Summertime doesn't always mean pool parties
, summer cocktails
and summer concerts
. Kick off your summer staycation with a lazy day at LA's best beaches
or best rooftop bars
. And to pack? Summer tomes to fill the sun-soaked days. Time Out staff round up their favorite reads from new fiction and coffee table reads to beach-read classics and guilty pleasures.
RECOMMENDED: See more Summer in Los Angeles
