- The Summer Trilogy I just adored this trilogy that starts with The Summer I Turned Pretty. It's a sweet story of a girl growing up, childhood family friends, Summer vacation, and romance. I loved them. It will definitely get you in the mood for the beach.
- The Throne of Glass is a great choice If you feel like some action and romance. The story is full of political intrigue, awesome fighting, and some swoonable boys. It's a fun action filled book with great characters and an interesting story.
- Wake there's a lot of beach and swimming action in this interesting mythology retelling.
- Divergent is one of my all time favorite books. If you haven't made time to read this yet you should. It's a great dystopian with lots of action and interesting ideas. It's not your standard beach book but just line the Hunger Games book it's one of those stories that would be great to read while at the beach.
- Starcrossed is another greek mythology retelling. Much of the story takes place along the waterfront and it's great.
- The Raven Boys - I've raved about this before but the combo of mystery, adventure and cute witty boys makes it a perfect pick for taking with on a relaxing beach outing.
- Percy Jackson or really any of Rick Riordan's books. All three series are fun light hearted read and the Percy books take place over Summer break so it's a perfect book read.
- Soulbound is a fun action filled book if you liked Vampire Academy or have a inkling for some paranormal romance this is a good one that isn't too heavy.
- Along for the Ride is my favorite of the Dessen books that I've read. Sweet contemporary romance perfect for reading on the beach.
- 13 Little Blue Envelops is a lovely story about travel and learning more about yourself. It's a sweet contemporary that hits some tough issues without being too heavy.
