“The beach book is easily digestible, designed to be guzzled down from a cramped airline seat or reclining poolside chair. Comforting, happy endings are assured; every couple who ought to end up walking into the sunset together does (although the best of the genre have you doubting that destiny in the middle chapters.) They’re not the novels you proudly display on your shelves so that guests may marvel at your intellectual prowess, but frankly, it’s too hot out for Tolstoy.” - Kim Rollins
