I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:
Ten Books I Will Have In My Beach Bag This Summer
I have never been totally clear on what a "beach read" is. I love the beach, don't get me wrong. But, to me, books are either good or not, regardless of the season, or whether or not a large body of water is near me. I think for most people it has something to do with being more on the lighter side, and probably fiction? Yes? I'll go with that. And with that extremely loose definition, here are my summer beach read recommendations:
I want to read this book so badly, no beach could distract me from its pages.
It's Maas. Maas and the beach are two of my favorite things, so boom. Beach read.
With all the hype around this one, it's sure to either make or break your beach day.
Cass has definitely perfected light, fluffy fiction. So there you go.
Spring and summer are times to organize and clean for me, so this book on how to live with kids in a functional and aesthetically appealing way is right up my summer alley.
This book feels like it will give me wanderlust. I've always wanted to go to India. And since summertime often equals travel, it's a good match.
I loved the Phantom of the Opera retelling Of Metal And Wishes, and have been looking forward to its sequel for months! This August it will finally be here. So you know what I'll be doing the first week of August.
What if you aren't the chosen one? This book sounds witty, funny, and absolutely delightful. Kind of like Ron Weasely, and all the other non-chosen-ones out there.
If excitement and adventure are your beachy cup of tea, look no further. This one sounds dazzling.
This one technically doesn't come out until September 1st, but that's still basically summer, right? Hopefully I'll snag an ARC and be reading this earlier anyway (PLEASE, BLOOMSBURY, I'LL DO ANYTHING) so its spot on my list is merited.
What's on your beach read list? Also, who here will actually be spending time at the beach this summer??
