The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

“Look, I get it. A lot of people have read this book already. There are seven books in the series, though, which is great for long travel times and planting yourself on the beach. One of the highest-selling books in history, the stories of Harry, Ron and Hermione and their time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a page-turner with many twists and turns, adventures, and good versus evil. Lose yourself this summer in the story of the Boy Who Lived!” – Nikki, Funjet Insider


The Cormoran Strike Mystery Series by Robert Galbraith

“Few things go together as well as a dark mystery book and a sunny beach day. Cormoran Strike is the eponymous character of a series of crime fiction books written by British author J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The story chronicles the many cases of private investigator Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott.” – Tony, Funjet Insider  

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

“This is one of my favorite novels, due to its unique story. The Goldfinch is a painting by a famous Dutch artist, (Carel Fabritius), and this piece of artwork, guides the destiny of Theo, through a tragic event that occurs when he is thirteen. Follow Theo through his coming of age, young adult hood, you will find yourself wanting only the best for him… truly the best book you will ever read!” – Mickelle, Funjet Insider

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (unabridged)  

“This is my desert island book. Revenge, romance, history, suspense, prison time and buried treasure. This book has it all. Plus, once you get to the end, you can start it all over again because it’s so long, lol.” – Kelsey, Funjet Insider

Now you only need the beach to read on, and we’ve got you covered.
