Best Summer Books 2020

Reno blogger, Ashley Zeal, from Two Peas in a Prada shares her list of the best summer books out this year. No beach bag is complete without one of these books!

I am a summer reading junkie! Like, big time. Always have been. Just last week, we were laughing about how we read the entire Twilight series in less than a week while laying in the pool. Now, we hide in the shade, but I am still obsessed with reading all of the things! There are some amazing books that came out this year – a lot I have read already, some aren’t out yet, and some I have purchased and are waiting for me in my queue. Let me know if you read any and how you like them!

Summer Books 2020

The Lies that Bind 

by Emily Giffin


I love love love, Emily Giffin, and this book did not disappoint.


28 Summers

by Elin Hildebrand


Elin is my girl, I am her biggest fan. We read her books every single summer and winter, and this one was SO good!


Girls of Summer

by Nancy Thayer



Nancy Thayer is another summer staple for me! This book was the perfect beach read!


We’re Going to Need More Wine

by Gabrielle Union



Inspired to read more books by black voices, I really wanted to read this memoir. I got it on audible because I love her voice. I listened to all 8 hours within two days




Summer Longing

by Jamie Brenner


I thought a book about an abandoned baby would be a little too sensitive for me to read right now, but it was totally fine and heartwarming!


Hello Summer

by Mary Kay Andrews


I read her books every single summer, and I always love them! A big-city journalist loses her job and has to return home to her small town where she grew up and ends up getting the lead on a major political scandal for her family’s run local paper! This is perfect to read by the pool. Not too serious, but just juicy enough!


Big Summer

by Jennifer Weiner


It pains me to say that I was not the biggest fan of her last book, but this one was so good! It’s about a plus-size influencer (probably why I liked it so much), but also has a thriller aspect to it, which is super different for her! I really enjoyed this!


Feels Like Falling

by Kristy Woodsen Harvey


This was such a cute book about friendship and turned out to be way different than what I thought it was going to be when I started it. I am a huge fan of her writing and this was a super fun and easy beach read!


The Wife Stalker 

by Liv Constantine


I’m not joking when I say that I did not put this book down. I read it from start to finish in one sitting. It is THAT good. The ending is wild – this is the best book I’ve read in a long time. I don’t want to give too much away but you have to read it!

One Perfect Summer

by Brenda Novak


I was super interested in this book because it takes place in Lake Tahoe! Three women find out they’re sisters thanks to 23 & Me – and they try to unravel how exactly that happened. Loved it!


On Ocean Boulevard

by Mary Alice Monroe


This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone novel. I always read her books and this one was the perfect beach read!
