|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.|
This week's theme was to pick books that are perfect for beach/summer reading. I grew up on the coast, and Mariela isn't too terribly far from a really nice beach area herself, so we definitely have a good beach book or two that we can recommend :)
I am going to be honest, I don't remember a whole heck of a lot about this book. I do remember it was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it a lot. Enough that I bought the sequel in hardcover as soon as it came out, something I NEVER do for romance novels. Of course, that was well over a decade ago. There is one scene that comes to mind, that involves the heroine getting shot at on the beach and her running away serpentine-style and getting teased about it by the hero.
This one is probably a little more action-packed than a beach read would warrant. But it does happen in an amazing beautiful cove, with lots of boats and beaches, so I am gonna say it works.
This one has lots of action and shooting, plus it tosses in some magic in there! But Sea Haven is a gorgeous place to read about, perfect for the beach!
While this book doesn't have anything to do with the beach, the lead girl is an Olympic diver, so there is some water involved. Mostly, this book just evokes a strong sense of summer and is a pretty great romance! It was actually my very first straight-up romance!
This one doesn't have anything at all to do with summer, the beach or water. BUT! Meg Cabot is an amazingly hilarious writer, so anything by her is perfect for taking along on a carefree day on the beach!
I read this one when I went to the beach and it was the perfect read while laying by the sea! I super loved this series!
I super duper loved this book!
