 Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists!

This Week’s Topic: Top 10 Beach Reads:
1. The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller
The Summer I Became a NerdLight and fun read, but loved the characters – perfect stand alone book for any day by the beach!
2. The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst
The Marriage Bargain (Marri... This book is hot and steamy, which makes a great beach read-plus it will make you laugh untily our stomach hurts, and the great writing doesn’t  hurt at all – def one to check out!
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French KissWhat is not more summer than a boy and girl falling in love in Paris? Top that off with the characters Anna and the Oh So Charming St. Clair and it’s a winner – you won’t want to put it down, so grab your beach chair, put on your SPF and get ready to read!
4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Lola and the Boy Next Door ...I couldn’t include the first without the second – if you are a fan of Stephanie Perkins, you know one cannot go without the other. This portrays the story of a dreamy boy next door – who ends up giving the girl of his dreams the stars – “swoon”!! Again, get comfortable, it’s a one sit reader so SPF up, grab that chair, and enjoy!
5. Summer Days by Susan Mallery
Summer Days (Fool's Gold, #7)I spent a great deal of my summer in this sleep town called Fool’s Gold last year and getting to know these characters and I cannot reccommend them enough. While any book can be stand alone, with wonderful writing and romance, the bigger picture is the best – you become invested in their little community – warning here: it can be addictive – you can become the nosy neighbor via print. So tread with caution, but enjoy!
6. Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren
Beautiful Bastard (Beautifu... This book is a hot, one day read when you need it, nothing but fun and utter hotness! Every girl needs at least one of these each year – so relax and enjoy!!
7. The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
The Lucky OneTrue to my form, I had to add one of my favorite summer reads – any Nicholas Sparks. For some reason this has been on my mind, so i went with it – the vibe is sort of summer and unlike some of the books it doesn’t end in total tragedy – so if you haven’t experienced his writing yet, check it out today!
8. Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Awaken (Awaken, #1)i’ve included a lot of fluff so here’s something with some thought. I read this book about 2 years ago before Dystropian really hit the market and LOVED it, so if you want ot know what’s hot in Teen lit these days, take a walk on the wild side and i promise you’ll love it – the characters and the writing are great and the story isn’t too keep. Best part of all, if you get really invested there are more books to come!
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent (Divergent, #1)Same with this story – it’s a great meaning, but not too deep and has some great meat to the story, plus some hot love stuff – I think the femaales are tough and I like that and Four is The movie is coming out next year, so be prepared, check it out – see what all the hype is about! You won’t be sorry!
10. City Of Bones by Cassandra Claire
City of Bones (The Mortal I...Besides being an AMAZING book, it’s the great start to an even better series. And it’s coming to theaters in August, so see what the hype is about so you can properly swoon for the lead guy when he hits the scene – Clary and Jace – endless love – Edward and Bella on another level plus some really cool action where Clary actaul gets to fight other than in the lat book – it got an A plus from me – so check it out and let me know what you think.
So why did I chose these books? In one way or another, they all let you escape reality in some way. My favorite beach books are the type that let you immerse yourself in these beautiful worlds and just relax and forget all the tough stuff you’re going through for just a little bit – lay in the sun and read and forget the world outside of that.
Do you have any suggestions? If so – let me know – any thoughts on mine, speak your mind! I want to hear from you!!
If you have a blog, please participate, if you don’t just write your answers below- anyone can be part of the fun!
So until next Tuesday – get reading and talking! See you back next Tuesday same time!
