Along with a catchy tune and a fruity cocktail, the other summer essential is great novel. Throughout the year, most moms are too busy to read a book—the many school activities and work appointments give little time for this leisurely activity. But now that summer is here and you have accumulated a great deal of vacation days, it just may be high time to buy one of those summer books all your friends have been raving about.

While your children are playing in the sand with their favorite beach toys or off hiking trails with their dad, it will be wise to have something to read. But with all the options out there, how is one to choose the best summer books in which to invest precious time? From Oscar Wilde to Jeanette Winterson, our moms recommend the best beach books. Click through the slideshow to find your next read.
