Top Ten Books I Think Make Great Beach Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!

I love reading books set at a beach (especially Nantucket!) when I am at the beach-- this list has some YA, NA, romance and a little mystery and suspense.


  1. The Summer I Turned Pretty is a perfect beach read! In fact, all of the Summer series is. I've heard great things about Nantucket Blue and On the Island as well.
    Great list! Happy reading! :)

  2. Nice picks! All totally new to me. But that's to be expected from a non-contemp reader! LOL! Seeing lots of contemps today!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
