1. If you want a book where the character is similar to Belly I recommend Saints & Misfits by S.K. Ali

Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali

I feel like Belly and Janna are both around the same age. They both have people in their lives who treat them like they’re younger and they just want to be independent.

2. If you’re Team Jeremiah, pick up Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

Love & Gelato book

It’s not a summer beach house romance, but the protagonist does get swept away by two main love interests when she spends a summer in Italy.

Jeremiah says: “You Sure About That?” VIA GIPHY

3. If you’re Team Conrad, grab a copy of It All Comes Back to You by Farah Naz Rishi

It All Comes Back to You by Farah Naz Rishi

Deen is very similar to Conrad. He’s just as broody, just as hopelessly in love with the protagonist, and doesn’t think he deserves her. If you’re a Conrad girl, give this book a chance!

4. If you liked Cam Cameron, read TJ Power Has Something to Prove by Jesmeen Kaur Deo

I feel like Cameron reminds me a little bit of the love interest in TJ Power Has Something to Prove. This book is also perfect if you’re a fan of Never Have I Ever.

5. Are you a fan of Steven & Shayla? Pick up The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

Steven says: “I think I love you.” Via GIPHY.

Shayla and Stella both have a lot of money. Just like Steven, Michael (in The Kiss Quotient) is trying to land a job. Except in Michael’s case, the money isn’t for himself like it is in Steven’s case. Michael needs money to pay his mom’s medical bills. On the other hand, Stella has more money than she knows what to do with it. This is perfect for anyone who ships Shayla and Steven!

6. Want a book that has a strong friendship like Laurel & Susannah’s? Read Sweet Mongolias Stealing Home by Sheryl Wood.

Stealing Home Sweet Mongolias by Sheryl Woods

The friendships the three moms have is similar to the one between Susannah and Laurel. They’re there for each other during all the highs and lows in their lives. There’s also a Netflix adaptation called Sweet Mongolias.

Fabulous from Sweet Mongolias via GIPHY.

7. Do you love Laurel and Cleveland ? Pick it up The Roughest Draft by husband and wife author duo Emily Wibberly and Austin Siegemund-Broka

The Roughest Draft

Just like Cleveland and Laurel, Katrina Freeling and Nathan Van Hyusen hate each other but work together on their book. Slightly different from Cleveland and Laurel, but I felt like their chemistry are pretty similar to each other.

A woman is smiling and holding up the sign that states: “Plot: enemies to lovers!”

8. Want a book that will make you feel like you’re back at Cousins Beach? Pick up Fallen Too Fae by Abbi Glines.

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Rosemary Beach premise is similar to Cousins Beach. Except it’s steamier. I’d also say there’s a lot of sub plots that have a deeper underlying message so don’t let the cover of the book make you stop reading it.

9. Need a book that reminds you of Belly? Pick up By the Book by Jasmine Guillory.

By the Book

Isabelle and Belly (her full name is also Isabelle) share the same name. By the Book is for those who ship Jeremiah and Belly. I adored by the book (got to read an e-arc)!!

10. Here’s another summer read if you LOVED The Summer I Turned Pretty! It’s The Summer of You by Nagisa Faruya

My Summer of You by Nagisa Faruya

This is the perfect summer book for those who love mangas or graphic novels. It’s a cute summer romance that reminds me of how Belly feels like she’s always looking forward to summer at Cousins Beach.

Belly says: “All the Time!” Via GIPHY.
