Top Ten Tuesday #34 – My Beach Reads 2015

Posted May 26, 2015 by Lillian in Features / 11 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Summer is in the air and so this week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday fits the bill. Today’s topic is “Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer or Ten Books I Think Make Great Beach Reads.” I’m not going to the beach this year 😫 but I do have a certain type of book that I consider great beach reading: contemporary romance. Not the kind that’s full of drama, but the sweet, heart-warming kind. You know kind of like a cupcake – sweet, quick to eat, yet so satisfying 😉 Here’s my top ten beach reads in no particular order (covers link to Goodreads). Note: I’ve not read these books previously so this is like a TBR list for me as well.

  1. I have given up on Pride and Prejudice spin offs. I love the idea, but have not yet found one that appeals to me. I look forward to seeing what you think of it. If you like it, I will give it a try.
    I have heard a lot of wonderful things about Eleanor and Park. I have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell book, but I have several on my TBR.
    Here’s to a great summer of reading!

    • I read a spinoff I really liked around Christmas last year. It’s called My Own Mr. Darcy, really cute! You should check that one out 🙂

    Great list! I wanted to recommend an awesome contemporary romance I just finished called “The Friend Request” by author Charles Soto ( The book follows Chase and Carly, two high school sweethearts who reconnect after years and years and find that their lives and priorities are totally different. Chase owns a successful business, lives the millionaire lifestyle and Carly is stuck in a dead end job and is trying her best to raise her disabled son on her own. The book has so many twists and turns throughout I couldn’t put it down. I love the idea of getting a second chance at life and love and this book shows that you can have just that 🙂
