Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
So here is my definition of a beach read: mind candy. I don’t want anything in the way of emotional upheaval, and I just want to laugh a little. My brain doesn’t want to have to work hard to process anything. So here are my top ten beach reads, in no particular order.
This book is like a rom-com on acid, and there’s some unexpected scifi undertones that get tossed in as well. It’s a rollicking good read that requires you to turn your brain off to believe everything.
These books are such guilty pleasures for me, mostly because I find the male lead ridiculously attractive. If there was ever a beach read…
It’s like the Bachelor + Disney Princesses + mind glitter. I have to be in the right mood for these books, and beach reading sounds like a good option.
A cutesy rom-com that takes place in London. I rest my case.
If there was ever mind candy, it’s a supernatural fighting girl with a tendency towards pink, glitter and leopard print. The main character is so ridiculous sometimes I can’t even take her, but she makes me happy inside on so many levels.
6. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Alright, this is kinda cliche because this is a mermaid beach read hahaha. But still. This book is great fun, and I love the main character, and the fact that it’s a mermaid book is kinda perfect.
Okay, this book isn’t really mind candy as much as my favorite ya contemporary ever. But…you should still read it, so.
Funny, sarcastic, beautiful mind candy that makes me so so happy when I just GLIMPSE the COVERS.
Absolutely none of my best top ten lists are complete without this book. It is the best of everything.
She was the first author who made me think ya contemporary romances could be worth reading. Perfect romantic mind candy.
