Today's Topic:

Top Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag
This is actually a really good topic for me because I'm leaving for the beach this weekend.  It's going to be so much fun, and I was having trouble figuring out which books to bring, because honestly, can I just bring my whole bookshelf?  But here is what I've narrowed it down to.

1: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare Yes, I just finished reading this whole series, but I really want to go back and re-read the series and see what I missed and make new connections.  I also want to re-read TID because I flew through that series so fast and didn't really take time to appreciate and remember it.


#2: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson I read this book last summer and let's just say I wasn't a fan.  But then a few months ago when I was battling the Arctic cold that was our winter, I kept on thinking of how badly I wanted to read this book again.  So I had mom get it for my birthday, and I'm going to read it (and hopefully love it) this summer.

#3: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey I'm sensing a theme here.  Most of these books are re-reads.  Actually, technically this isn't a re-read because I couldn't even get half-way through when I first tried to read it.  But, since everyone loves this book, and it's being made into a movie, I figure I have to give it another try.

#4: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick Hey what do ya know, another re-read.  I read this book at the end of summer last year...and it was one of my favorite books of the year, and of all time.  Such an amazing book with a perfect romance and amazing writing.  I freaking love this book!!

#5: What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen Really, I want to read all of Sarah Dessen's books.  I own 7 of them, and I hope to read them all.  A few are re-reads, but a few are new, like this book.

#6: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins Yes I am the only person in the world who hasn't read this book. I am extremely ashamed.  I've heard so many amazing things about it and I can't wait to read it, preferably at a beach.

#7: Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts This is kind of a random one because "summer reading" doesn't really come to mind when you think of it.  But ever since I got this book like 5 months ago it's been staring at me from my bookshelf with little puppy eyes saying "read me, read me".  So I'll read it haha

#8: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick Yes, another re-read.  But this book is really special.  It's one of the first paranormal books I ever read when I started getting obsessed with YA books.  I remember Nightshade (by Andrea Cremer) being my first one, and then I snuck this one home from the library because I thought my mom didn't want me reading it (she didn't care haha).  But I read it a few years ago and I can't really remember much, so I want to re-read this and the sequel, Crescendo.

#9: The Maze Runner by James Dashner This one has been sitting on my shelf for a long time, both my brothers have read it, and the movie will be coming out in the fall/winter.  Need I say more?  I have to read it!

#10: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead I want to read this book and then continue on with the series.  I loved Vampire Academy so I can't wait to see what goes down in these books!!!
So, that's my Top Ten.  I want to see what your Top Ten is!
Link it below!!


  1. Hope you enjoy Anna and the French Kiss - such a fun book!

    Great top ten :)

  2. Second Chance Summer is one of my all time favorite contemporaries! I'm so glad you're giving it another shot. The Bloodlines series is one of my favorites, too. I think it's even better than the VD series. Awesome picks :)

  3. Great books! I loved Anna and the French Kiss and Second Chance Summer is a wonderful and emotional read. Have fun reading these books!
