Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten beach reads...

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison (my review)
A hilarious  and fun book. Definitely my first choice.

Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman (my review)
This was a really fun book too and it will make you glad to be at the beach and not crammed in this tiny workplace.

The Boy Book by e. Lockhart (my review)
A really great series. This is book two, which I just now noticed, but regardless read them all at the beach.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (my review)
I think this has enough in it to keep you at the beach long enough to get a fantastic tan.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Cathrynne M. Valente (my review)
Love this story and it's perfect for the outside.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (my review)
Another book with a lot going on that will keep you engrossed.

And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky (my review)
A fun, but semi-serious read. Something a little bit heartier.

A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger (my review)
Really, any of Kody's books would work. This one takes place during the summer though.

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (my review)
Deserted Island = great beach read, right?!

The Jumbee by Pamela Keyes (my review)
This is another amazing novel and it takes place in the Caribbean, so...yeah. 

The Broke and the Bookish is a group of college aged and twenty somethings that have an unhealthy obsession with reading and would spend every last penny on books even if it meant skipping a few meals. We are the people  who lurk in the library, buy handbags based on how many books can be stashed in them, and who refer to characters in books as if they are personal friends.
We sought after other bookish college students to share in our love for reading and were brought together by the College Students group on Goodreads that was created in September 2008. Our desire to share great books with each other in and our tendency to be opinionated and passionate about all things book related naturally led to the birth of The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.


  1. LOVE these picks! I totally forgot about A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHTMARE and BEAUTY QUEENS.

  2. Yes to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Shatter Me! Those would make such great beach reads :)
