Top Ten Books That Will Be In Danielle's Beach Bag This Summer


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, make sure you go an check it out! It’s a ton of fun.

Since I live on the Jersey Shore I spend a ton of time at the beach in the summer, I also use that time to read quite a few contemporary books. I think contemporary is a good genre to read on the beach because it is usually light hearted and fun. It’s easy to pick up and then put down when you want to enjoy talking to your friends or go swimming in the water. Here are the Top Ten Books I want to read on the beach this year.

177884031. Maybe Someday Colleen Hoover Goodreads
This one is a New Adult age novel, which I really enjoy because the characters are around my age and I can really relate to them.

2. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson Goodreads
I’m a HUGE fan of Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour so I’m excited to FINALLY read another novel by her. I haven’t gotten around to Second Chance summer yet. Since I own Since You’ve Been Gone already I had to put this on my beach list.

3. My Life Next Door by  Huntley Fitzpatrick  Goodreads
I’ve been wanted to pick this one up for awhile now, and what better time to finally read it than at the beach. Love the cover and it sounds adorable.

4.The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset  Goodreads
Okay, this isn’t a contemporary novel but I’m DYING to read it. It came out on June 1st and I actually picked up a copy at BEA. I love novels with faeries.

5. Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally Goodreads
LOVED Catching Jordan by Kenneally and I’m really excited to read some other books by her. She actually has quite a few out since Catching Jordan and I wouldn’t be surprised if they also make their way into my bag.

6. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare Goodreads
Another non contemporary novel but I will be reading this one ASAP and wouldn’t be surprised if it makes it’s way to the beach with me. (When you live close to the beach, you go a lot). I can’t wait to finish this series.

7. Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly Goodreads
I think it would be interesting to read about mermaids while you’re right next to the water.

8. Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff Goodreads
This sounds like a fun and quirky novel about gamers. I’m not a gamer but I’m still really excited to read this one.

9. A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall Goodreads
This sounds fun and adorable. A love story told in every perspective BUT the main characters of the love interest.

10. Even In Paradise by Chelsey Philpot Goodreads
This one doesn’t technically come out until October, but I have an ARC and this one it just calling me to read at the beach. The cover even has a beach setting!


  1. Since You've Been Gone will definitely be in my beach bag this summer as well!

    My Top Ten

  2. Maybe Someday is just so good!! I have CoHF but I'm in a "I'm rereading the series first" predicament!


    1. Glad to hear you liked Maybe Someday! :D

  3. There are so many books on your list that I need to read! My Life Next Door and Deep Blue both sound like great reads, so I hope you enjoy them. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of City of Heavenly Fire - I finished it recently and enjoyed it.

    1. I can't wait to read City of Heavenly Fire. Hopefully I'll be able to soon! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it, I've heard great things so far.

  4. Breathe Annie Breathe is on my list too - I really like the Hundred Oaks series. A Little Something Different sounds interesting, I'll have to add it to my list!

    1. It does sound interesting that why I'm so excited to read it. I like books that do something new.
