Top Ten Tuesday: My Top Ten Beach Reads


Top Ten Tuesday is a brilliant book meme  hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week its out top ten beach reads. I have to say when packing for a holiday, I’m more excited about the books I’m going to bring then anything else! There has being many a time where my mum has had to tip books out of my suitcase because its just too heavy to get on the plane! For me, a typical beach read are books that I am just SO excited to read but haven’t yet – I save books for holidays. I also tend to read a couple of my favourite chick lit or romance-y type books as well.

  1. Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding – Every bit as funny as the movie, this book had me in stitches, and it’s perfect for a bit of beach reading!
  2. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella – Again, the perfect chick lit book. Light, funny and with a really hot leading man. I will definitely be bringing this on holiday this year
  3. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor – LOVED the first book, have had this one for far too long and I cannot wait to see what happens next for Karou
  4. A Clash of Kings by George R. R Martin – I read Games of Thrones last year – really loved it and have being meaning to start the next book in the series for ages!
  5. The Ocean at the End of The Lane by Neil Gaiman – I am SO excited for Mr Gaiman’s new book and will be picking it up as soon as it’s out.
  6. Scarlett by Marissa Meyer – LOVED Cinder, Scarlett looks amazing – a must read for me for this summer
  7. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – Shadow and Bone was AMAZING. I cannot wait to read more.
  8. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libbra Bray – I really enjoyed The Diviners, and I cannot wait to start this series – I’ve heard so many good things about it!
  9. Eragon, Eldest, Brisinger and Inheritance by Christopher Paolini – I started this series ages ago, and have never got round to finishing it. The first three are due a re-read, and I cannot wait to find out what happens in the end
  10. Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien – I’ve got myself a swanky new edition, so definitely need to re-read the trilogy!

What beach reads are you most looking forward too?

  1. I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Haven’t really read the second book, but I think it’s gonna be as good as the first 🙂 and Siege and Storm! Gosh I wanna read it! Shadow and Bone was THE BOMB. these are amazing picks 🙂

  2. I can’t wait to get my hands on Siege and Storm as well. I think all of Sophie Kinsella books are great beach reads. Confession of a Shopaholic is great for Luke alone.
