Summer SHOULD Reads
Here are some of the books I recommend for reading on the beach, two of which I read already. All of these books can be put into a beach bag because their size is relatively light, and text is easy to read.
"The Vacationers" by Emma Straub is a novel about family drama and the sometimes complicated relationships, even though everything might seem perfect.
"Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter ping-pings between two summer stories, one in Italy and the other in Hollywood.
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Shakespeare is a fun and clever way of keeping the level of your language up to the grammatical level as well as looking as the smartest person on the beach.
Enjoy reading on the beach instead of looking at the phone, to keep your sanity in place and your intellect in tact.
