Top Ten Tuesday - Week 14

"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks top ten is: Top Ten Books that should be in your Beach Bag. Totally perfect for summer 8-) I typically think of light, "fluffy" type books which I would really enjoy at the here it is!

1. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han 

This one's the most obvious, it's got summer in the TITLE for pete's sake. I've already read this one, and I loved it! Totally makes summer special...I can't wait to get my hands on the 2nd book, It's Not Summer Without You. The trilogy just ended and I REALLY want to know what happens!

2. Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont
Review AmazonGoodreads

This one was slightly a bit heavier, but it's about a summer of camping and other wilderness related things, and I think it's perfect! Really loved it. I read this online, so I'm hoping someday I can get a physical copy so I can ACTUALLY bring it to the beach ;)

3. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

Oh. My. GOD. I can literally read this series over and over–and over again. Love the classic tale of Carmen, Lena, Bridget and Tibby :D I can't believe a 5th one is coming out! I'm SO EXCITED! Can hardly wait :)

4. How to be Popular by Meg Cabot

This one is HILARIOUS. Had me laughing out loud so much– it's perfect! Light and Fluffy, all the way ;) with some seriously funny consequences. This and Teen Idol. ALL THE WAY.

5. Agatha Christie Mysteries (Hercule Poirot)

When I generally think of summer, I think of the Agatha Christie's on my aunt's shelf in India. I always read 2 or more of these, and I can't wait to go and dive into another of the fabulously told stories.

6. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
Amazon Goodreads

This one FINALLY arrived in the school library and I can't wait to go ahead and borrow it (dumb "4 books only" policy....GAH! Nearly finished XVI, so we'll see ;D). It sounds cute and really "summerish". Been recommended so many times, and I'm just so glad it's finally available for moi to devour. 

Well, that's all I can think of unfortunately! How about you?? Got any amazing summer reads to recommend? Leave a link/comment!


  1. Isn't it funny how Agatha Christie seems to *mean* summer in some way or other? She's on my list too.

  2. Hercule Poirot books is a good choice!! And the Sisterhood of Travelling Pants of course :) Fun list!

    Here's mine:

  3. Sarah Dessen and Meg Cabot seem to be popular choices for this meme. We need to get on that!!

    We would recommend ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins as a good summer/beach read.

  4. I still have yet to read the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I may just have to add that to my beach reads.

  5. Love the Sisterhood series! I've seen Along for the Ride popping up on some of these beach bag lists, including mine.

    For more reads? Hailey Abbot, Maureen Daily, Katherine Applegate, Jennifer Echols. My list has a few of those on there too.

    I seemed to have acquired lots of summer-ish/beach-ish books over the past few years.

    Have a great day!

  6. I too enjoy Agathat Christie novels. Sarah Dessen is one quite a few bloggers summer read list do i will head to the beach with one novel of hers to read also

  7. Agatha Christie is perfect summer holiday reading!

  8. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!!! I can't believe I forgot that one. It's perfect for a summer read.

  9. I've seen The Summer I Turned Pretty a few times already today so I'm going to have to hunt down that one and try it out.
