Top Ten Tuesday #2: What’s in My Beach Bag

It’s another Top Ten Tuesday post!! I’m not sure if I’ll do this every week but I’m enjoying it so far so for now I will. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer

Well, I really don’t know what classifies a book as a beach read. I take it that beach reads are simply books a reader will most likely read at the beach but part of me thinks that reason is too simple and it must be something more. Well, if I were to go to the beach sometime this summer, here’s what I might carry:

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The synopsis sounds interesting and the book will be published this summer. I plan to get it as soon as it hits the shelves.

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

I’m slowly rereading the A Song of Ice and Fire series and it’s about time I reread this one. I’m taking it slow so that I complete A Dance of Dragons as close as possible to the release date of The Winds of Winter.

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

This book has appeared in a few newsletters I’m subscribed to and it’s made me curious to find out what it’s about.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

I bought this one a while back and I want to get to it this summer.

You by Caroline Kepnes

Lindsey Rey, a booktuber, discussed this book in one of her roundup videos and I’ve wanted to read it ever since. It’s highly unsettling.

The Circle by Dave Eggers

I’ve wanted to read this book since it came out but never got around to it.

The Martian by Andy Weir

I heard it’s hilarious and filled with curse words so…yeah.

The Book of Night Women by Marlon James

This is a favorite and I’ve wanted to reread it for some time now.

Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan

Expected since I’m slowly making my way through the series.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

It’s been on my shelf for a while now so I think it’s about time I got to it.

What do you plan to read this summer?

  1. You’ve got some nice choices there! I liked A Discovery Of Witches and A Clash Of Kings, so I hope you like them too. The Name Of The Wind is still sitting on my bookshelf unread; hopefully I can get to that this year.


    1. Yea, I hope so too. I’ve heard great things about A Discovery of Witches. A Clash of Kings will be a reread but I hope my enjoyment of it remains the same like with Game of Thrones.
      Fingers crossed that we both read The Name of the Wind this year. 🙂

  2. “A “beach read “can be something you don’t need to follow intensely, or you can be interrupted while reading, or is light and fluffy (not too, it will blow away :-D)
    Can i change my least like to read there!!!
    1-a funeral
    2-the beach
    3-the toilet
    Thanks for the post 🙂

    1. Oh so that’s what a beach read is.
      Hate to read on the beach?! You’re not alone in feeling that way since some of the bloggers who did this post also dislike reading on the beach.


        1. Thanks for the warning. I’ll see when I read it. I usually like the first in a series though so it’s highly possible I’ll think the same.
