These magical beach books will whisk your imagination away to a new place this summer.
In my opinion, a great beach read falls into one of three categories:
- A light and breezy beach read that takes place near the ocean or a lake:

- A story that takes place in a foreign land I want to travel to someday
- A dark and magical story that transports my imagination far, far away
When I'm deep into reading my book near the pool, I want to look up from the page and have to blink my eyes for a few moments to remember where I am.
I've read and loved every book on this list. I hope they are just the escape you need this summer.
