BOOKS YOU CAN READ ON THE BEACH (AND NOT BE EMBARRASSED BY)

  1. The Girl on the Train
    Everybody's doing it, y'all.
  2. The Knockoff
    It's just too good to say no.
  3. Station Eleven
    So compulsively readable but HEY she was a National Book Award finalist so that means serious literary clout kids. Oh and it's in paperback soon!
  4. The Shell Collector
    Stories by this year's Pulitzer winner. They're mostly about the sea or nature so that's a pretty quality beach read, right?
  5. Crazy Rich Asians
    You're going to the Hamptons so you'll just want to know how other rich people do it, y'know?
  6. Wolf in White Van
    The Mountain Goats are cool.
  7. Redeployment
    NBA Winner but mostly now in paperback.
