Title: Best Beach Reads?
Post by: JennaWren on June 27, 2012, 02:46 PM
Hey all! Can you help me? I'm putting together a list of best beach reads for my local paper. I'm looking for recommendations for adults and MG/YA.

Thanks!   :hearts

Jenna, I did my Top Ten MG Beach Reads a couple of weeks ago here: http://readatouille.blogspot.com/2012/06/top-ten-tuesday-middle-grade-beach.html


Beach Reads was the Top Ten Tuesday theme that week, so you can find links to all the bloggers who participated (YA and adult mostly) here: http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/2012/06/top-ten-books-id-recommend-as-good.html

Hope that helps!

I'm a huge fan of Kristan Higgins and all her books are set in seaside communities: Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, the coast of Maine. These are sweet, funny romances for adults. My favorite so far is: My One and Only.

I think The Girl Who Chased the Moon or Garden Spells, both by Sarah Addison Allen, would be great beach reads (adult).
