Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

One of the hottest books out this summer, Malibu Rising is set around the storyline of four famous siblings in 1983 who throw an epic party to celebrate the end of summer, that becomes an unforgettable night for their family: the night where they have to choose what they will keep from their parents and what they will leave behind.

The Islanders by Mary Alice Monroe with Angela May

By Charleston’s own Mary Alice Monroe, The Islanders is her newest book and her first book for middle grade readers. As three kids bond over the summer on Dewees Island, they get put on a mandatory patrol to help the Island Turtle Team protect the local loggerhead sea turtle nests. Will they be able to save the turtles and protect the island, while dealing with their own family struggles? 

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars has been one of the most talked about beach and pool-side reads on social media over the past two years. In this modern, sophisticated suspense novel, Cadence Sinclair Eastman has been through quite an ordeal from an accident . . . that she can’t remember. As she finally returns to her family’s private island for the summer, she has to face her past and try to piece together what no one will tell her about the incident that changed all their lives forever.

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

Read it before it hits the small screen! One of Us is Lying is the first book in the popular series of the same name that centers around five students and what happens when they walk into detention as strangers, and then only four walk out alive. This is the perfect summer read to prepare for the new TV series based off of the book coming to the new Peacock streaming platform in 2022.
