Top Ten Beach Reads
Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
The beach would be the perfect setting to swoon over Etienne St. Clair.
Sloppy Firsts – Megan McCafferty
Jessica Darling is someone you really should take to the beach with you. She will make sure that you have a good time!
Dante’s Girl – Courtney Cole
If you’re looking for a sweet simple story with tons of swoon moments, this one would be perfect for you. Plus, it’s set in a tropical location that is just right for a beach book!
Wanderlove – Kirsten Hubbard
A story about finding yourself with a little romance along the way? Definitely a good choice for a day at the beach.
Tiger Lily – Jodi Lynn Anderson
This would be a fun imaginative story to take to the beach with you. It takes everything you think you know about the story of Peter Pan and completely changes it.
Beauty Queens – Libba Bray
I’ve heard this book called Lord of the Files meets Miss America. I loved it, and I feel like it has just enough intensity to hit the spot. Also it is filled with several interesting thoughts on society’s obsession with beauty (and pageants).
Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden
The ideal multi-cultural beach read! Engrossing story that is so hard to put down.
Coast Road – Barbara Delinsky
This perfect beach read is beautifully written and filled with poignant moments regarding the importance of love, friendship, and family.
Home Again – Kristin Hannah
Secrets, lies, and romance all with a hint of Hollywood. Not the most complex book by any standards but it is a good summer time book. Especially for someone looking for some simple chick lit to read on the beach or by the pool side.
Sam’s Letters to Jennifer – James Patterson
It’s easy to read this book in one sitting. It’s a tad predictable especially when it comes to the romance but the predictability of it still makes for a good read when you want to forget everything else around you.
