Top 10 Tuesday: Books for the Beach… or the Back Porch!

beach books sm

If you’re like me, you love reading on the beach!  (Also if you’re like me, you’re a poor grad school student who must settle for the back porch).  Whether you’re heading for the great outdoors or staying home this summer, make sure to check out this week’s link up at The Broke and the Bookish.

I should preface this post by saying some people like to read dark and scary thrillers by the beach.  I am NOT one of those people!  I like my beach reads to be more lighthearted, heartwarming, and/or humorous and witty.  There’s enough drama and darkness in everyday life without bringing it on vacation!  Without further ado, here’s some of my favorite go-to authors and (in my opinion) their best books to read by the beach:

 

5 Go-To YA Authors:

  • John Green
  • Ann Brashares
  • Sarah Dessen
  • Megan McCafferty
  • Deb Caletti

5 Go-To Adult Authors:

  • Liane Moriarty
  • Jennifer Weiner
  • Erin Hilderbrand
  • Sophie Kinsella
  • Emily Giffin
