Top Ten Tuesday: Books in My Beach Bag

So, books in my (imaginary) beach bag.  I tried to choose light reads, because who wants to read something depressing or scary on a sunny day at the beach in front of so many strangers.  I also don't think I could fit sunscreen, water, food, or anything else in this bag because of how full it'll be.

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1) 16081202 17453983
This book is set in the Hamptons during the summer, so it's the perfect beach read.
2. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Wishing for a summer spent on the road with your BFF and a swoon-worthy boy?  Put this read in your beach bag!
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Swoon-worthy summer romances are basically the theme of this TTT, so don't forget this romance!

4. Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton
It was hard picking just one of Michelle's summer romances, but I ultimately chose this one since Anna and Will are adorable, and it's set on a beachy island.
5. The Selection by Kiera Cass
Although there are definitely issues aside from romance and it can sometimes get angsty (although that's more in The Elite), The Selection is definitely a good romance to read.
6. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
I almost recommended On the Fence, but since it isn't out yet, I chose something that can automatically go in your beach bag.  Cute boys, snarky dialogue, and a sense of sarcasm that reminded me of myself at times.

17228280 16067180 Wish You Were Italian
7. Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
Y'all know why I love this book.  I'll say nothing more.
8. Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill
There's romance, yes, but there're also hijinks and hockey and figure skating.
9. Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae
It's a summer romance, for goodness' sake.  Get this book in your beach bag asap!

16248148 15790873 17573559
Another summer romance, and this one's set in a theme park!
11. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Oh, look another summer romance.  This isn't my favorite book of hers, but it's still a cute read.
12. Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
This choice is quite different from my others mainly because it revolves around friendship, family, and love, with love being only a small part.

11115457 Going Vintage 12814519
13. Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
Another romance, but this one isn't as fluffy as some of the others I've mentioned.
14. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
My favorite book by Lindsey, so of course it's going in my beach bag.
15. Belles by Jen Calonita
This book isn't too heavy, so it's a nice read for the beach.


  1. I really want to read The Selection! These are such great picks :)

    Check out my TTT!

  2. Hi Emma! This is a totally random question: have you read the book Across the Universe? It looks really interesting, but I don't know if it's good.

    1. I have not. I don't like most books set in space; it's just not my thing.

  3. I have Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend on hold at the library, I'm looking forward to it! And I want to read Being Sloane Jacobs too! :)

    Love The Distance Between Us, Better Off Friends, This is What Happy Looks Like, and Going Vintage! :)

  4. Great picks! Anna and the French Kiss is one of my favorites, though I haven't read Lola yet. Time Between Us is also so amazing!
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  5. Such a hot list! I really loved Anna and the French Kiss and I just finished Lola and the Boy Next Door, I highly recommend it!

  6. I loved all your picks! If I would do something like this, I would need more than one bag to carry all I would want to bring to the beach.

  7. Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend is the perfect beach read! Light, fun and full of drama. I really enjoyed that book even if it was a bit over the top.
