Team Dudley’s Summer Reads

It’s the season for turning pages with your toes in the sand. Here are the books you’ll find in our beach bags—accessorized with #dsgoods style, of course.


Pages: The View Was Exhausting by Mikaella Clements and Onjuli Datta

Pairs well with: Harding Lane Pineapple Hat, to keep the rays off the pages

“Celebrities, jet-setting and a fake (or is it) romance—all a beach read needs!”


Pages: The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

Pairs well with: Pineapple Tervis Tumblers, for sipping along with the story

“I recommend starting this when you have time to fly through every suspenseful plot twist.”


Pages: The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain

Pairs well with: DS Beach Blanket (which makes any book a beach read)

“Not your typical love story! A gripping tale of how place and time can shape your choices.”


Pages: Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Pairs well with: Somerset Sweatshirt over a swimsuit—this should be read poolside

“I like summer reads that are juicy, with a little bit of bite. I found this one unputdownable.”


Pages: Well-Behaved Indian Women by Saumya Dave

Pairs well with: Crab & Cleek Pineapple Tote, to keep this read at the ready

“Think Emily Giffin-style characters and pace, with a culture-clashing plot twist.”
