The Bookish Gear You Need to be Ready for Summer

For many people, June marks the coming of summer: endless days at the beach or pool, and lots of sunshine. For my fellow Southern Floridians, it means that, but also hurricane season. So while we’re able to get some snatches of sun, let’s at least be equipped with all the rad bookish gear we can find, yeah?

First thing’s first: everyone needs a handy beach tote. This one sports a message I wholly agree with: “All I need is the beach and a book.”


Wonder Woman sunglasses are the perfect accessory for a summer that welcomed DC’s best superhero movie.

This is seriously my new favorite beach towel. I don’t even mind that she’s lying down in her ball gown to read, because part of me loves the thought that she’d take a break from a party to hang with some books and tea.

Keeping your drink nice and cool is important, too! Once your beverage of choice is out of the cooler, slip on a little coozie.

Of course, fun in the sun is usually nice in a swim suit! Check out this adorable Unbeatable Squirrel Girl one piece by Black Milk Clothing.

That’s about it for my personal beach essentials, besides books and snacks. What else do you usually take with you for a day in the sun?
