Now that June is here, it’s time to start thinking about the beach. I’ve put together five color palettes inspired this summer’s hottest beach reads to get you ready for fun in the sun.

The first color story is inspired by How to Make Herself Agreeable to Everyone by Cameron Russell. It’s a bold memoir that explores who holds the power in an image-obsessed culture, from the model and activist who helped organize the movement to bring equity to fashion.

The 100% cotton striped beach towel pulls all the colors together. The pink Amalfi Umbrella will keep you made in the shade. The Reclining Pillow Lounger will allow you to read your book in comfort. The pink Outdoor Wine Set can keep your alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks cold and safe from breakage.

Everyone on the beach will be jealous that your Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit matches your towel. Protect your feet from the hot sand with the Flip Flops. Carry your book and La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50 in the bright pink Natural Fiber Shopper Bag.

Elin Hilderbrand‘s latest Nantucket book, Swan Song, will be released on June 11, 2024.

You can’t go wrong with blue and white or stripes for summer like this Classic Awning Striped Towel, Beach Umbrella, Teak Beach Chair, and Terrycloth Beach Tote.

The bright blue Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit is perfect for braving the Atlantic Ocean waves while the white rubber Birkenstocks will keep your feet comfortable for the long walk back to the car and the Supergoop! PLAY 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Mist will protect your skin from the sun.

The Nantucket Lighthouse Backgammon Set is the perfect gift if you want to be invited to stay at your friend’s Nantucket house again.

Housemates is about two young housemates who embark on a road trip to discover themselves in this “beautiful novel about art, community and connection” (Rachel Khong) in a fractured America, by the award-winning author of The Third Rainbow Girl.

Profess your love for tennis with the 100% Cotton Tennis Scene Beach Towel and coordinate it with the green Striped Beach Umbrella, green Beach Chair, and Colorful Acrylic Chess and Checkers Game Set.

Add a pop of color to your summer with this purple Cutout Halter One Piece Swimsuit, green Flip Flips and Striped Beach Bag. Don’t forget the Thinksport Kids SPF 50+ Reef Friendly Mineral Sunscreen.

Whether you’re headed to Maine or Marsailles, tuck a copy of The Paris Novel by Ruth Reichl in your bag.

The Lobster Beach Towel and Waterproof Lobster Tote Bag are perfect for a places like Montauk and Martha’s Vineyard.

Add a red striped Beach Umbrella, White Beach Chair, and a Cooler that also doubles as an extra seat.

The blue and white Searsucker Ruched Ruffle One Piece Swimsuit is perfect for a preppy locale. Add a pop of red with the rubber Birkenstocks and don’t forget your La Roche Posay Anthelios UV Hydra Sunscreen SPF 50 

I’ve been enjoying Once Upon a Time: The Captivating Life of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and black would be a great homage to her style.

If she were alive today, I image she would love this black Toteme Beach Towel, Swimsuit, Thong Sandals, and Tote Bag.

I picture her shading her pale skin with a black Umbrella and EltaMD UV Clear Face Sunscreen SPF 46 while sitting in a black and white Sling Chair and playing backgammon with friends on the Onyx Black Backgammon Set.

Happy Summer!
