9 Books We're Toting To The Beach This Summer (& Outfits To Match)

A day at the beach (or even just at home on the couch) isn't complete without a good book by our side. For some of us, it's the only quality time we have to spend reading something that isn't work or news-related. Sad, we know, but that's exactly why we never mind multitasking during our downtime with a heavy new paperback.
So, get ready to lather on the sunscreen and dig those toes into the sand, because R29's Sartorial Book Club is back. And, we've got the lowdown on nine can't-put-'em-down picks, courtesy of our staff. Don't worry, we made sure to choose selections that aren't too heavy — lest you find yourself sobbing straight through your protective SPF shield. The best part? We went ahead and paired outfits to each of these page-turners for a completely novel look. Yep, we've got the whole summer-reading thing down to a science.
