Top Ten Tuesday – Books in My Beach Bag

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, to share lists with other bookish folks.  

This week’s meme is Top Ten Books In Your Beach Bag.  I’m not a beach girl – I love my annual staycation the week of July 4th.  But if I were going to a beach that week – these are the books I’d take with me.  I’m a mood reader, so I need to have lots of options to pick from. I hope to actually read some of these the week I’m on vacation!

1. Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire – for my NA mood. This book releases the week of my vacation and I can’t wait to read it.

2. Violets of March by Sarah Jio – for my women’s fiction/chick lit mood.  I remember trying this book a long time ago and it just wasn’t for me.  After reading and loving Goodnight June – I think Sarah Jio’s books are the perfect beach/vacation reads.

3. Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds –  for my smutty/romance mood. This book has been recommended to me for a good alpha read.

4. Honor Reclaimed by Tonya Burrows – for my romantic suspense mood. I have seen this book get some great reviews, and I love a book with a good mix of suspense and romance.

5. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – for my YA mood. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about this book and think it sounds like the perfect vacation read.

1.  Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – this is just a fun, sweet book I think would be perfect for a vacation read.  Any Rainbow Rowell book would be perfect for vacation, IMO.

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – most adorable YA book ever.

3. Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard – one of my favorite series and authors, this book is a perfect mix of romance and sexual tension.

4. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – I can’t express enough my love for Colleen and this book.  Doesn’t matter what book of hers you choose – there should be at least one of her books in your beach bag!  This book in particular is my favorite.

5. Missing You by Harlan Coben – great for a good mystery/suspense fix.  Coben is my favorite author of this genre and this book was gripping and suspenseful.  Perfect for a vacation read.

What’s in your beach bag?
