Top Ten Tuesday #3


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the BookishEach week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week: Top Ten Best Beach Reads!

An ideal beach book for me means a light, not too thick read which will not make you cry or display too much emotion and about which you do not have to think very hard.



Chicklits





Fantasy





Books about water/the beach

  4. I love reading my Pretty Little Liars series in the Summer! I'm so glad it's on your list, as well as Gossip Girl because there's nothing like a high-school drama to read on the Beach :) Great TTT!

  10. The Lightning Thief would be way fun to read at the beach. I should have put that on my list as well.

  11. Twilight is a great choice for a beach read!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Grat list - I love you had Anna and the French Kiss on there - LOVE that book and Stephanie Perkins! If you have not read Lola and the Boy Next Door - it's a must read! I also loved Twilgiht and even though the series is done, still a Twihard @ heart so I totally reccommend Twlight too - sometimes i still read over that while i'm sitting on the beach, nothing like a great re-read to zone out to on vacation! Great list!

  13. Some very fun choices. I like that you included some about water. I will look for Of Poseidon and Wake.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like your choices :-). there are a few that I've never read before. I've been wanting to try out the Pretty Little Liars books.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pretty LIttle Liars is a good choice! I breezed through those and am still addicted to the TV show. Hope you get to enjoy all of these :)

  18. The Lightning Thief has been on my to-read list for too long. I need to pick it up this summer. Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Harry Potter will always remind me of the beach bc I read the majority of the last one on the beach right after it came out :) Wake looks like a good beach read and I totally agree w/ reading fun series at the beach. It's a good place to read stuff like that. I always read PLL and The Lying Game at the beach :)

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

  20. I've read all of them in the fantsy section besides for Starcrossed. I might have to check that out!
