One of the things on my summer bucket list is to read more books. My family used to make fun of me because on my summer vacations I’d often go to the library or Barnes and Noble to get some books to read over the summer while most kids did all they could to avoid reading. It’s always been one of my favorite escapes. I’m sharing my Summer Reading List for 2021 below.
And all of the books are linked on Amazon so you can download to your kindle or purchase the actual book if you still like flipping through pages.

Summer Reading List 2021
I read this one last summer in 2 days. Elin Hildebrand is one of my favorite authors for an easy beachy read. There’s been talks that they may be making it into a movie too!
I read all of Judy Blume’s books as a teenager. I read this one back in college and remember it being really good. It’s a story about two girls who are friends during the summer on the Vineyard. It’s on my list for this summer to read again.
this one is on all of the lists for must reads this summer. This thriller is a Reese’s Book Club Pick and I’ve been told that its perfect if you loved Big Little Lies or Little Fires Everywhere.
based on an end of the Summer beach party in Malibu, this book is about dysfunctional family relationships. Many of the reviews on Good Reads say that the characters are extremely well written and will have your emotions all over the place.
A female powered thriller that based on the synopsis reminds me a little of the Stepford Wives or Desperate Housewives.
The Amazon reviews say this book is about female rage, sexuality, and adventure and the characters go to dark places. May not be everyone but sounds thrilling.
This story takes place at a family summer home in Cape Cod where a mother of three comes to a crossroads in her love life forcing her to choose between her husband or her childhood lover.
A new couple moves into a gated community and finds that it may not be all it appears to be. The main character Alice learns that there are some secrets about her home.
Reviewers say this book is like what the ladies of Sex and the City would be like in the social media age. Think new motherhood in Upper East Side.
