5 Summer Reads for When It’s Too Hot to Actually be at the Beach

July 3, 2018 by Andrea

Even when the weather makes it too unbearable -- and too much of a crisis risk -- to bask in a chair seaside, you can still enjoy all the latest beach reads from the comfort of your air conditioning. Put your meditation app on calming beach waves, and settle in with a mocktail and one of these page-turners: 

1) Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, Barnes & Noble ($12.19)
If you love all things Octavia Butler, you've got to grab your copy of Tomi Adeyemi's debut novel. It follows the character Zélie Adebola, as she seeks to avenge the death of her mother and restore magic to her homeland.

2) Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell, Barnes & Noble ($19.45)
This one goes out to all the mystery/thriller lovers out there. A tale of a mother's search for her long-missing daughter, this plot-twisty novel is a must-have for your summer reads list.

3) An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, Books-A-Million ($17.24)
Of course, no summer reads list is quite complete without at least one Oprah's Book Club pick. And in this one, two newlyweds have their lives changed in an instant when one of them is sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. He returns home five years later, but can he and his wife really just pick up where they left off?

4) Well, That Escalated Quickly by Franchesca Ramsey, Target ($22.90)
A self-proclaimed "accidental activist," Franchesca uses humor to discuss everything from race to gender to social justice to identity and everything in between.

5) The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, Barnes & Noble ($9.89)
Lo thought a dream assignment aboard a luxury cruise ship would be just what she needed to level up at the travel magazine where she works. But when a woman on board goes missing -- and all that surrounds her is water -- Lo's dream quickly turns into a nightmare.
