Top Ten Books That Will Be In My Beachbag

June 2, 2014 Top Ten Tuesday 13

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is:


My “beach books” aren’t necessarily light, fluffy reads.  I need a variety, so below, you will see books from many genres.  Let me know if you’re looking forward to any of these!

Landline by Rainbow Rowell: The only book I’ve fully read by Rainbow Rowell is Fangirl, although I’m currently listening to Attachments on audiobook.  Eleanor and Park has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while, but I just haven’t had a chance to read it yet.  Even with the little bit that I’ve read from her, I feel confident I will love Landline.
Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead: The last Bloodlines book, The Fiery Heart, was a bit of a disappointment.  But I’ve loved everything else I’ve read by Mead, so I’m hoping for some redemption with this next book.
On the Fence by Kasie West: I am woefully behind on my Kasie West books.  Pivot Point was wonderful, but I have not managed to read anything else from her, even though The Distance Between Us and Split Second are both sitting on my shelf.  On the Fence is probably the most “beach bag-gy” book on my list, and this might just have to be my next West book.
Deadly Little Sins by Kara Taylor: The Prep School Confidential series is so much fun, even though it’s a little dark, and I can’t wait to see how the trilogy wraps up.
Lock In by John Scalzi: Why NOT read a sci-fi book on the beach?
The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey: And speaking of sci-fi, I’m looking forward to this follow-up to The Fifth Wave.
In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis: I made no secret of the fact that Not a Drop to Drink was my favorite book of 2013.  If this companion novel isn’t amazing, I will be shocked.
Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang: Margot and Aubrey really talked this one up on TeaTime, and since I recently read and loved Noggin by John Corey Whaley based on their recommendation, I hope I’ll enjoy this one just as much.
Rooms by Lauren Oliver: I love that Lauren Oliver writes various genres so well, (even though Before I Fall is still my favorite.)  I can’t wait to see what she does with a ghost story.
The Jewel by Amy Ewing: I think I might be getting a bit burned out on dystopias, but this sounds promising.


Your turn!  Share your TTT post with me below!

    I would love to try something else from Lauren Oliver! So far I’ve only read Panic. x) I need to expand my horizons a bit there, hehe. Ohhh, I really really want to read Falling into Place! I followed the author’s blog before she was published and it was really awesome. Can’t wait until it releases!!

    I haven’t read Not a Drop To Drink yet, but plan to… seeing that a sequel is coming, maybe I’ll move it up a bit. The premise does sound really good, and for some reason I thought of Not a Drop as a standalone. Nice that the story continues.

    On the fence is adorable. I’ve yet to read Not a drop to drink, but I can’t wait to pick it up soon. The Jewel sounds fantastic and I’m also planning to read Falling into place. I don’t like Lauren Oliver’s YA, but I loved her MG and look forward to see what I think about her adult book. Happy reading 😀
