It's that time of year again! The lazy days of summer are calling and so is the beach! What's on your favourites list to bring along with you?


message 2: by Marie (new)

Marie Definitively suggest What's it Gonna be? A romantic oomedy written by a Mauritian author and set in Mauritius. Funny, light-hearted with great dialogue and wonderful characters.


message 4: by Paul (new)

Paul van der Merwe Not fair! We're in winter down here in the Southern Hemisphere and the beach is still another few months away :-)


message 5: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia The Deep End by Julie Mulhern in the Country Club Mysteries (book 1) and Gretchen Archer's Book Double Whammy in the Davis Way Crime series, are two books that I would recommend to everyone, beach read or otherwise. Both are great stories and I am anxiously awaiting more books in each of these author's series.

Darlene Archangel's Shadows is listed twice here, 626 and 648

Devra Jacobs Inches Aren't Everything by Sarah B Daniels

MomToKippy Very little here seems beachy. The Metamorphosis - Franz Kafka???

I agree! A beach read, IMO, is light, fluffy, and entertaining, not deep, dark, or complex. I guess it all depends what people want when they go the beach!!!!!


message 10: by Devra (new)

Devra Jacobs That's why I like Inches Aren't Everything. Its fun and is a great story. Easy Beach Read Romance.


message 11: by Linsey (new)

Linsey D How can I search for a particular book?


message 12: by Devra (new)

Devra Jacobs At the top of the page just type in the title and click search. Its on the top of each page


message 13: by Michele (new)

Michele On the beach I'd rather it be great than fluffy or light.


message 14: by MomToKippy (last edited Sep 01, 2015 08:10AM) (new)

MomToKippy There is actually no way to search a particular list on GR.

Anything by Elin Hildebrandt.....Adrianne Lee.....Jessica Warman.....Barbara Delinsky.....James Patterson.....Daniel Palmer......Joseph Finder.....


message 16: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Goldstein I just finished the Louise Penny, Inspector Gamache, Three Pines Mysteries in time for the release of her new one. Every time I think I've figured one of them out she throws another wrench into the story.
A sweet beach read that will bring joy to your day is Frederik Backmans A Man Called Ove.
If you get through, those Barbara Delinsky is always a good author to put in your bag. Don't take anything serious with me because the view at Siesta is sometime too beautiful to do anything but gaze and dream.
