Top Ten Tuesday, a concept started by The Broke and the Bookish, is a themed post that connects bloggers to bloggers, bloggers to readers, and readers to readers. Every Tuesday has a special topic, and this Tuesday is Top Ten Books That Should Be in Your Beach Bag.
I don’t quite understand the concept of reading light, fluffy books in the summer and heavy, literary books in the winter. Maybe it makes sense…Dickens and Tolstoy somewhat on the dark side. When we attended school, summer was meant as a break and therefore our brains could rest a bit. But now that we’re adults, and there’s no such thing as a three-month long summer vacation, why continue to stay seasonal? Read what you want to read when you wanna read it! I’m notorious for revisiting Jane Austen in the summer and sticking to the Gothic in the winter, so maybe I shouldn’t speak…
Anyway, these are some books I’d highly recommend you take to the beach, to the mountains, to the lake, to your local park!
Southern autumn/winter setting, but feels so summery. Plus it’s filled with action and ninja-fighting skills!
A summer trip to Europe completely changes Allyson’s life. It’s gonna fill you with longing and wanderlust!
Smart, talented Vicky and her wild summer with art and suffragettes will fill you with feminist pride.
Set in 1950s England in a rather marshy area, this chilling and creepy novel will keep you up at night!
(ARC) Currently reading, and love the multiple POVs. It’s 19th-cent Austo-Hungarian Hapsburg, which is a rare find. Pub date: July 29.
Country music tour. Summer romance. Mending broken souls. Oh, and Matt Finch. *swoon*
WWI and WWII collide in this entirely epistolary novel set in the Scottish island Skye. Phenomenal read.
Morton’s work has improved with each publication, but her debut still holds something near and dear to my heart.
Who would I be without adding satirical Jane and her contribution to the Gothic genre? You jokester, you.
I just don’t understand why this isn’t getting more attention, because Redwine and this book are PHENOMENAL contributions to the SFF genre!
What books should I add to my bag this summer? Have you read any of these books?
