Good summer and beach reads..

I'm going on vacation in Malibu (I know!!!) in the summer. My mom said we aren't going to be doing a lot and I need a few books to read. So, I was wondering, what books are good summer and beach reads? If you would like, you can look at my profile to see what books I've already read. The sky is the limit! Okaayy, thank you!!!


FYI. I'm kinda a girly, romance, "A-list", book reader.
