12 Beach Reads to Get Lost in This Summer


Summer is finally here, and with it comes a wealth of reading opportunities, whether you’re lounging poolside or just sneaking out of the overly air-conditioned office a little early. You could pore over Barthes or Baudrillard, of course, but come on…it’s July! Officially time to unplug and let your brain feast on the very best that the beach-read canon has to offer! (Note: Here, the term “beach read” isn’t used flippantly, but instead celebrates books that—while eminently interesting and beautifully executed in their own right—also pair really well with a sun-warmed towel and an XL-sized iced coffee. Basically, these are the summer books you cancel BBQ plans to finish.)

The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris
