Beachy Reads – From Hot to Heartfelt
I have many many books I am looking forward to in 2017. As we head into the summer, I pared down my list a little to books that just released (or will be soon).
Summer 2017 – here I come!

Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr
Published April 4th 2017
In Gem & Dixie, a young girl with a less-than-ideal upbringing, is faced with an adventure that will bring her clarity. Heart-tugging relationships and not-so-clear answers… Yes, I think I will like this one.
The Go- Between by Veronica Chambers
Published May 9th 2017
“Jane The Virgin fan will love this one.” Yup, that is me. Her mother is a glamorous telenovela actress. Her father is the go-to voice-over talent for blockbuster films. When her mother gets a role of a maid in L.A., things change.
Flame In The Mist by Renee Ahdiehn
Published May 16th 2017
The author that wrote one of my all-time favorite books, The Wrath and The Dawn, released her second series. This is all I need to know. (If you haven’t fell in love with The Wrath and The Dawn yet, you can read my gushing review here)
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Published May 30th 2017
A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy told in alternating perspectives about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married. I see this book all over with raving reviews and just need to pick it up already.
Once And For All by Sarah Dessen
Published June 6th 2017
This one is automatically going on my summer 2017 list ’cause it’s Sarah Dessen. Within, the daughter of wedding planner, cynical of happily-ever-afters, might have met the one. Sounds pretty good!
Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee
Expected publication: August 29th 2017
Dazzling Heights is the second book after The Thousandth Floor. (If you haven’t read it yet, you can find my review here where I continually say how much I can’t wait to pick up the sequel.) This book comes out later in the summer but I HAVE to pick it up upon its release.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Expected publication: June 13th 2017
I see this title everywhere! People will soon be gushing over the contents because it is one Book of the Month pick for June. Even though I’m not subscribed, I have to get my hands on this one. Within, Evelyn Hugo is an iconic film actress and decides now is the time to tell her story of her pursuits to the top, her seven husbands, and all the scandal in between.
Love Me Again by Jaci Burton
Published May 2nd 2017
Mainly on my list ’cause it’s Jaci Burton. And her books can get a bit, well, physical. A perfect-for-the-beach paperback. Plus, it is always good to be back in Hope (this is book #7).
It Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson
Published May 9th 2017
If the word “Hamptons” is in the title, it will probably be a good guilty-indulgence. Within, Katie becomes immersed in the culture and, of course, everything is not as it seems.
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Published August 2nd 2016
Colleen Hoover is queen. She just had a cover reveal of her newest book, Without Merit, which comes out after summer of 2017. So I technically I won’t get my hands on it until summer is over. Thus, I will savor her 2016 release: It Ends With Us.
I am going to stop right there…
…because I know that it is inevitable more books will be added on as the summer continues.
Let me know what books you plan on reading in the summer of 2017!
