4 Books We’re Looking Forward to Reading on the Beach This Summer

Assortment of books on the beach

Multitasking takes on a much better meaning when you’re out of the office and on our beaches. Because here, working on your tan and flipping through a good book go hand in hand. Consider these four novels that pair perfectly with sunny spots around The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel.

The Last Hobo: A Clueless Detroit Kid Hitchhikes across America the Summer the Seventies Ran Out of Gas (Volume 1)

Hop on a ferry to hitch your own ride to Cayo Costa State Park. Lose yourself in the peace and quiet of your private surroundings. Then get lost all over again in this wild tale that’s based on a true story.

The Light Between Oceans

Now a major motion picture, this drama depicts the lives of a lighthouse keeper, his wife and a child brought to them by fate. It’s best enjoyed on the eastern tip of Sanibel, where the island’s namesake lighthouse has stood for more than a century.

The Chaperone

This page-turner transports you to the Big Apple during the summer of 1922. It makes a fine companion if you find yourself on the west coast of Captiva around sunset. And if you just can’t put the novel down, take it for dinner and drinks along the island’s charming Andy Rosse Lane.

The Fallen Curtain

Fact: It’s much more appealing to read something spooky (and quite sinister) in the bold light of day than it is to read in the pitch-black darkness of your hotel room. So crack open this collection of psychological mysteries among the eerily twisted driftwood trees found at Lovers Key State Park.
