Top Ten Tuesday #25: Beach Reads

For me, beach reads should be light and fun. Nothing too serious. Nothing too long. They fall into two categories: heart warming love stories or tales of sisterhood/friendship. And if they take place in summer, all the better.

Good Beach-y Love Stories




The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord (another 5 star review)


Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (also 5 stars)


Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway (5 stars for this one as well)


Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard (last 5 star review, promise)


Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson


Austenland by Shannon Hale


Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
(This book could also fall into this second category.)


Girl Bonding Stories to Read on the Beach


Summer Sisters by Judy Blume


All the Summer Girls by Meg Donohue (my 4 star review)


Paper Towns by John Green


What books do you like to read on the beach?

  1. I wanted to basically include every book by Emery Lord and Morgan Matson because they write summer romances so so well. :)
    And Emmy & Oliver! I adore that book so much. I need to re-read it soon.
    Great list! :)

  4. I read Summer Sisters years ago and can't even remember what it is about... I definitely should reread it. Also I must read Paper Towns. I love a road trip book.

    1. I read it a long time ago too, but I know I've read it more than once, so it must have been good. Paper Towns is fun. I really enjoyed the movie too.

  6. I really want to check out Attachments. It's the only Rainbow Rowell book I haven't read besides Carry On! I also want to check out Morgan Matson's books.

    1. Attachments was my first Rainbow Rowell, and it's my second favorite (after Fangirl). I love Morgan Matson. Definitely get to her soon.
