Nothing screams “summer” like a juicy, entertaining beach read. Whether or not you have actual vacation plans, getting lost in a book can make you feel like you’re visiting faraway places and lounging around with your feet buried in the sand. These long, sunny days might be the very best time of year for reading, and thankfully, the best books of summer 2019 do not disappoint. I’m ready to stretch out on a beach towel (or in my bed, honestly) and dive straight into these intriguing narratives.
Books have this amazing ability to bring us into the lives of their characters, which lets us experience the world through a whole new perspective. You don’t have to be a pro at real-life love to enjoy a dreamy romance in a novel. But depending on your relationship status, you might be looking for different things in your go-to summer read. If you’re happily in love and want to revel in your feelings, you book choice won’t be quite the same as someone who needs an escape from their dating woes. But rest assured that there’s a book out there calling your name, no matter what your love life looks like. And with all these titles coming out in spring and summer 2019, they’re hot off the press for you to read and enjoy.
