Top Ten Beach Reads

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week bloggers make lists of their favourite Top Ten on a given subject. This week’s list is Top Ten Beach Reads. I could add SO many books for this list so it’ll be hard to narrow it down to ten! I’m going to try and use books that I haven’t used for this meme! I’ve defined a beach read as a book that was so easy to read, that captured my interest and made me not want to put it down!

As ever, click on the book image to learn more about the book!

Billy And Me- Giovanna Fletcher– This is a perfect beach read. It’s got the right amount of fluff and seriousness. It’s addictive and easy to read.

  1. Twenty Boy Summer looks beautiful – both the summary and the cover. It’s one I’m eager to read. And I agree with the Dog in the Night-time. It is a lovely story.

  2. The Beach Cafe and Billy & Me are both new titles for me that I’m now off to check out on goodreads as I love a few good adult titles for summer reading! 🙂 (And right now that pile is mostly YA or my usual, expected authors on pre-order.)

  3. I was excited to see a new Chris Cleave book that I hadn’t heard of — till I realized it’s a different name for Little Bee, which I’ve read. Strange, same book, different title. I wonder why? I love the cover of Billy and Me, will need to check out a few of these!

  4. Wow, I haven’t heard of a lot of these! I’m definitely going to have to check them out… Billy and Me especially sounds like it could be really cute. 🙂
