Top Ten Tuesday: Top Beach Reads


Hosted The Broke and the Bookish 

To me a beach read is a book that’s light and fun! Something you can relax and read while sitting out in public without the fear of turning into a sobbing baby or throwing in frustration. It needs to make you feel good and keep you entertained.


  • Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer – This book and it’s sequel (Off the Page) are the perfect feel good fantasy reads. Plus who doesn’t like the idea of our storybook heroes coming to life.
  • The Write Stuff by Tiffany King – This is about an author falling for a cover model. It’s the right mix of romance, humor, feels and character development.
  • Fever by Melissa Pearl – Another amazing and swoony romance. It’s a mostly clean read so you should only be turning red from the sun and not from the steam on the pages, but it was such an addicting read that I could easily see myself lounging on the sand all day with it.

Golden The Secret InregdientClarity

  • Golden by Jessi Kirby – It’s a book that makes you want to go out and do things, and while it does make you think it’s not a super heavy book or loaded with wordy prose.
  • The Secret Ingredient by Stewart Lewis – About a teen who spends the summer before her senior year reading an old recipe book and learning even more about herself and her family.
  • Clarity by Kim Harrington – A paranormal YA mystery with a distinct beachy feel to it.

Alias Hook

  • Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen – A fantastic retelling of Peter Pan from Hook’s point of view. It has a lot of adventure and even some romance.

    I’m curious about Alias Hook. I do like some “lighter” reads in the summer.


  11. This is a great lineup for summer reading. I am planning to read Between the Pages. I originally thought that it was going to be the run of the mill contemporary by looking at the cover. After finding out that it was so much more, I knew that I had to read it. Happy summer reading!
