Top Three Beach Reads

 
 
My favorite thing to do at the beach and the number one thing that relaxes me is reading a book. I'll curl up in a beach chair with a million SPF and read until I almost burn--then move under an umbrella and read some more. I've always been the bookworm in the family and my taste centers around girly-ish books.

Here are my most recent picks:

The Heiresses by Sara Shepard. (recommended by my mother) The same author that wrote Pretty Little Liars doesn't disappoint in this book. IT'S SO GOOD YOU CAN'T PUT IT DOWN! Mysterious deaths, plot twists, and high society. I hope she's writing a second book! I literally walked around the beach condo last weekend with my nose stuck in the book. I had to see what happened next!




The Cake Therapist by Judith Fertig. (this book stood out on the bookstore shelf because hello cake and it's just so colorful!) I just picked this book up on Monday and it's the book I'm currently reading (half way done with)  It simultaneously makes me relax and eat a dozen cupcakes! The main character can sense what flavors you need to feel better. Sounds like my kind of pastry chef.
 



Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews. Mary Kay Andrews is one of my favorite authors and this book is right on par with the rest of her books. It's an easy read with lots of action, romance, and duh the beach! I wish she could write books faster because I finish them in like a day (they are THAT good)!

  20. Oh I definitely want The Heiresses. I love anything that has plot twists and is mystery. I should be going away to the beach one weekend in August and I think this would be the best book to buy and take along with me. I agree.. I love to read at the beach! It's the only thing that relaxes me.. if not I'm up walking around figuring out what to do!
