There’s quite literally nothing better than a relaxing (and socially-distanced) week of rest, relaxation, and, most importantly, lots and lots of reading.

Vacation TBRs are something I take very seriously because a great book is my favorite way to spend my vacay time! Here’s what I’m taking with me this week:
BEACH READ BY EMILY HENRY
I splurged and bought a new copy of Beach Read just for this week because I couldn’t wait any longer to get my hands on this story. A enemies(ish)-to-lovers romance that features writing and is set at the beach? I’m sold. Planning to devour this book with a glass of wine in one hand and a bottle of sunscreen in the other.
A SONG BELOW WATER BY BETHANY C. MORROW
Thanks to NetGalley, I’m reading an ARC of A Song Below Water. This beautiful and poignant novel is about two sisters who navigate their identities in a magical-realist version of the US. In this story, Black Lives Matter meets mythology as a young Black woman is accused of being a siren. I’m a few chapters into this book right now and love every minute.
THE BATTLE OF THE LABYRINTH BY RICK RIORDAN
As I work my way through the Percy Jackson books, I’m going to pick up The Battle of the Labyrinth, the fourth book in the series, and continue my reread this week. I love revisiting my middle school favorites and can’t wait to see this series adapted for the screen!
ALEX & ELIZA BY MELISSA DE LA CRUZ
Since Hamilton was released on Disney+, it’s safe to say we’ve all revived our 2016 Hamilton obsession. I think Alex & Eliza is going to be the perfect way to satisfy (lol) my history craving while also enjoying a sweet love story. I’ve got all three ebooks from this series lined up and ready to go on my Kindle, so I’m definitely all set for the week.
What are your favorite kinds of books to read on vacation? Do you have any safe travel plans coming up? If not, how are you beating the heat this summer?

I was hoping to read Beach Read this summer, but since I haven’t moved up in the library line in the 7 weeks since I requested it I may just have to come to terms with reading it in the fall.
I hope you get to read it soon!!
I loved Beach Read!!
Yay that’s so good to hear!! Excited to read it soon 🙂
Sunshine and sweet wine? I’m hooked. I’ve been meaning to read Beach Read for forever, I wish I had a beach house to hide away at while I do!! I hope you enjoy all of these and have a great vacation! ❤️
Omg hiding away at a beach house and reading Beach Read sounds dreamy!! We’re headed to the lake for a week, so at least there’s water 🙂
I loved Emily Henry’s Beach Read so much <3 Highly recommend it!
Yay I can’t wait to read it!
My favourite beach reads / summer reads are either romcom or middle-grade. I like things that are light-hearted to capture the beach vibe. Percy Jackson would be the perfect thing to take to the beach! (Especially since it would also be a re-read for me, and I adore re-reads. Nostalgia and summer vacay, ah, so sweet.)
