Top Ten Beach Reads
 
(Whenever I think of beach reads, I automatically think of light, fun books. Nothing too heavy or emotionally draining. Now, I'm going to do something different this week. I'm going to list my Top 5 I've already read, and then my top 5 beach reads that I'm planning on reading later this summer.)
 
Books I've Read:
 
1. Inhale, Exhale by Sarah M. Ross. (Ahhh, this book. Grant, Grant, GRANT! A very cute read and there is one scene involving a beach... WHEW.)
 
2. The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy. (OMG this book. So cute, funny, and an all around adorable read. Our main character Juliet has a 'to-do list' before she starts college and skinny dipping is on there. Too bad, one night leads to a whole lot more than she ever realized!)
 
3. Golden by Jessi Kirby. (For those of you that look at my TTT's regularly, you see this one a lot. I loved this book. It involves a road trip, self-discovery, and a splash of romance. SO good.)
 
4. No Strings Attached by Nicolette Day. (I just read this and even though it's a novella, it was a perfect poolside read. The chemistry between the main characters Hayden and Jace was enough to make you melt!)
 
5. Untouched by Melody Grace. (This one is a bit emotional, but it still works. It's also a novella, but the beginnings of love between Emerson and Juliet are precious.)
 
 
 Books I'm Going to Read


6. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. (I have been waiting forever for this one. I cannot
wait!)

7.  Right of Way by Lauren Barnholdt. (I got this awhile back off Edelweiss, and it will be released on July 9th!)

8. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. (This will be my first Sarah Dessen book to read!)

9. Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker. (Rachel over at Rachel Reads was raving about this book. And I just got it from the e-library!)

10. Tidal by Emily Snow. (Look at the gorgeous cover! I know this one also deals with some emotional issues, but... it stills works.)





What makes your list of beach reads?

  7. Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. You have a great list here! I definitely agree with what you said about Golden. It has been popping up on my Tuesday lists quite a lot since I read it, too.

    Also, I hope you enjoy Along for the Ride (one of my favorite Dessen books) and Unbreak My Heart--love both of those!

  8. Golden does look like the perfect beach read!
    And I would have posted The Distance Between Us on my list, but I haven't read it yet. The cover screams "beach read!" though.
    Great list & for stopping by my TTT Jessica! (:
