Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Recommend As Good Beach Reads (4)

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This weeks Top Ten is:

Beach Blondes if your average YA chick-lit but it would be awesome to read on the beach in the sun. This story is about a girl named Summer who is going to the Florida Keys for the summer after spending a very dull winter in Minnesota. This is a bind-up of three books, each book telling the story of the different months like June, July and August. There is a lot of drama and has a great ending. There is also a sequel called Tan Lines that is about the next year when Summer goes back. It is great as well and very quick reads!

I just had to list a Sarah Dessen book on this list. She is one of my favorite writers and I love her books. While there are a lot of good books by her, I think that Lock and Key would be the best beach read. This book had a lot of touching moments and great story telling. You cannot go wrong by reading a Sarah Dessen book. Another book by hers that I think would be a good beach read would be This Lullaby. That is my favorite book by her and it is one of less serious books by her.

I believe this is an obvious choice that everyone will probably have on their lists! It just such a good beach read. It's about summer, boys, and growing up. I have yet to read the last two books in the series and I really need to get on that. I love the characters!The perfect beach read!

Deadly Cool is a fun and quick read. When you pick this book up you think that it is going to be a serious murder mystery but it's not. It is light and hilarious. The main character Halliday is one of funniest heronies I have ever read from. I also loved her best friend and all of the characters. This is an awesome book!

I loved this story! It's about a girl named Savannah who lives on the coast in North Carolina and plans to spend her summer reading and working at the public library but then she meets Jackson and he seems like the one. I also like how this book takes place on the beach. I also love North Carolina so I liked reading about it in this book. Breathing is an adorable story that is a remarkable read.

6. The Ghost and The Goth - Stacey Kade
The Ghost and The Goth is such a fun and light read. I couldn't tell you how many times I actually laughed out loud reading this. Besides Alona reminds of Regina George from Mean Girls, one of my all-time favorite movies ever! So of course I love this book. Also this cover is gorgeous! I love it! There is also two others books out right now in this series.

I read this book on the car ride to Myrtle Beach so I just had to have it in this list! I think that when you are going to the Beach you are going on a mini road trip or vacation. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is about traveling cross country from the west coast to the east coast. This book has a lot of fun stuff included. There are pictures of land marks, play lists, and a lot of great character development. There is some emotional stuff but not a lot to where it wouldn't be a fun light read. This is the ultimate traveling book to read!

This is such a good amazing book. If you haven't read this yet, you really need too. Sarah Ockler is an amazing writer and I just fell in love with this story. While it is a very sad and deep story, it has a lot of great fun stuff too. Anna and Frankie make a bet that while they are at Frankie's beach house for twenty days they plan to meet a new boy every day, hence the title Twenty Boy Summer.

Another book about traveling. Except this one is about traveling on airplane to England. It is one of the best contemporary books that I have read so far this year. It is fairly short and can be read on one setting. There is also the fact that this book is just right down gorgeous and delightful. Love it!

Starcrossed is my paranormal pick for this since the rest seem to be contemporary. I mostly just picked this for the cover! She is on a beach! Well that and the awesome, awesome, awesome characters and story. This is a remake of the story of Helen and Troy. It is epic and a very quick read. I read it one setting. The next book is out and I really need to read that soon!


  1. Im seeing a lot of people posting about Deadly Cool. I suppose it may be time for me to sit down and read this one.

    Great list

  2. Sarah Dessen wound up on your list, the OP's, and mine. There's just something about Sarah, I suppose. :)

  3. I agree with practically your whole list :D I adored The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! And Amy & Roger's Epic Detour sounds so good, I can't wait to read it for Summer!

    New follower now, your taste in books is great :)

    If you have the time, I would love it if you can drop by the giveaway on my blog *urges* The Statistical Probability is up to (though you probably read it already) but there's 15 other YA titles too. Hope to see you there ;)

  4. Great list and from the looks of things a lot of others do, too. It's amazing how certain books stand out.

  5. Loved Amy and Roger! I want to read Twenty Boy Summer and Statistical Probablity. Fun list :)
