Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by Broke and Bookish. This week it’s Beach Reads Week, top ten great beach reads, ten books I plan to read on the beach, ten beach reads for those who don’t like typical “beach reads,” ten authors who are my go-to for beach reads, etc.
I’m not actually sure what classifies a novel as a beach read? As such I have opted to create a quasi list composed of novels I hope to read this summer, whether that be on a beach or not.
By Anthony Doerr
Reading this per Lydia’s suggestion for our book club.
By Marieke Nijkamp
This novel tackles a very difficult situation which is, unfortunately, very relevant right now.
By Maggie Nelson
Emma Watson encourages reading about relevant topics such as equality through Our Shared Shelf. This book is the newest addition to that group.
By Cassandra Clare
I’m not sure I will actually read this novel. I didn’t like most of Cassandra Clare’s other works so I’m still on the fence about picking up this admittedly popular new novel.
By Victoria Aveyard
For some reason I really enjoyed the first instalment of this series. I think at the time I was relieved to read a light novel despite its clichés and cheesy dialogue.
By Renée Ahdieh
This series had a very exciting first instalment so it’s no wonder I’m itching to get my hands on this new novel.
By Jojo Moyes
A movie which includes both Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin? Need I say more?
By Joseph Boyden
An important look into Canadian history.
By Donna Tartt
Having finished The Secret History I was anxious to delve into some of Donna Tartt’s more recent works.
By Richelle Mead
I am unhealthily invested in Richelle Mead’s books so I can’t wait to get my hands on this novel despite its somewhat cringe-worthy cover.
