Summer is in full swing and there’s nothing like heading to the beach — or the park — sitting by the water, contemplating the view, grabbing a good book and just immersing ourselves in it. That’s why we’re throwing out some ideas for the perfect summer novels.

We are adhering to “beach reads” rules though: most of the titles here are either total page-turners or grant some instant gratification — or both.
