Top Ten Seven Beach Reads

No offence, but I don’t go the beach to read. This was a hard list for me, because I don’t read at the beach and I have no idea what other people would read at the beach to compare and find the same genre. So I’ve put in this list fun, light books that are quick and easy to read. Wouldn’t want to get sunburnt after all that non-swimming at the beach and everything.


1. Merrow – Louise Cooper
It’s about a mermaid. Kind of. It’s creepy, from what I remember.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

2. Divergent – Veronica Roth
It’s a fun, quick read, despite being such a big book. There’s a lot of white space, and you don’t have to think too hard to enjoy it. In fact, if you really start thinking about it you’ll unravel all the plot holes.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

3. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
It’s a totally mad ride but the quiet, peaceful parts where Katniss is looking for food are quite soothing. But it may make you cry when sad stuff happens – you’ve been warned!

Going Too Far

4. Going Too Far – Jennifer Echols
It’s an intense romance read that I devoured in about a day, so perfect for the beach, yes?

New Girl

5. New Girl – Paige Harbison
Shrugs. I had fun reading this. I like mean girl stories.


6. Preloved – Shirley Marr
A sweet, fluffy romance, perfect for relaxing on the beach!

If I Stay

7. If I Stay – Gayle Forman
I’m really struggling with this list, so let’s just leave it here, OK?
