Hey there! Welcome to this month's Book Chat! The topic for this month's chat seemed fairly obvious to me, because it's definitely that time of year: Beach Reads time!

I love me a good list, and Beach Reads lists often hit on a number of things I don't *generally* read, but crave during the summer.

Beach Reads can mean totally different books to different people, but I tend to reach for books that are light, quick and fun, with super-engaging characters. Contemporary seems to place high on my summer lists (which is a rarity for me), and books set at a beach have an automatic pass onto the list... =D

Feel free to share what you look for in a beach read, and your recommendations for beachy, backyard summer reading in the comments, by creating your own video as a response, or as a blog post, which you can link up below!

Thanks for watching!

I recommend:
Paranormalcy series | Kiersten White
Anna & the French Kiss | Stephanie Perkins
Hex Hall | Rachel Hakins
Immortal Beloved series | Cate Tiernan
The Demon-Trapper's Daughter series | Jana Oliver
Spies & Prejudice | Talia Vance
Epic Fail | Claire LaZebnick
Prom & Prejudice | Elizabeth Eulberg
Babe in Boyland | Jody Gehrman
Tweet Heart | Elizabeth Rudnick

  1. Wonderful list. Though not a big fan of this genre I recently enjoyed Wish You Were Here by Victoria Connelly and can recommend it as a good albeit cheesy summer read.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
