5 Best Summer Indie Beach Reads

Let's face it. You can pretty much predict what everyone else at the beach will be reading this summer. A bit of what's on the USA Today bestseller list, a pinch of whatever is in People magazine and a healthy dose of whatever was suggested by The New York Times.

Look no further, my friend, because we at IndieReader (via the Huffington Post) have gathered some of our best reviewed books, compiled here, for your reading enjoyment. Because someone has to discover the next Stieg Larsson, Janet Evanovich and [fill in the blank]. No reason why it shouldn't be you!
