This feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish once a week and it’s loads of fun. This week’s topic:
Top Ten Beach Reads!
For me, a great beach read is one that doesn’t require a lot of focus. I don’t know about you, but the handful of times that I’ve actually been on a beach I was distracted constantly. Maybe if I lived closer to the shore rather than in the middle of the desert I would be used to the hustle and bustle of the place. As it stands now, the only books that I’ve managed to keep my attention off of the beautiful ocean were fun and light – no hardcore fantasies for this girl in the sand, I wouldn’t get past the first page.
All of these appealed to me because, you guessed it, they were FUN. My favorite on the list is probably Dealing with Dragons (note the Dragon Obsession category in my menu) but it’s more than just a love for dragons that draws me to that series – it is also a great fairytale and adventure. It’s one of those that you pick up again and again over the years and eventually share with your kids.
Any of these make your list? :-)
