Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Beach Bag Reads
Here comes the summer – books that will definitely be making an appearance in my beach bag! I can think of nothing better than curling up with some of these books. 😀 I don’t much of a selection process for these apart from the fact that they are books that have either just recently come out or are due to be out shortly. Most are also contemporaries which I find to be the perfect summer reading material.
1. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
This looks like a really sweet, contemporary read – perfect for those lazy summer days! I’ve heard a lot of good things so I’m anxious to read this!
2. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
I read a lot of LGBT books but seem to read more m/m. I would like to read more lesbian fiction and this looks like a really amazing read.
3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This looks like a quirky and fun contemporary read. I have actually been wanting to read this for a little while but have only recently purchased it.
4. Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel
A modern-day Peter Pan retelling? Sign me up! This books looks right up my street. I like the retelling element but surfing has always been a secret wish of mine so win/win!
5. The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
This looks like a really cute summer read. Definite beach reading material! There is nothing like a nice, fluffy contemporary to accompany you on a beach trip!
6. Boys Like You by Julia Stone
I really like the look of this, plus I also enjoy heavier reads during a holiday just as much as I do the fluffy ones and this book looks like it fits the bill.
7. #scandal by Sarah Ockler
This has an intriguing premise and sounds like quite a different type of summer read. I loved Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler so I hope this has a similar feel.
8. On the Fence by Kasie West
This looks like a really cute read – I cannot wait until it is released. I’ve been hearing a lot of good rumblings about Kasie West from people whose opinion I trust.
9. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I really want to read this book – it sounds like it could be a perfect summery read. A contemporary with a bit of a bite to it – my perfect beach bag read!
10. The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi
Another LGBT read with a serious premise – I think this book could be very powerful and moving and I am keen to read it asap!
