What books should I read on the beach next week?

30 January 2018 | 3 Comments

We’re escaping the cold next week on a beach vacay, and I need to load up my eReader with books. I have more than enough non-fiction, so I don’t need more of those. What fiction books have you read lately?

I’m wrapping up Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan right now, and was thinking of downloading the Crazy Rich Asians books next. There’s also Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill, which recently won the Giller Prize.

Last year I read Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and loved it. I’m thinking of trying her Truly Madly Guilty. Have you read it? Thoughts? Any tips you have for great beach reads would be so appreciated!

    I had a beach vacation recently. A friend suggested I take a break from my usual literary diet and read nothing but easy romance novels. It was kinda great. I read (and recommend) Jennifer Cruisie’s Welcome to Temptation and Bet Me, Courtney Milan’s Trade Me, Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Rescue, and Jane Unlimited by Kristin Cashore. The last title is actually YA, not romance.

    Ooooh! I like the advice to switch up the genre. Great tip.

  3. Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine. Enjoy the beach!
