9 New Books With Beachy Covers That Will Make You Feel Like You're By The Ocean

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and you know what that means: soon enough, your social media feed will be filled with photo after photo of your friends living it up at the beach. If you're one of the souls who won't be seaside this holiday, don't worry about missing out, because there are tons of new books with beachy covers that will make you feel like your by the ocean — even if you're really stuck at work.

Everyone knows going to the beach is the quintessential activity of the summer. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the ocean, let alone the time or money to go there. But that doesn't mean they can't enjoy the beach, at least not a fictional one. Whether you're stuck in the breakroom at work or landlocked at home wherever you live, books give you the perfect opportunity to feel the sun on your skin, the sand in your toes, and the waves lapping at your legs. All it takes is a little imagination, and of course, a good story.

No matter where you are this holiday, these nine new books with beachy covers will make you feel like you're seaside — minus the pesky sand and painful sunburn.
