Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Summer/Beach Reads in 2018


Hello lovelies! It feels like forever ago since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday post. Anyway, this week’s topic is Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach so I’ll be listing 10 of my favorite summer/beach reads. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you probably know that I love swoony romances and contemporaries. While summer is not my favorite season (I love the cold weather), I definitely look forward to it all year for one reason — Summer makes me want to read lighthearted, fluffy, adorably cute contemporaries that always make me feel all kinds of happy and I absolutely love it.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of my favorite summer/beach reads. I’ll be listing 5 from this year, and 5 of my all time favorites.


The Game Can’t Love You Back by Karole Cazzo

Just One of The Royals by Leah and Kate Rooper

Love and Luck by Jenna Evans Welsch

Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley

Fraternize by Rachel Van Dyken




Royally Matched by Emma Chase

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You by Lily Anderson

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

So, what are some of your favorite summer or beach reads? What are some fun books you’re looking forward to reading this summer? Leave your comments and recommendations down below. Loved to hear from you.

Until the next TTT, have a wonderful day loves!!

  1. I agree! For me, summer is aaaalllll bout the lighthearted! So many of my own summer favorites here! Love Jenny Han, Rachel Van Dyken and Emma Chase! And Rainbow — I love her ANY time of the year! You are clearly my book soul mate and now I want to go add all of these others to my summer TBR!

  2. I’m so not a fan of summer either! I also don’t like winter…haha. Anyway, I love fluffy contemporaries and have been trying to read as many as I can! I haven’t read any on your list, so clearly I need to add more to my TBR list!! 🙂
