My Top Ten Books Set at the Beach!

This week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt wants to know: What are your favorite stories set in X setting (meaning, choose your own setting).  Since it's summertime, and I read a lot of contemporaries, I had to go with beach settings!  I think I've read a few books set there, hehe.

Be sure to check out the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this weekly feature.

  1. I don't read that many contemporary, but I do love books set at the beach! And I loved Wanderlove and My Life Next Door! I should add some of these to my TBR list. Great list! ~Pam

  2. The first one was already on my TBR, but I haven't heard of the other books. Definitely going to check them out!

  3. Fantastic list! I also focused on the beach for my TTT this week. I included On the Island, Summer I Turned Pretty, and Along for the Ride. I forgot to include Moonglass and My Life Next Door- loved both of those books! It seems we have the same taste in books, so I will have to move Something Like Normal up on my TBR list.

  4. I love contemporary books! I must check out some of the ones on your list!

  5. Love beach reads! I really need to read Moonglass and My Life Next Door!

  6. You would! Love 'em all. Going to see my library has On the Island now!

  7. Great list! I actually forgot My Life Next Door takes place at the beach. I've read all of them except Raw Blue (which my library doesn't have, lame) and Wanderlove which I have but, for some unknown reason, haven't picked up (also lame).

  8. I love how The Summer I Turned Pretty is on every single list. That series killed me.

  9. Finally! Someone else who did a list on books set at a beach! I have Along for the Ride on my own list, but you've got some books on here that I want to read now: My Life Next Door and Wanderlove. Great list :)

  10. I'm excited-- I have read and loved 5 of these! Such a Rush, On the Island, and Something Like Normal are some of my all-time favorites. Yay for beach books! I think I need to read these others that you mentioned since we seem to have similar taste in beach books! Maybe I'll save them until winter when I need to feel like I'm on a warm vacation. Haha

  11. The beach is such a great setting. Shockingly, I haven't read any of these! Clearly I need to remedy that.

  12. Great picks. Without a doubt, my favorite is On the Island.

    My TTT.

  13. How in the world have I not yet read Where the Stars Still Shine? I think it's one of those books that I'm teasing myself with - once I read it, I've read it, and I don't want to have to wait, hah! But I've loved every book on this list I've read! And of course I immediately want to go re-read Wanderlove...
