The perfect beach read needs to strike a delicate balance—engaging enough to keep you alert while you lounge by the water (don’t forget the SPF!), but not so intense or long that it becomes stressful to read. If you're going on a beach vacation this summer, pack one of these Health editor-recommended reads in your suitcase for your much-needed day of R&R. There's something for everyone on this list. Whether you’re in the mood for a juicy story about a super-rich family, a former beauty editor's memoir on struggling with addiction, or an epic page-turner about a life on a remote Italian island, we've got you (hard)covered.
