Top Ten Books That Should Be in Your Beach Bag


I have always been a huge fan of the beach read. Although today my choices usually have more YA romance than chick lit. Here are my top ten suggestions for books to pack when you are headed to the beach. Most of them are summery. Others, like TFiOS and Where She Went are slated to be big summer movies. All of them will go well with sweet drinks, sandy toes, and waves in the background. 

Let me know what you think of my picks in the comments. Also please feel free to return the favor and suggest some books for me to put in my beach bag this summer.

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme.

  1. I’ve only read a few of the books on your list. I’m really looking forward to reading Landline soon!

    1. Me too. That’s one of the only ones on the list I haven’t read yet. I’m just confident enough that it’s going to be so good that I included it. Thanks for commenting!

    1. Fun! All of the John Green novels are great, but An Abundance of Katherines takes place over the summer so I thought it would be the most appropriate. I’m excited to look at your list to get some ideas for my beach bag!

    1. Yeah, with all the fans of Eleanor and Park & Fangirl, I’m sure Landline is going to be in lots of beach bags once it comes out. Thanks for commenting Nicole!

    1. I’m looking forward to Landline too! I also still have a few Sarah Dessen books I haven’t read yet that will definitely be summer reads for me. Can’t wait to read your list.

  2. Have you read any other Maureen Johnson books? I actually haven’t read The Bermudez Triangle, but I thought 13 Little Blue Envelopes and Girl at Sea were good beach reads!

    1. Yes! I’ve read both of those and they are both great beach reads. I still have a few Maureen Johnson’s left though … maybe I knock those off this summer. I really want to read the Suite Scarlett sequel.

  3. Hello, i feel that i noticed you visited my website so i came
    to go back the favor?.I’m attempting to find issues to improve my web site!I suppose its adequate to use
    some of your concepts!!
