Summer Reads for July

Summer has officially started and we’re dropping our Summer Beach Reads for 2022! We’re making waves with summer favorites compiled based on what you’ll be up to this season.

If you’re doing any kind of outdoor activities, take a look into Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr and Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel

  • Cloud Cuckoo Land: A novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world, who find resilience and hope.
  • Sea of Tranquility: A novel about two teens surviving tragedies and learning to cope, while telling a story of humanity across centuries and space.

If you’re going anywhere near water, check out Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid and The Retreat by Sarah Pearse

  • Malibu Rising: Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever.
  • The Retreat: An eco-wellness retreat has opened on an island off the English coast, promising rest and relaxation—but the island itself, known locally as Reaper’s Rock, has a dark past.

If you’re vacationing this summer, look into People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry and The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

  • People We Meet on Vacation: With one week to win back the best friend she might just be in love with, a travel writer plans the trip of a lifetime.
  • The Hotel Nantucket: After a tragic fire in 1922, The Hotel Nantucket descended from a gilded age gem to inevitably an abandoned eyesore, until it’s purchased and renovated top to bottom by a London billionaire.

If you’re planning on catching up with trends, check out Where the Crawdads Singby Delia Owens and Bullet Train by Kotaro Isaka

  • Where the Crawdads Sing: For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl.
  • Bullet Train: Five assassins on a fast-moving bullet train find out their missions have something in common in The Prince, a devious assassin. Why are they all on the same train, and who will make it off alive?
