Top Ten Books That Should Be in Your Beach Bag
1. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
A light YA contemporary set on the beach - perfect beach read. Almost any Sarah Dessen book is the perfect beach read, but I picked this one just because it is set on the beach.
2. One for the Money (Stephanie Plum #1) by Janet Evanovich
Light, hilarious with a touch of mystery. Plus, Lorelei King is one of the best narrators, and I can't imagine reading this series any other way.
3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy #1) by Douglas Adams
A fantastic sci-fi read that is at once silly and absurd but also a clever commentary on humans and life.
4. The Lost (The Lost #1) by Sarah Beth Durst
This one published on May 27, 2014, so it kicked off the summer reading. I loved it, and I'm sure this is going to be one of my favorites from this summer, if not the whole year.
5. The Line (Witching Savannah #1) by J.D. Horn
The second one in the series, The Source, comes out today, and if you haven't read The Line, then you should definitely check it out first.
6. Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15) by Jim Butcher
Skin Game came out on May 27, 2014, and I'm currently listening to it through Audible. It's a great addition to this fantastic urban fantasy series, and James Marsters as narrator is one of the reasons I love this series so much.
7. Banishing the Dark (Arcadia Bell #4)by Jenn Bennett
Banishing the Dark was published on May 27, 2014, and it was a great ending to the series. Jenn Bennet was one of my newly discovered urban fantasy authors this year, and I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the genre.
8. Partials (Partials Sequence #1) by Dan Wells
I started this series last summer and loved it. The last of the series, Ruins, was published in March of this year, and it was a great end. Plus, Julia Whelan narrates, who always does an amazing job.
9. Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles #1) by Kevin Hearne
I started this last summer and it quickly became a favorite urban fantasy series. The newest book, Shattered, will be published on June 17, 2014. The narrator is Luke Daniels, who is also one of my favorite narrators.
10. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
I read my favorite Gaiman book last summer, and I highly recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy, Gaiman or just books in general.
