This is my very first time participating in the Top Ten Tuesday! Are you excited for me? It’s ok, you don’t have to be. I’m excited enough for the both of us.
Since this is my first time there is a chance that I will commit some sort of book blogging faux pas.*
I don’t believe that beach reads necessarily have to be easily digestible books. I don’t think that reading a big fat classic while sand is getting into all of your crannies is great either. I’ve tried to pick some books in betwixt the two extremes.
Here are the books that I think would be a great addition to any beach bag:
Jaws by Peter Benchley – Because duh. I think it’s a test of our readerly mettle. If you can read this on the beach and still go in the water you are a true lit lover.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry – This book will be on every list of books I ever make EVER. It’s that good.
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen – This takes place on a lake so it’s kinda a no-brainer.
Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge – Another easy pick…it’s a good book that starts out in water.
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn – This backlist title hasn’t been shown nearly enough love. It’s absolutely perfect for word nerds.
*Such as choosing only 5 books for the Top Ten Tuesday. Ha!
Have a good one, ya’ll!
