1. Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid 

This is the perfect book to bring to that pool party where you don't know anyone, but you're not about to turn down a free pool, right? 

Once again, Reid delivers a masterful drama with realistic characters and family dynamics, complete with all the summer vibes. Have you seen the cover? 

2. Fear of Flying by Kate Allen

If you're traveling to Europe this summer or looking forward to a trip overseas, this is the book for you! 

Featuring a mess of a young woman overcoming a rough patch in life, a swoonworthy book boyfriend, and all the travel you've been missing out on in the past year. 

3. Don't Make Me Turn This Life Around by Camille Pagan 

This is my go-to recommendation if you're going to a beach house rental this year! This one is heavily focused on a family dynamic (particular parent-child and husband-wife) and I found it inspiring and engaging as there's an approaching tropical storm headed right for the characters while they're dealing with their own internal storm.
