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!

  7. Oh Nantucket Blue! I've had that book for so long now! I really want to read it. Same for On the Island! There are a few other beachy books on your list I need to look up!

Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.
