As much as we love getting lost in a good book, it can be difficult to find time for pleasure reading due to work, errands, and, well, just life.
So the next time you’re at the beach, catch up on that book that’s been sitting on your desk or check out our beach reading list below. We rounded up reads that are perfect for days spent at the beach while you soak in that vitamin D.

“Pretty Girls” by Karin Slaughter
This page-turner is more intense than it seems (borderline disturbing).

But when Claire’s husband is murdered, they start digging through their pasts, including Julia’s.
“All the Missing Girls” by Megan Miranda

Set in the world of fashion and parties, drug addiction and self-sabotage are at the center of this memoir. Written by Cat Marnell, who was the beauty editor of Lucky at 26-years-old, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes peek at what seems like a glamorous life.

Hamptons…need we say more? A single mother goes across the country to spend time in the Hamptons with her new lover, but discovers a whole lot more than she bargained for.
