Ten YA Books That Should Be In Your Beach Bag This Summer

Top Ten Tuesday, as  always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish

This week’s topic: Top Ten Beach Reads For YA Readers  — for the contemporary readers

beach reads for teens and YA readers

(come back next week for a post on YA books to stash in your beach bag if you aren’t into contemporary reads and then adult fiction books the next week)

I’ve done a bunch of these lists throughout the years so I’m not going to include any that I’ve included in past years so you should DEFINITELY check those out because they are some of my all time FAVE beach reads — here & here.

Basically a TLDR for you for the above links: pack everything by Jessi Kirby, Stephanie Perkins, Sarah Dessen, Morgan Matson, Jennifer E. Smith and Jenny Han and you will be GOLDEN. There are other recs in there too but these are my most reliable beach read authors in YA. Perfect mix of light and not so light elements that are just SO compulsively readable.

Anyways, on to another 10 YA books I’ve read since those lists that I think should be in your beach bag!

What Will Be In MY Beach Bag This Year + A Few Recs For YOURS!

Top Ten Tuesday, as  always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish

This week’s topic: You could choose between top ten books in MY beach bag for this summer or top ten books that should be in YOUR beach bag. I’m going to do BOTH because YAY beach reads + it is important to have the right ones to accompany you! You can also check out my YA beach reads list from last year (which also links to another list I made!)

beach reads for teens

The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes: I’ve heard from everyone this one is adorbs so YEP perfect beach read.
Behind The Scenes by Dahlia Adler: Hollywood drama! Yes please!
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: Everyone says this is a Jamie book. I must read it finally!
Brazen by Katherine Longshore: This said for fans of Reign (AND I AM!!). Scandalous royal drama! Perfect for a beach day!
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simison: An adult fiction book for my beach read list! My friend Jen sent this to me and I know she adored it!
Nantucket Red by Leila Howland: I really enjoyed Nantucket Blue and this will be a perfect beach read for me!
On the Fence by Kasie West: I love Kasie’s books and this boy next door story always gets me because I totally had a boy next door situation but instead of talking through our fences we’d talk in our driveways.
Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas: I think The Book Barbies will kill me if I don’t read this soon and Raquel was sweet and made it very easy for me to by sending it to me!! An adult romance is a good choice for the beach bag!
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes: I just got this in the mail and I’m super excited about it. I love misfit stories and it seems cute and funny enough to take to the beach with me. I don’t know much about it so let’s hope it also isn’t a crying book because that’s awkward.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: This is the only Rainbow Rowell book I haven’t read and I hear it’s adorable! I’ve loved all 3 books I’ve read of hers thus far sooo here’s to hoping we are 4/4.
