Ten Books I Think Make Great Beach Reads

10. Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian

I read this book on a trip one time and simply loved it. I thought it was a light fun read and I couldn't put it down. When I'm at the beach I want to read a book that's lighthearted and if you feel the same then this book should be in your beach bag this summer.

9. Losing It OR Faking It by Cora Carmack
Losing It is the first book I read by the genius that Cora is and I loved it. As soon as I could get my greedy hands on Faking It I did and I loved it even more. Yeah I didn't think it was possible but it happened.

8. Wake by Amanda Hocking
I know I said earlier that I enjoy light books at the beach and this book is exactly light BUT it's about sirens and that makes me happy. This is a great summer read!

7. The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
Keeping on the "not so light train" I'm going to go with The Lucky One because it's my favorite Nicholas Sparks book. Sometimes you want something a little more romantic and intense and if that is the case for you then here's your book.

6. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
This book takes place at a beach house in the summer...I mean do I need to explain why I chose this?

5. Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs
I freaking love this book. I read it a couple of years ago and a few months back I bought all the books so I could reread them. This book made me laugh and feel all sorts of happy. It's about mermaids and it's fun so hellur, perfect beach read.

4. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
If you know me then you know I'm a massive Sophie Kinsella fan. I've loved her since the first time I read Can You Keep a Secret. All of her books would make excellent beach reads but I think this one would especially because Becky Bloomwood is hysterical.

3. Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen
Sarah Dessen is one of the queens of YA contemporary so of course she needs to be on here. I don't feel like I need to say more. :)

2. Anna & The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This book is all sorts of adorable and light so it's perfect for a day at the beach!

1. Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines
Yeah I know, you aren't surprised that I included this book. I'd like to try and be more original for you but COME ON!! This book is not only wonderful it's also a part of the Rosemary BEACH series. You want a book for the beach you read a book that has beach in the title.
