This week's topic is: Top Ten Favorite Summer Beach Reads
1. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson- I adore Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. It is touching and while it could've been a 100% cliche book, the details woven into the novel made it very original. In Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, Amy and Roger go on a road trip. I always think of road trips as something one would do in the summer, so ta-da this would be a great summer beach read.
3.The Boyfriend List: 15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs and Me, Ruby Oliver (Ruby Oliver, #1)- I read this novel (I'm not going to repeat the title--criminy it's long!) in about two and a half hours. Partly because it is short, and partly because it was extremely funny and kept me interested. This light and fun novel that is 100% hilarious would definitely be a great beach read.
4. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han- The setting of this novel is the beach. The season in which the novel takes place is summer. There is a beach house involved. There is a love triangle of sorts going on. Enough said-this book belongs to summer.
5. Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins- Anna and The French Kiss is one of my very favorite books. While the novel is adorable and somewhat fluffy, Stephanie Perkins wrote the novel superbly. I have never been to Paris, and after reading this novel, I am whole-heartedly in love with the city. Paris + romance = A good beach read.
6. Forgive My Fins by Terra Lynn Childs- Forgive My Fins was a chick-lit novel. It's been a while since I have read this book, but I know that there were mermaids and kissing involved, so there you have it, it is destined to be read on the beach.
7. Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen- Although this novel is middle grade, you will never be too old for it. Flipped is hilarious, and adorable. This novel would be and awesome beach read because of the romance (maybe I should say the not-so-romance or almost-romance) and the (mostly) fluffiness of the novel.
8. Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mylnowski- This novel is mostly light and fluffy, and light and fluffy books belong in the summer.
10. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray- The setting of this novel is a deserted island, and the island is made up of a couple of beaches. The beach setting would make Beauty Queens a fun beach read. Also, there are pirates involved, so if you were on the beach you could imagine that you were about to be taken captive by the pirates.
10. The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg- The Lonely Hearts Club goes by in a blink. Whenever I looked up from reading the novel and saw what page I was on, I would be stunned that I had read 35 pages in 10 minutes. The Lonely Hearts Club is definitely light, fluffy, and a total chick-flick that would be perfecto for the beach.
