Teaser and Top Ten Tuesday (#14) 06/11/13


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

She reeked of days-old sweat and chickens.  I wished I could shove her out of the train.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Beach Reads

Some of these were covered in last week's topic, so there will be some repeated, but that usually means they were worth it.  When compiling my list, I realized there are a bunch of books coming out this summer that would totally fit this category, I just haven't read them yet!

All I Need by
Although It's not my favorite book, it was fun, and screams beach read to me. 

The Moon and More by
My required Sarah Dessen book.  This is all about the beach.

This Is What Happy Looks Like by
Although it takes place in Maine, and the beach is mentioned, it's much more than a beach book.  But I'm tossing it in anyway.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by
As I mentioned last week, this screams the beach and summer.  Wonderful series.

Second Chance Summer by
Yes it takes place at a lake, but the lake does have a beach, so I am totally including it.
Endless Summer (The Boys Next Door #1-2) by
Like the book above, it takes place at the lake, but once again there most definitely is a beach. 
The Au Pairs (The Au Pairs #1) by
Before there were vampires, there were the Au Pairs.  Good trashy Hamptons fun.

The A-List (A-List #1) by
I may have mentioned this series is a guilty pleasure.  So much fun, and so many beach scenes. 

Playing Hurt by
Back to the lake for this book. I love this book, and I want more people to read it. 
One Moment by
This is really a stretch.  It's not even a lake or the ocean.  But it is a swimming hole with a beach, so on the list it goes.  It got mixed reviews, but I actually really liked this book.

    My teaser

  6. Great choices. I loved Second Chance Summer, I couldn't read the end of it on a beach though, it's a heartbreaker and I prefer to sob in private!
