I like a good Netflix binge as much as the next person. But, I love reading. I look forward to my one-hour train trip to work because I can get some good reading in (and consequently miss my stop on a regular basis), I carry my Kindle everywhere (because you just never know), and I’m guilty of turning down lunch offers so I can read instead.
So, it should come as no surprise that one of my favourite things to do in summer is to hit the sand with a great book—whether it be sexy and scandalous or dark and suspenseful.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share the beach reads that are on my radar at the moment. There’s a mix of classic chick lit and Gone Girl-esque thrillers, so you’re guaranteed to find something that’s perfect for you (FYI, I’ll be starting with Truly Madly Deeply by one of my all-time fav authors, Liane Moriarty).

Scrappy Little Nobody, Anna Kendrick
