The Best Books of Summer 2019

Whether lounging on the beach or sitting poolside, there's no better company on vacation than a good book. We share what's in our reading each month during Book Club, but these are the books we are most looking forward to packing in our beach bags this Summer.

Summer Break is well under way, but there is still lots more summer in everyone's future. We've received a ton of messages asking what our recommendations are so we thought we would put them in one nice and tidy post. 

From psychological thrillers to contemporary romances these are the beach worthy reads you'll want to download on your Kindle and pack in your suitcase this summer.

The Best Books of Summer 2019


When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton
When We Left Cuba is the spicy follow up to last year's Next Year in Havanna (an instant bestseller and a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick).

Waiting for Tom Hanks is a the feel-good romance of the season. If you love romantic comedies, you'll love following Annie Cassidy on her search for the perfect romance. And by that she means in the form of Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle

That mom/best friend duo you see across Facebook lay down their self deprecating humor in a hysterical hard copy. Get ready for messy homes, real life mom moments and side splitting laughs.

Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine
Last Time I Saw You looks to be the addictive, can't put down at night book of the summer. As an heiress to a large fortune, wife to the perfect husband, mom to an adorable daughter, a great career, and a beautiful home, Dr. Kate English seems to have it all. Until the brutal murder of her own mother and an ominous text letting her know someone is out to get her. If Constantine's The Last Mrs. Parrish is any indicator, we'll be losing lots of sleep over this one.

Summer of '69 by Elin Hilderbrand
The queen of beach reads takes us back to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard for Summer of '69. Doing something a little different for her style, Hilderbrand gives us a little historical fiction for our summer beachside reading.

In The Two Lila Bennetts we see what happens when one decision has the ability to send you down two different paths. In one life Lila Bennett she's kidnapped by a mysterious stranger. In another life she walks free. (Now we're intrigued...)

The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams
A Hundred Summers tops both of our all-time reading lists, and many of Williams' novels go down as some of our favorites. We can't wait to have our toes in the sand, a drink in hand, and dig into her latest novel, The Golden Hour. This one takes us back to 1941 and the high society of the Bahamas. Lulu is sent by her magazine to investigate the Governor and finds herself smack dab in a murder mystery.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
If you are looking for a light, fun, laugh out loud beach read, then The Unhoneymooners is just what you need. Olive braces for the wedding she's been dreading. Her twin's wedding. The one that officially ties her to her arch enemy and future brother-in-law. After the entire wedding comes down with an illness she finds herself on her twin's dream honeymoon with "the enemy". With one hilarious snafu after another this beach read will make you feel less guilty about about skipping your ab workout on vacation. (see our full review here.)

Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner always give us all the feels in her novels, and her latest - Mrs. Everything - is no exception. Following two sisters growing up in Detroit during the 1950's, you are taken on a tale of how siblings growing up in the same household can have two different dreams, perspectives, and paths in life.
