This is basically my list of cute YA contemps I would love to read all over again for the first time on a beach. And while I haven't read any of her books, Sarah Ockler seems to have some summer contemp books that readers seem to love (they're all on my TBR!). Also gotta give a shout out to Morgan Matson and Jessi Kirby and their awesome books. And yes I just realized I could've used one of their books instead of using 2 books for the same author but oh well...

What are some of your favorite beach type reads?
Any from my list that you've read or plan to read?


  1. Aww The Summer I Turned Pretty and To All the Boys I've Loved Before is also on my list, but I forgot to include them.. too many good books!!!!

    This is such a great list! I really liked Anna and the French Kiss♥

  2. Sarah Dessen just always hits the spot!

  3. Oh, quite a few on your list made my list! The Distance Between Us, The Start of Me and You, Open Road Summer and the TATBILB sequel. I have both of Lauren Barnholdt's Two Way Street/Right Of Way companion novels! I should read them this summer.

    My favorite summery reads are romances and mysteries. I read We Were Liars just as fall was really setting in and it was still warm out. It had the same affect on me. :) I want to read the Pretty Little Liars series (minus the first two that I've read) because they seem like the perfect combination between light and mystery. :)

    Okay, I'm not sure what html code to use, but I'll give this one a spin and hope it works!

    Hopefully my TTT
