Top Ten Tuesday: Beach Reads Recommendation

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday post, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top 10 beach reads or books you want to read on the beach. I don’t go to beach that often, but there are books that remind me of beach and some that I think will be great to read there. So I’m giving you 10 books I recommend to read on the beach. Here they are in no particular order.

Hex Hall (Rachel Hawkins)

I recommend this if you:
prefer magic and loads of humor mixed in a super fluffy beach read.

Along for the Ride (Sarah Dessen)
Keeping the Moon (Sarah Dessen)

I recommend these two if you:
want to spend some time thinking of your life choices (I’m not even joking). Also if you LOVE beach and summer. And Sarah Dessen.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Jenny Han)

I recommend this if you:
want something light and sweet, but have patience to deal with sometimes annoying MC.

Boy-crazed Stacey (Ann M Martin)

I recommend this if you:
used to be or is a fan of Babysitters Club series. Also if you like kids. :))

Kindred spirits (Rainbow Rowell)

I recommend this if you:
are waiting for your friends to get there and only have only 15 minutes to read. Also, if you are part of a fandom (any fandom – not necessarily Star Wars)

The Name of the Wind (Patrick Rothfuss)

I recommend this if you:
have hours, preferably days, to kill and want to immerse yourself in a book. Also work if you have soft spot for worldbuilding and intricate magic system that works.

The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins)

I recommend this if you:
want to read this book because HYPE, but finds it too suffocating or claustrophobic to read indoors.Well, now that you’re out in the sun surrounded by people, there’s no reason not to read it, right? …But why is that person keeps staring at me?

Beauty Queens (Libba Bray)

I recommend this if you:
enjoy satire and absurdities

Guardian of the Dead (Karen Healey)

I recommend this if you:
prefer fantasy book, but wants diversity in your beach read. This unique book blends urban fantasy with Māori mythology, and explore diverse themes.

  1. Ah, The Girl on the Train. I haven’t read that yet but the hype IS insane – my coworkers just recently read it and everyone seems to love it.

    Also Guardian of the Dead sounds interesting just based on the diversity itself! How many stars would you rate it?

    1. I have just finished the girl on the train. It was better than I expected tbh. It was one of those unputdownable books, and despite some weakness in the plot, I found the atmosphere of the book to be very claustrophobic and paranoid, which works well to help the story.
      It’s been a long time since I read Guardian of the Dead. I really liked it, probably about 3.5 to 4 stars. It was a bit too ambitious, so many things cramped into one book, but I really enjoyed it.
