Heartstopper Series and Show by Alice Oseman and Netflix 

Before the hit Netflix show, which I also highly reccomend, were the graphic novels of the same name! This is a gay coming-of-age story, adorable and silly. It is perfect to read on the beach, Wilcox Park, or on a plane headed to a new destination. After you are hooked, you can rejoice that there is plenty more to read from this four-book series.

The Island of the Sea Women by Lisa See

A sweeping historical saga spanning several generations of an all-female diving collaborative beginning in colonial Korea through present times. Fascinating novel about a little-known profession!
