This week’s Top 10 Tuesday theme is: Top Ten Beach Read Books
It’s tough, because I don’t really have specific books I’d consider “beach” reads as opposed to any other book. I suppose I wouldn’t bring a heavy, deep paperweight of a book… so I suppose this means an easy-breezy read. However, not too much fluff. If it’s so contrived and ridiculous that I would be easily distracted from, sitting on a beach, then why bother.
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling <– The sixth book had just come out at midnight, and later that afternoon we were headed to the beach for my sister’s birthday. She hung out with her friends while me and 2 of her friends sat there on the beach devouring the latest installment!
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins <– The only book on this list that I haven’t read yet, but I have seen it on SO many other people’s lists of different themes from the past few months that I’m thoroughly intrigued. It seems like an interesting light-enough book to read in the sun.
- The Younger Man by Sarah Tucker <– I read this ages ago and I remember loving it. Fun, guilty pleasure read 😉
- Something Borrowed by Emily Giffen <– Really, any of Giffen’s books are fantastic reads. Not too heavy but fully captivating of a story.
- The Last Summer (of You & Me) by Ann Brashares <– Read this last summer. Good story… bittersweet…
- The Dim Sum of All Things by Kim Wong Keltner <– I thought this was such a funny, witty read. Maybe because it had to do with Westernized Asian culture that I could relate to it so much more.
- The Luxe by Anna Godbersen <– It’s like Gossip Girl set in 1899!
- Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella <– Always a classically fun read!
- Angels & Demons by Dan Brown <– I absolutely loved this book. One of the few on this list that isn’t light-reading, but would be fantastic to lie in the sun all day and delve into it.
- Scott Pilgrim series by Bryan Lee O’Malley <– Fairly quick graphic novels… funny, witty and entertaining!
