Top Ten Books That Make Great Beach Reads

Top Ten Books That Make Great Beach Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’m recommending Top Ten Books that are great for the beach- or any vacation. When I travel I like to have books that are fun and compelling without being anxiety-inducing; I don’t like to read books with major cliffhangers when I travel because I want to be able to put it down and enjoy the activities I planned for my vacation, rather than having a major book-hangover or rushing back to the hotel room to finish a chapter. So these […]

(Lauren @ Bookmarklit may be the only one who truly understands the extent of this obsession). 2) Raffe from Angelfall– Witty banter abounds with Raffe. Coupled with his high ranking angel status and I was […]

May 11-17, 2015 Life This past month has been so busy, and now with graduation season upon us I’m out and about almost every weekend!
