Beach Reads Week — top ten great beach reads, ten books I plan to read on the beach, ten beach reads for those who don’t like typical ~beach reads~, ten authors who are my go-to for beach reads, etc.
Since there are no beaches here in hot ass Arizona, I am going to do:
Ten Books I Would Like To Read Poolside.
1.) Thirty Days To Thirty – Courtney Psak.
2.) Big Little Lies – Liane Moriarty.
3.) Along For The Ride – Sarah Dessen.
4.) The Unexpected Everything – Morgan Matson.
5.) Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Mindy Kaling.
6.) Yes Please – Amy Poehler.
7.) A Midsummer’s Nightmare – Kody Keplinger.
8.) Flat-Out Love – Jessica Park.
9.) Firecracker – David Iserson.
10.) Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour – Morgan Matson.
Some of these books I have had on my shelf for over a YEAR!!!
I hope to get to them before the summer is over…And for Arizona,
that will probably be around October! 😯 So I have a while before
I need to either read them, or get rid of them… 😐

Sarah Dessen reminds me of my high school days over 10 years ago and her contemporaries are perfect for the summer!
Oh I love you list so much!!! The ones I have read I have loved – Big Little Lies, both of the Matson books, Yes Please, and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? I do want to read Thirty Days to Thirty. Great picks!!
Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour is one I want to read! I keep seeing it floating around and I have a feeling I’d really enjoy it if I gave it a go!
I loved both Big, Little Lies and the Mindy Kaling book. Those are great beach reads! Unexpected Everything is on my TBR as well. I can’t wait to read that one! Great list.
Mindy Kaling ❤ LOVED her books! It's like talking to your best friend. Great list 🙂
If you can get your hands on it, I’d highly recommend the audiobook version of Yes Please. Amy Poehler narrates most of it herself, but she also has some guest narrators who are awesome!
I actually do have the audiobook! I totally forgot! 😐 I’ll have to give it a listen! 😀
Ohh great choices! I can’t wait to read the new Morgan Matson book, all of her books make me feel like it’s summer already, and I really WANT it to be summer, right now, ahah 🙂
Big Little Lies was my favorite read in 2015. I hope you enjoy it!
Morgan Matson’s books are perfect for the beach, sorry, poolside haha. They’re great summer reads, hope you enjoy! I really want to read Amy Poehler’s book too, everyone seemed to love it. Great list, have a good summer! 🙂
You too! 😀
you do have all that nice desert though 😉 My TTT
But the heat gets over powering!
I have the audiobook of Yes Please and I feel like that would be a great one to listen to by the beach! Thanks for the inspiration!
Great choices 🙂 So many of these look like books I’d love!
Great picks 😀
Along for the Ride is one of the Sarah Dessen books I still need to read but if it’s anything like her others I know I’ll love it 🙂
And I pretty much have all of Morgan Matson’s books on my summer TBR list. All these picks, and everyone’s TTT I’ve seen so far, is making me really excited for the summer!
Just a warning–Big Little Lies is impossible to put down, so make sure you’ve got plenty of cold drinks and sunscreen handy so you don’t have to put it down to fetch more! 😀 I don’t think I read it all in one sitting but it was very close. It’s just such a compulsive page-turner and the ending is a shocker.
My TTT: Top Ten Tuesday: beach reads!
Yes! This just might be exactly what I need to get out of this putrid reading slump! I need a book that’s hard to put down! 🙂
I loved Big Little Lies- probably my favorite book of last year. I thought it was hilarious. And Flat Out Love- I just like that cover!
Oh I love Mindy Kaling! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me was a hoot 🙂
And of course Morgan Matson is amazing! I loved Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour and am also planning to read The Unexpected Everything soon!
And I heard a lot of great things about Sarah Dessen, but I’ve never read a book by her. SO I should get on that 🙂
Half of these books are also on my tbr pile.
Can’t wait to read them all. ^^
I really recommend Amy and Roger! Such a wonderful read!
I have Unexpected everything on my list this week as well and i hope it is even half as good as i found Amy and roger then the book will be wonderful as well!
Great list 🙂
I hope you to them all during your summer and that you have great time reading them 🙂
My TTT: https://booksbeautifylife.blogspot.de/2016/05/top-10-tuesday-beachsummer-reads-tbr.html
Thanks! You too! 🙂
Sarah Dessen and Morgan Matson both write the best summer reads! I put Along for the Ride on my list as well, but really I coul have made my list up of entirely Dessen novels. Great list!
Thanks! Sarah Dessen is the BEST! 😀
oh man, Sarah Dessen books are the greatest summer reads! The only reason my list wasn’t completely comprised of her books was because I tried to stick to books from my tbr shelves. 🙂
I like your take on this week’s topic! I live near beaches, but I kind of hate the beach, so I won’t be going anyway. I really want to read Yes, Please! It looks awesome!
Here are my Top Ten!
I loved the Unexpected Everything! I still haven’t checked out any Morgan Matson books though.

I really want to pick up Mindy Kaling and Amy Poehler’s books. I’m not really a nonfitction reader, but those women are hilarious.
Yay for the Morgan Matson book love. I cannot believe I forget one by Sarah Dessen. I meant to include one of hers too since they all look like great beach reads. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland today.
So many great choices on your list! I loved Flat-Out Love and Along for the Ride. And Mindy is just fun all year round! 🙂
My TTT: http://www.anovelglimpse.com/2016/05/31/top-ten-tuesday-down-and-dirty-in-the-sand/
I also want to read The Unexpected Everything! It sounds cute and adorable, plus I love other Morgan Matson’s books <33 Also A Midsummer's Nightmare. It sounds funny 😀
I can’t wait to get to The Unexpected Everything. I’ve been holding off buying it until I’d finished a couple of books, but I’m so ready!
All girly books😍😍
Great TTT. I really need to read a lot of these. I plan to read the rest of Morgan Matson’s books this summer.
I really like your list, I still need to read most of them but I really liked Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour. I hope you get to read them all before the summer ends!
Joining in with the Big Little Lies praise such an awesome book addictive like Gone Girl but with characters you care about who aren’t horrible people being tormented by people who are even more horrrible.
And Money and Amy’s books are amazing and wonderful and funny I love them to pieces.
Sarah Dessen is a perfect choice for a beach read! Along For the Ride is one of my favorites. 🙂
Great list! I can’t wait to read The Unexpected Everything! ☀️
I really do need to read some Morgan Matson: I keep procrastinating even though I have most of her books! Great list 🙂
I love this list! I’ve only read Yes Please, but that is amazing. I want to read so many of these books!
The Unexpected Everything is EVERYWHERE! I need to pick that up ASAP 😀
ME TOO!!!! 😀
Ooh I really want to read Mindy Kaling’s and Amy Poehler’s books! They both seem like they’d be equally wonderful and hilarious.
I thoroughly enjoyed Flat Out Love by Jessica Park, I hope you love it too!! And I’m really intrigued by The Unexpected Everything — that cover screams summer goodness!!
I LOVED Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour! So good! I really need to get The Unexpected Everything. I have loved all of Matson’s books that I have read so far. I also need to read Along for the Ride. I have several Sarah Dessen books that I still need to read. I hope you enjoy reading all of these!
I loved Is Anyone Hanging out With Me, that’s a great book for summer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Yes to all the Matson on you’re list! Happy Reading on the poolside 🙂
