Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site to see the original list for today plus links to a whole slew of other blogs. After you read mine, of course.

Today’s Topic is: Favorite Beach Reads
This topic is right up my alley. I absolutely adore those fluffy, summery, beach-y reads that come out every summer. In no particular order, my top “ten” (I suck. I know. Pretend there are only 10) are: 
My Life Next DoorGirls in White DressesThe Truth About Forever 
GoldenRemember Me?Burn for Burn (Burn for Burn, #1) 
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Sisterhood, #1)Goodnight NobodyEvery Boy's Got One (Boy, #3)
 This Is What Happy Looks LikeAnna and the French KissGirls Night in

My Life Next Door  by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I loved this cute story of neighbors who fall in love.
Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close
Full of vignettes of life in your early 20s. Cute, fast, and so true.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
This is my favorite Dessen book. Follows a girl over a summer as her world finally begins to expand.
Golden by Jessi Kirby
This book is lovely. That is all.
Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella
Really any book written by Ms. Kinsella could be on this list. This is one of my favorites.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
A fun story of three girls looking for revenge
I re-read this series every couple of summers. Love.
Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner
A murder mystery by Jennifer Weiner!
Every Boy’s Got One by Meg Cabot
I love this whole “series” of books (very loosely related) told in mostly in emails. So cute.
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
A boy and a boat. That actually is what my happy looks like.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Why, yes, I am aware that this book makes most of my lists. I love it.
Girls Night In by The Best Authors in Chick-Lit
This compilation of short stories is the perfect beach read.

This was seriously hard. I could have done a top 50 easily. I’m going to stop second guessing myself now (how do I not have any Jane Green or Emily Giffin on here?) and post this.

  2. The Truth About Forever is a wonderful choice for a beach read – why didn't I come up with it too?! I haven't had a chance to read any of the others yet but I'm dying to, especially Golden and My Life Next Door.

  3. I haven't read any of these books… yet. But This Is What Happy Looks Like is at the top of my list! And yes, you should have added some Jane Green (I enjoyed Mr. Maybe). I really think you'd like Andrea Semple's, The Ex-Factor (on my TTT list) too!


  4. Anna & The French Kiss is perfect for the beach! Isn't funny how certain books always end up on our lists? I know I'm guilty of mentioning my faves practically every week. I've really liked the Jennifer Weiner books I've read, and I'm looking forward to This Is What Happy Looks Like (just brought it home from the library!). Great list! Lots for me to look into, too!

  5. Golden!! I knew there was one I'd heard a lot about that I was forgetting to put on my list, and that's the one. I can't wait to get to it, and My Life Next Door. They both sound awesome. 🙂


  6. Love this list! 🙂 I've got Burn for Burn sat on my bookshelf waiting to be read, need to get round to it soon! And Girls in White Dresses looks really good, and that cover is so cute!


  7. Yay for The Truth About Forever & Anna! I really loved This is What Happy Looks Like too 🙂
    I really NEED to get my hands on a copy of My Life Next Door & Burn for Burn. They both sound amazing!
    Great list 🙂


  8. Great list. The Truth About Forever and Anna made my list last year. By the way, the truth is also my favorite Dessen book. I'm looking forward to reading My Life Next Door cause I've been seeing it lately on a lot of lists.
