Pull up a chair at the edge of the ocean, dig your feet into the sand and start reading. These are by far my favorite beach reads for this summer.

Ladies Night

Mary Kay Andrews

This book is perfect for a quick summer beach read. It has many different elements in it that keeps you turning the page. It is a great story about picking yourself back up after divorce and the trials that come along with it. I read this book in two days at the beach and wanted it to keep going. I do hope that Grace continues on in Mary Kay's next book! 

Perfect For You

Kate Perry

If you are looking for a steamy read while sitting on the beach, you have found it! Kate Perry does a great job of creating a wonderful story line and amazing chemistry between the characters. It was very easy to get engulfed in this book from chapter one. This is the first in a series of the Laurel Heights Novels, once you finish this one I'm sure you will be onto the next. 

Gone Girl

Gillian Flynn

I am sure everyone has heard of this book over the past few months! What a page turner! I usually find myself reading Chick Lit, easy reads, but was given this book by a friend of mine and I decided to give it a shot. Wow! This book had me on the edge of my seat! It is full of thrills, twists and turns. As soon as I thought I had figured something out Gillian Flynn has a way of sending you in the complete opposite direction! This was a thrilling book from cover to cover, I am very interested to read more of her books if they keep with the same exciting plots! It is no surprise that this book has stayed on the New York Bestseller list for quite some time!

Love Irresistibly

Julie James

If you have never heard of the FBI/U.S Attorney Series by Julie James, you should start! I picked up the first story in this series, Something About You, and I have read all four of them within a few weeks! James mixes in a perfect amount of romance, humor and suspense in her books and this is no exception. Her characters are great and keeps me wanting to read more about them every turn of the page!

Second Honeymoon

James Patterson

I have been a fan of James Patterson for many years now. Once his new book came out I immediately wanted to get reading it. I did and could not put it down. As the title suggests it is certainly about honeymooners and then the crazy twists and turns begin from there!  The story struck me as quite frightening seeing as though I just got back from my honeymoon, but it was a crazy, edge of your seat book for sure. Patterson is an author that I read as soon as he releases books, and this was pretty close to my favorite from him in a long time.
