Books to Pack in Your Beach Bag

Top Ten Tuesday

The beach. Summer. Sun. These are beautiful words. If you’ve ever been to Indiana, though, you’d know there’s not really a beach present…but I do have a neighborhood pool, and it’s one of my favorite things in the summer to go and just lie out and read. It’s relaxing and it’s fun and if it gets too hot, I can just jump in the pool!

There’s something about being at the pool or at the beach, though, that makes you want to read a certain kind of book. Maybe it’s not everyone who feels this way, but I like to bring contemporary books, books about summer and friendship and, yes, perhaps some romance. Here are nine books I’ll probably be packing along with my towel and sunscreen and you should consider to bring with yours! If you want more info, click on the picture and it’ll take you to the Goodreads page.

the start of me and you between us and the moon things we know by heart
to all the boys i've loved before  the distance between us the wrong side of right


What books are you packing with you to the beach or the pool? What kind of books do you like to read there?

  • Alison Doherty

    To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is such a favorite of mine. I’m so jealous you get to read it for the first time. Such a good beach read!

    • Yay! I’m excited you like it so much. I have it checked out from the library right now and am looking forward to reading it. Especially since the sequel came out!
