but nothing gives me maximum summer vibes like stretching out on a lounge chair with a cool drink and a heartwarming rom-com. Give me all the fun, lighthearted love stories as I sip lemonade and bask in the sunshine, please! Bonus points for escapist reads that whisk me away to exotic locales or thoughtful stories that explore family dynamics alongside a happily ever after.
From tropical beaches, windswept safaris, cozy lakeside cabins, big family weddings, and treasure hunts in the American West, here are five books I’m tucking in my beach bag this summer. Enjoy with sunscreen, the beverage of your choice, and a hefty helping of starry-eyed delight.
