*Top Ten Tuesday* Beach Reads


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Joood - Hooligan of Platypire reviews bossed me into doing this, so I guess this is a thing I do now. 

This weeks theme is books to read at the beach (or pool). Now, I don't live anywhere near a beach, and my children do not know how to swim yet, so you won't find me reading by a pool any time soon, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to feature some books that will transport me to the beach.


White Sand, Blue Sea by Anita Hughes


One to See Me by Alicia Maxwell


Lighthouse Beach by Shelley Noble


The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews


The Summer Sail by Wendy Francis


Temptation Bay by Anna Sullivan


Miramar Bay by Davis Bunn


The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski


Nothing by Linda Naseem


A Season of You by Emma Douglas

So there you go. Ten books I can read to transport me to the beach any time I want. Who needs teleportation when you have books? 

Are there any books you'll be reading at the beach or by the pool this summer? - Katie

    1. I wonder if I could convince my husband I deserve a summer vacation by myself so I could read them on an actual beach. LOL.

    1. I'm kind of ashamed to admit that this is the first time I've used him in photos...I'll definitely have to find a way to fit him in more often.

  4. You can come visit me in Cali, and we can read on the beach together. I can also introduce you to Anita Hughes. She’s my mother in law’s friend.

    1. Right. I saw the theme and figured I could probably find ten books on my shelves that would fit (I actually found more than ten so I had to limit myself). Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  10. I love that Aquaman POP! These books fit the theme perfectly! Great list!

  11. Aquaman is perfect for this week!! I haven't read any of these, but they seem like the perfect beach reads. I'm super curious about The Summer After You + Me now!

  12. I love the juxtaposition of those sunny, fun covers and the stern, disapproving face of Aquaman! Too cute!

    1. I hadn't even noticed that. He was just my only prop that seemed appropriate for a beach theme (I should really get ahold of some seashells or something.)

    1. Right! And if I wasn't so far behind on my TBR list, maybe I could dive in.

  14. I really want to read The Summer After You and Me! I've seen it floating around the blogosphere. I recently finished The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls. It was the perfect summer read!

    1. Oh, I'll have to check that one out, if I ever find the time to even make a dent in my current TBR (or you know, just keep it in the back of my mind in case I catch it on sale on Amazon.)

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  16. Love these pictures! They already transport me to the beach, so I can only assume the books will do the same :) And yay, Aquaman!

    1. Oh yay. I'm so glad I succeeded at imitating the beach for my pics...I was a little worried about that since I live by the mountains in Colorado.

  17. I was totally distracted by your Aquaman funko pop. Very cute. These all see on the dot when it comes to beach reads.

    1. Note to self: Incorporate more Funkopop's on the blog. Apparently they're a hit.

  18. Yay Aquaman! I love books that transport us places we're unable to go. Great list!

  19. All of these covers look so summer-y and beach perfect. :)

    ...also, your Funko pop looks too cute.

    Happy summer reading - and thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland.

    1. I wonder if I could convince my husband to create a little beach in our backyard...(probably not because he'd just complain about all the sand getting into the house.)

  20. I love your list! All the covers fit perfectly with this week's theme. I love being transported via books. We can go anywhere!

    1. I keep him locked away in a lead-lined box except for special occasions...LOL. Okay, not really a lead-lined box, but I do have a chest full of Funkos and my other photo props that I've collected. Thanks for stopping by. - Katie
