Top 10 Books for the Beach this summer

Image from The Broke and the Bookish

Since I live beside the sea, I suppose that in one way or another, all of my reading is on or at least near the beach. Here then are ten books that I plan to read this summer, in no particular order!

1) The War that Ended Peace- Margaret MacMillan (Currently about 1/2 way through this)

2) The Last Runaway- Tracy Chevalier 

3) Z: A novel of Zelda Fitzgerald- Therese Anne Fowler

4) Washington: A Life- Ron Chernow (to be completed as well)

5) I Am Rembrandt's Daughter- Lynn Cullen 

6) Paradise Lost- John Milton 

7) First Family: Abigail and John Adams- Joseph Ellis

8) Juliet- Anne Fortier 

9) Emma- Jane Austen

10) Research... whatever form this may take as new stories emerge!

Join me tomorrow when I begin a look at classic literary debuts, in preparation for the countdown to my debut of Across the River.

My best to you all,


  1. Great picks! I had never heard of the Zelda Fitzgerald novel, though I may have to check it out. I absolutely love the cover. :)

  2. Thanks! I've heard a lot of good things about it and haven't read it yet, so put it on the list :)
