Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer

Ooooh, Summer. The bain of my existence. I don’t exactly hate the summer, it’s that I detest the heat and I can’t be in the sun for long periods of time (I’m SOOOO fair…) so it’s a battle for me. That being said, I LOVEEEEE the outdoors and spend a lot of time relaxing on my balcony, laying by the pool [in the shaded loungers!] and relaxing in the park under trees. And I definitely have books with me at all times 😛 I decided to only include books on my shelves. I won’t be shopping for summertime reads since my TBR is huge! I love light, contemporary reads during my outdoor reading sessions and you can definitely see that reflected in my picks…

The Fill-In Boyfriend  The Distance Between Us  Gossip Girl  Just Listen  Dairy Queen

1. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West • OMG, seriously… I wish Kasie West had ten contemporary books because I would have her for my entire list! This is her newest release, which I haven’t read yet, but I will be jumping into this within the next month hopefully!
2. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West • Haha… see above point. I planned on rereading this one anyway, and what perfect time than in the summer? I LOVE this book!
3. Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar • I love the tv show so I’ve wanted to read the series for awhile. I think the summer is the perfect time to read this one!
4. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen • Well, one, I really need to read a Dessen book. Two, this just screams summer to me for some reason!
5. Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock • I have no idea why I chose this one other than it just sounds like something I would like to lounge on my balcony and read in the wind. Weird, I know… it’s probably the cover haha.

Welcome Caller, This is Chloe  Revenge Wears Prada  Nowhere But Home  Open Road Summer  What I Thought Was True

6. Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Corriell • Honestly, I have no idea why I chose this one other than I just really think this will be fun to read in a day in the sun! Has anyone read this? I haven’t seen a lot of buzz about it!
7. Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger • I CANNOT believe I haven’t read this yet. Maybe because The Devil Wears Prada is my all time favorite chick lit book ever, but this is definitely one I will be reading this summer!
8. Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer • I don’t think I need to even explain this. I’m probably the only person who hasn’t read this yet and it seems like such a laying-in-the-grass type of read.
9. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord • Ok, I loved Emery Lord’s newest release SOOOO much, I’ve got to pick this backup. I know it’s a great summer read and I think having loved her newest release I am going to fall in love with this. 
10. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick • Real reason I chose this: It just looks like a beach read 😛


Ok, so of course my Kindle comes everywhere with me so here are some others that I’m just itching to read this summer! Sometimes when I go for a walk I just bring a small shoulder purse that’s light as a feather, but it fits my Kindle. So if I have a spur of the moment outdoor reading session, I’ll be prepared!

Nantucket Blue  Boomerang  To All The Boys I've Loved Befre  Catching Jordan  Scoring Wilder

Have you read any of these? What’s on your beach list?!

    Haha, I’ll be joining you in the shade. 🙂

    I wish Kasie West would write faster, because I love all of her books, and I want more! I just read The Fill-In Boyfriend, and The Distance Between Us is one of my favorites.

    No summer reading list is complete without a Sarah Dessen book!
    To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is ridiculously adorable. I hope you bump it up your list!

    Welcome Caller is a solid pick for a beach read! It didn’t blow me away but it was super adorable and I loved Chloe and her obsession with shoes haha. Open Road Summer is so great as well, I haven’t read Emery’s newest book though so that will be on my summer list. What I Thought Was True is so great as well and Gossip Girl!! I actually read the first book a while ago and though I kinda stopped watching the show, it was very entertaining.
