Top Ten Tuesday: Beach reads



It's beach season (or pool season for those of us in Montreal). But regardless of whether you are toasting your toes on the sand or tanning on the boiling concrete, here's my top ten beach reads for this 2016 summer.

The Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne

This book won a few awards for its thrilling plot story, and the goosebumps you'll get from reading it might be a great way to keep cool on the sand. 

Bad Karma by David Safier

I recommend this one to chick-lit fans. There's character growth, laugh out loud moments, and irresistible characters that make karma fun to experience. 

Along for the ride by Sarah Dessen

A heartfelt story that takes place in a small town during summer. 

Sculptor by Scott McCloud

Because it's great to meditate by the waves. It has romance, action, plot twists... this graphic novel has it all. 

A thousand nights by E. K. Johnston

The desert gives a nice setting to this book, and I can't think of a better place than to read this on the beach with a nice cool drink. 

The red tent by Anita Diamant

My first bible retelling so far. I enjoyed seeing the biblical characters through different eyes. The author did try to keep the story as realistic as possible. Also a desert setting.

Dear Emma by Katie Heaney

A romance for the brokenhearted. This novel answers so many relationship questions such as ''why didn't he call me back?'' without turning into a self-help book. 

We were liars by E. Lockhart

My final pick for the beach has to be this small novel from Lockhart. Although, it's not her typical high school story, she make sure to add several plot twists and a warm small town feel that will make you wish you were on near the water. Oh wait, you are!
