Top Ten Books -That should be in your Beach Bag

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish. Each week we create a list on a variety of bookish topics. This weeks list: Top Ten Books That Should be in Your Beach Bag

My List:

  1. Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie-by Alan Bradley. If you haven`t read this one then your are totally missing out, great mystery combined with one of my most favourite characters ever- Flavia!
     2.   Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Yes, I love Twilight and I``m not afraid to type it. I re-read this book every year. (sometimes twice a year) It`s a perfect book to escape in, and great for the beach.

     3. Anything by Charlaine Harris. Though I think Dead until Dark stands out above the rest

     4. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. James Fraser says it all.

     5. North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley. A  lovely contemp read.

     6. Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Lousie Rennison. This is a series I truly wish was out when I was a teenager. I laughed my a** off.

     7. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han. I`ve yet to read this series but its next in my pile. from the reviews I`ve read its the perfect summer beach read.

    8. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Anne Brashares. Summer + Friendship + Boys

    9.  Carol O`Connell`s Kathleen Mallory Series. AMAZING Mystery series,

   10. Harry Potter - I can not wait for the movie to come out, but I`m sad that it will be over. I plan to re- read these this summer.


  1. Awww yay for Jamie :o) I love him. I'm re-reading the series now, it's the best. I put the Sookie Stackhouse books on my list too!

  2. The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson are hilarious. The reason I started reading those were because of the awesome titles. I mean, Knocked Out by my Nunga Nungas? *giggle*

  3. Ahh I can't wait for you to read The Summer I Turned Pretty! You already know how much I love these books :-)

  4. I'll have to add a few of these to my bag of books.

  5. Awesome choices! I love the Summer books, and 'North of Beautiful' is one of my favourites. The Georgia books are just too funny. I started reading them in high school, and I think I definitely liked them even more back then.

    My Top Ten

  6. I want to read Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging now. It's been on at least three lists already. Awesome!

  7. Charlaine Harris is a good choice, her books are such easy going. I keep meaning to start the Aurora Teagarden mysteries but I made the mistake of buying the omnibus which is a brick of a hardback! Not so becah friendly :)

  8. I wonder if the second mystery in the Sweetness at the Bottom series is as good as the first book....Great choice for a summer read.

    Here's my list of books I plan to put in my beach bag this summer.

  9. Great list - Charlaine Harris is a really good choice, they're so quick and fun to read and there's enough of them to last a while. You have a couple of books on your list that I really want to try too.
