We are heading to Cape Cod this summer.

I. Can’t. Wait.

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve watched the sun rise over the ocean and heard the waves break against the shore and wiggled my toes in the sand.

I’m going to eat lobster.

I’m going to wear my new seersucker swimsuit on the beach.

I’m going to find shells to make a clock.

And I’m going to read.

In an effort to find the best books to come along on my seersucker clockmaking summer, I asked for recommendations over on Instagram.

There were so many recommendations that poured in. So many books and not enough summer. So to ensure maximum reading satisfaction, I’ve compiled a list of the highest recommended books from readers (along with a few books I’ve read and loved).

Also, if you listen to audiobooks, Audible is having an amazing sign-up deal right now for Prime Members for 53% off for the first four months (basically this summer).

You can see it here.

And now, in no particular order are the 10 of the best beach reads for 2021 and a fun giveaway from one of my favorite authors (and friend) Mary Kay Andrews.

15 of the best beach reads for 2021

(each book is linked below on Amazon and you can also find all the books in my Amazon store here)

1. The Midnight Library

The Midnight Library has almost 85,000 reviews on Amazon.

It’s a story about choices. Somewhere on the edge of the galaxy, there’s a library. The library is full of books that tell the stories of people’s lives—with different endings. Some are stories of their life as they know it. Some are stories of their life that could have been.

Nora Seed is faced with which story to choose.

And what makes life worth the living after all.

(total aside: I can’t WAIT to read this.)

2. The Vineyard At the Painted Moon

At its heart–this book is about courage and friendship and discovering the you that was there all along. The Vineyard At the Painted Moon (I’ve read other books by Susan Mallery and loved them) introduces us to Mackenzie Dienes. She seems to have the perfect life.

Perfect job. Perfect husband. Perfect family.

And then?

One day it’s over.

Picking up the pieces is one of the hardest things she’s ever done—will she have the courage to go after her dreams and find a life full of more joy and fulfillment than she can even imagine.

On my list. 🙂

3. The Perfect Couple

This was one of our book club reads and IT IS SO GOOD.

The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand is a page-turner.

I love a book that you can’t figure out the ending until it surprises you in the end.

It’s a mystery that takes place at a wedding on Nantucket. The bride-to-be is discovered dead and everyone is a suspect.

Spoiler alert. It’s NOT who you think it is.

This book is such a good read.

4. The Nightingale

I’ve read other books by Kristen Hannah, but I’d never heard of The Nightingale until it was recommended by so many readers.

And it has almost 70,000 reviews on Amazon.

It looks amazing. I love a historical drama and this one is set against the backdrop of WWII and Germany’s invasion of France.

It’s the story of two sisters with romance and struggle and sometimes almost impossible choices.

I’m reading this next.

5. Where the Crawdads Sing

If you can only add one book to your beach this summer?

Make it this one.

A reader recommended this to me last year and it does NOT disappoint.

Where the Crawdads Sing is so beautifully written and tells the story of survival and love and beauty in the midst of poverty and loss.

It will make you cheer and cry and wish it would never end.

6. The Giver of the Stars

I saw the movie Me Before You based on the book written by this author so I was intrigued when readers recommended The Giver of the Stars.

It’s another historical drama about a team of women who are part of the team helping to deliver Eleanor Roosevelt’s traveling library.

It’s the story of the challenges they face on the journey and the love they discover and the challenges of the land they travel.

I loved her other story, so I’m excited to read this one.

7. A Gentleman in Moscow

Almost 33,000 reviews on Amazon and TONS of reader recommendations can’t be wrong.

A Gentleman in Moscow looks so interesting because it’s based on the story of an aristocrat who is sentenced to house arrest in the attic of the Metropol hotel.

The characters and the scenery are incredible as the story unfolds during this tumultuous time in Russian history.

It’s also about to be made into a television series.

8. Edenbrooke

Edenbrooke has all the things that I love.

England.

Romance.

The heir to a fortune.

And a heroine with a heart of gold.

9. Under the Southern Sky

Kristy Woodson Harvey is a sweet friend of mine and I’ve been cheering her on from her very first book.

She’s witty and funny and I always want to be best friends with all her main characters.

And Under the Southern Sky is no exception.

Reading the story of Amelia and Parker is so endearing and so sweet. Parker is a widower and Amelia is a journalist researching the biggest story of her career.

I would be BEST friends with her.

Just like all of Kristy’s characters. GET THIS BOOK. It will make your summer so much happier.

10. The Newcomer

I have read zillions of books from Mary Kay Andrews.

They have kept me company on many summer beaches.

Her newest book, The Newcomer, is one of my new favorites.

It’s about a fashionable New Yorker who is on the run fearing for her life. She finds refuge (and please act surprised) romance at the Murmuring Surf Hotel.

It’s such a good book from the Queen of the Beach Reads.

And in AMAZING NEWS?

She wants to give away a copy of The Newcomer to one of you!!!!!!

Simply comment below with your favorite Mary Kay Andrews book (or another beach read you love) and I’ll draw one name by random number.

PS I hope you enjoyed this list. Each book is linked in the description on Amazon and you can also find all the books in my Amazon store here.

Also, if you listen to audiobooks, Audible is having an amazing sign-up deal right now for Prime Members for 53% off for the first four months (basically this summer).

happy summer reading

    My last beach read was “Glory Road” by Lauren K. Denton, and on audio! So Good! It was the first I’d read if her - I usually go for straight romance or chick lit, but this women’s fiction novel grabbed me and wouldn’t let go! Lol! I loved being able to lie in the sun with my eyes closed and just LISTEN! All of your recommendations sound amazing! Mary Kay’s, especially!

    You’re coming to the Cape! How wonderful! I’m a native Cape Codder and still live here. Reach out if you need any recommendations for places to go, things to do, places to eat, etc. the Cape is going to by a very busy place this summer. My beach read every summer is the Mitford series by Jan Karon. I reread it every summer. The characters feel like family.

    1. Image for Ann C Ann C

      Niki- I love the Mitford series. Helped get me thru the first year after my husband passed. I need to read them again!

    2. Image for Carol Carol

      Hi Niki, Just read your comment and would love to be in touch when we are getting up to the Cape to get your recommendations. If you don't mind, please send me your contact info. here is my email cazzie52@gmail.com. You are a lucky girl to live on the Cape. Thanks, Ca rol

  22. Image for Terri Herman Terri Herman

    Read “Gentleman” for my book club. Told my son it was like reading a Russian cookbook with wine pairings 😂 but it wrapped up nicely. My fav beach read is the classic: To Kill A Mockingbird. Read it about 10 times. Have a great trip!

  23. Image for Ann Coombe Ann Coombe

    What GREAT suggestions! Thanks. I am going to pick up Mary Kay Andrews book for sure! I loved Carnegie Maid. Such an interesting book. Sounds like you enjoy historical fiction (as do I). Enjoy! Have a great summer!

  24. Image for STEPHANIE MUDD CARRICO STEPHANIE MUDD CARRICO

    Your list is amazing....Have read a few of them and am adding some other to my TBR list. I love summer reading...I don't often get to the beach from central Kentucky but I enjoy a glass of lemonade and a swing in the shade with a good book. Thanks for sharing these titles and a chance to win a great book.

  25. Image for Lois Van Leuven Lois Van Leuven

    There is no place like the beach. We live only 4 miles away from Anna Maria Island. You would think we would get there often, but we don't. Traffic!!!! We are meeting our daughter and her family at Virginia Beach in July. A book that I will take with me will be from Debbie Newcomer. I can't wait to read some from your list as well. They all sound so interesting.

    1. Image for Paula Paula

      Where the Crawdads Sing and Educated are two of my favorites. The Glass Castle is my all time favorite and an amazing read if you liked Where the Crawdads Sing and Educated.

  26. Image for Jayne McLeod Jayne McLeod

    I must say .... I just love books and reading in general !!. I am just in the middle of reading The perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand (love her books) and am going to go out an snatch a copy of Vineyard at the Painted Moon too. I so enjoy Susan Mallery's work...How exciting for the chance to win a great book, fun, fun, fun. Thank you. I do have a question though .... does anyone else ever buy a book because of the cover ?? Enjoy the Sonshine ! Jayne

    1. Image for Kris Kris

      I agree! After reading that one, all other WWII novels seem to pale in comparison. I have read many of the books on KariAnne's list and while they were moderately interesting, I can't say I loved them as much as other readers seem to have. Anyway .... I just finished The Last Exiles by Ann Shin and enjoyed it. It's a novel set in North Korea and I enjoyed reading about a place/culture that is unfamiliar to me. Lisa Wingate's book Before We Were Yours was a good read. I liked The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson better than The Giver of Stars (both were about traveling librarians in the mountains). I have enjoyed most books by Marie Benedict who writes historical fiction based on fact about different women--The Only Woman in the Room is based on Hedy Lamarr and was fascinating. I discovered the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear during the pandemic--you need to read the first novel (called Maise Dobbs) to get the back story but after that you can skip around in the series. Can you tell I enjoy reading???

      1. Image for Missy Mangum Missy Mangum

        Ohhhh, we need to be a in book club together! Have you read Charles Todd's Inspector Rutledge series? If you love Maisie Dobbs, I hope you love this series too. Saddest, but best written story I love is The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. Two boxes of kleenexes.

    This year we are actually moving to a small beach town in north Florida. The kind of place in many of Mary Kay Andrews’ books. I’m saving Sunset Beach for the porch swing I’m going to have!

    1. Image for Carol Carol

      Karen, We are 68 year old couple and thinking about a move, if you are happy with your new town please drop me a line. Want to choose a place where the kids and grandkids would like to come visit. cazzie52@gmail.com Good Luck on your move and hope you love your new home!

  28. Image for Rose Rose

    Loved the Where the Crawdads Sings ,,a great beach read. Next read is The Nightingale followed by A Gentleman in Moscow..Have an enjoyable summer enjoy the beach and gorgeous bathing suit .

  29. Image for Joan Joan

    You have a great list above. I have enjoyed a number of Kristin Hannah's books, including The Nightengale; also Where the Crawdads Sing, and The Giver of Stars. They are all wonderful reads. I would also like to recommend Lisa Wingate's, The Book of Lost Friends. I mostly enjoy historical fiction, however right now, I'm having fun reading Canadien author Louise Penny's mysteries. I am on her sixth book in the series. They are delightful!

  30. Image for CB CB

    After a very rough season of intensive in-home caregiving, plus a death and attempted suicide in the family, my husband and I took a month's sabbatical in April and stayed in a little cottage on 7 acres of farmland in southern Virginia. We did as much of nothing as we possibly could. One of our favorite "nothing" activities was to sit on the porch rocking chairs, watch the resident geese with their six newborn goslings, and read. My favorite read of the month was A Man called Ove by Fredrik Backman.

  31. Image for Jolyn Jolyn

    I'm not sure it is my favorite Mary Kay Andrews book, but it sure is my favorite title of all her books: Hissy Fit. We can all relate to a good hissy fit every now and again! And, CAPE COD!?! Wowza! Have a fabulous time and tell us ALL ABOUT IT! I simply cannot wait for the movie rendition of Where the Crawdads Sing. I hope we are not disappointed.

  32. Image for Carrie Davis Carrie Davis

    You turned me onto “Where the Crawdads sing” and I’ve loved any recommendations since! I look forward to reading all on this list- starting with Mary Kay. I’m not sure what is better; discovering a new author that everyone else loves, or being the one recommending!!! Thank you!!! Safe travels to Cape Cod and you know I’ll be waiting for those stories❤️

  33. Image for Tammy Charlesworth Tammy Charlesworth

    My daughters and I love to read. I love anything Nicholas Sparks or Jane Austen. I would love to win Mary Kay’s book and pass it on to each of my girls. Thank you!

  34. Image for Michelle Kay Michelle Kay

    So many good books. A few of my favorites were Where the Crawdads Sing and The Nightingale. I would love to read a book by your friend Mary Kay.

  35. Image for DeMarie Ingraham DeMarie Ingraham

    Love Mary Kay’s books. Hard to pick one, but loved The Fixer Upper, of course! And thank you for all the reading suggestions.

  36. Image for Kathy McAdory Kathy McAdory

    Not Mary Kay Andrew’s BUT Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a fave of mine to read when I’m relaxing by the pool or on the beach! This torrid tale of Savannah is a must read.

  37. Image for Deda Bradley Deda Bradley

    I read a book not long ago that will stay with me forever. It's not necessarily a beach read, more like a cool rainy weekend read. The name is Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly and it is fiction but based on a true story. You will have many, many feelings after you read this book.

  38. Image for Brenda Brenda

    Here’s a book for you “ The Last of the moon girls” by Barbara Davis just try to put it down. It takes you on a rollercoaster, romance, a long lost love, murder, investigation trying to clear a grandmother with special powers and that’s just a few of the highlights. I didn’t want it to end.

  39. Image for Lynn Lynn

    You need to add another Southern writer: Mary Alice Monroe! Any and every book is wonderful and are definitely beach books. She not only entertains you with beautifully written stories, but you learn so much about sea creatures. Her books are filled with teaching you about dolphins, and loggerhead turtles especially. Mary Alice is such a sweet and down to earth lady from Isle of Palms, SC.

    1. Image for Lynn Lynn

      I also meant to reply about MKA. You should read some of her first books under her real name, Kathy Hogan Trocheck ( They are now reprinting them under MKA). Most take place in and around Atlanta, so since I am a native Atlantan, I can picture where they all take place! But all of hers are great reads - very ente rtaining!

  40. Image for Ann C Ann C

    This TenderLand by William Kent Krueger is a must read for anyone who loved Where The CRAWDADS Sing. I try to read all the time & love book recommendations. Thank you KariAnne & all the commenters with their suggestions. My most recent read was Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey. Easy read like a visit with a new friend. Congrats on going to Cape Cod! Love the east coast. Enjoy!

  41. Image for Michele Michele

    There's not one Mary Kay Andrews book that isn't one of my favorites, but for this I think I'll have to say Deep Dish. :-)

  42. Image for Lynette Lange Lynette Lange

    I have read many of the books you suggest and agree with all except A Gentleman in Moscow. I thought it was too heavy for a breezy day at the beach or around a pool. Last summer I read and loved Elin Hilderbrand's 28 Summers. Another book I really enjoyed while on vacation in Carlsbad, California was The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hill by Robert Dugone. I'll start on your book list suggestions tomorrow!

  43. Image for Laura Harrie Laura Harrie

    Karianne, I haven’t read anything by Mary Kay Andrews, so I will be going shopping for her books. I would live to win her newest book, sounds so interesting!

  44. Image for GeNell GeNell

    🌿I have read probably all of her books, but I have not purchased this one yet. Leaving for Sanibel Island soon and definitely need it to take along. I love her house on Tybee Island too🏝

  45. Image for Gail Holt Gail Holt

    Love Louise Penny. And have read 4 of the books on the list. Jotted down names of others and other authors. Have never read anything by Mary Kay Andrews, so I'm looking forward to a new (to me) writer.

  46. Image for Meta Meta

    Kristy Woodson Harvey is one of my favorites! I have read every one of her books. She doesn’t write fast enough! I’m on a Libby waiting list for THE NEWCOMER! I think they said I would get it in a couple of years! 😏Maybe I’ll just buy it!

  47. Image for Diane Haas Diane Haas

    I have read many of Mary Kay Andrews books, and loved every one of them! It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I would say High Tide Club.

  48. Image for Marty Marty

    The Mitford series all.day.long! Funny and touching and a new family to love. Jan Karon is the best! Has anyone made the orange marmalade cake?!?

  49. Image for Monica Monica

    I have never read MKA although I have purchased many of her books for my daughter. Just purchased The Newcomer for her birthday next week; maybe time I borrowed a few of them. Thanks for the list!

  50. Image for beverly e beverly e

    I would love to read "Where the Crawdads Sing". The only MKA book I've read is Savannah Blues, and I enjoyed it as light summer reading.

  51. Image for Lisa Ricardo Lisa Ricardo

    Love MKA!! I read her often .... loved Fixer Upper.... am currently reading the Weekenders ............ Looking forward to reading the Newcomer 🥰 Can’t wait to read my way through your recommendation list !! Hope I win the book.... heading to Seattle in a few weeks and then to Ormond Beach FL 🌴🥂

  52. Image for Pamela Griner Pamela Griner

    I loved the audible version of "Hissy Fit." Her books are so entertaining. I can't imagine a life without books.

  53. Image for Terri Driggers Terri Driggers

    Rachel Hauck.... Love love her books...... Sweet Caroline, Love starts with Elle, Dining with Joy ( these 3 are a series and they are incredible)!!!!!!... And of course Mary Kay Andrews has incredible reads as well!!!!!!

    I love ❤️ all of Mary Kay Andrews books... they are a great way to escape reality... Beach 🏖 Town is one I enjoyed... along with all her others! 😂

    I've been having fun reading my 12-year-old granddaughter's favorite books she passes on to me and her also-avid-reader cousin (10-year=old other granddaughter), She loves the role of librarian! I've really enjoyed a true story,, "I'll Always Write Back", about a boy from Zimbabwe and an American girl who started as pen pals for a class project and continued for years, and the amazing changes in their lives as a result. And "Love and Gelato", light young adult reading, but fun.

  56. Image for Anita L Jackson Anita L Jackson

    O gosh, an older one that is So quick read. - The Old Man & the Sea by Ernest Hemingway--super quick read...but a good, sit back and relax read - The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

  57. Image for Karen Karen

    Sunset Beach , I love all of her books and havent read the latest yet. This was a very hard question for me. Akin to asking Paula Dee what her favorite butter is! Hope you have a great time at the beach .

  58. Image for Gail Gail

    Because I used to live in Cape Cod, so anything about the beach by Mary Kay Andrew's, summer or winter. I left my heart there!

  59. Image for Ann in Atlanta Ann in Atlanta

    Way back when, KHT and I were in a writers group together and she is lovely and so talented. I’ve never been more tickled for someone I know to find such success as MKA. Her books are so fun to read! Look forward to this new one. And thank you for the list - will add the ones I haven’t read to my bookshelf! Happy summer☀️

  60. Image for Maggie Wallem Rowe Maggie Wallem Rowe

    PS - My husband and I raised our kids on Cape Cod! We pastored a church in Osterville near Hyannis for many years, and the kids grew up there. They say it was a fairytale childhood. We did our baptisms in Nantucket Sound. :)

  61. Image for Dawn M DeMulling Dawn M DeMulling

    I love all of the Mary Kay Andrews books. My first book I read was Fixer Upper, so I will pick that. I can't really choose. I like them all.

  62. Image for Kimberly Kimberly

    Crawdads is fabulous when you listen to it! The marsh girl's dialect is so good! I would love a copy of a new book - thank you!

  63. Image for Kristi Castanette Kristi Castanette

    To be honest, I haven’t read any of Mary Kay Andrews’ books. However, I would love to start with the Newcomer! Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  64. Image for Carolyn Carolyn

    Thanks for the booklist. Have read several of them and agree they are good. Love Mary Kay Andrews!!!! Now I am reading and highly recommend Jan Moran’s series of Seabreeze Inn. Thanks for being so generous.

  65. Image for JUDY SOLLIE JUDY SOLLIE

    I have been a MKA fan ever since I read Savannah Blues, but I think Hissy Fit is my favorite! I'm a Mississippi-raised southern girl (now grandma) who has lived in Tennessee, Alabama, and now Georgia, and I love a good southern book!

  66. Image for Erin Kaven Erin Kaven

    Love Mary Kay Andrews. The first book I read of hers was Blu Christmas. Love love Savannah too. Really, you can’t go wrong with anything written by her….Fixer Upper, Savannah Blues, Hissy Fit! Good stuff.

  67. Image for Debbie Martin Debbie Martin

    I started with savannah Blue also but fixer upper was a favorite! Would love to read her new book. Thanks!

  68. Image for Melinda Parkman Melinda Parkman

    I loved Hissy Fit. But I really loved The Fixer Upper. But I really, really loved Savannah Blues. So many good characters.

  69. Image for LISA DUMAS GANTT LISA DUMAS GANTT

    Love all the MKA books I have read and can't wait to read the Newcomer but hands down my favorite so far is Little Bitty Lies!

  70. Image for Elizabeth Elizabeth

    Sunset Beach!! It was one of my favorite beach reads last summer. I passed it on to my bestie and now she is enjoying it.
