Guest Post: Beach Reads To Die For by Ya Reader

Today’s guest post comes from YA Reader from Mostly Reading YA , who at the moment is running a Debut Summer feature, so make sure to head over and pick up some new authors to add to your wishlist.

Beach Reads To Die For

There’s nothing better than a good book on the beach and I thought I’d share some of my favourite beach reads with you.

Firstly Lovestruck Summer by Melissa Walker is a definite. It was published by HarperTeen back in 2009 and is absolutely brilliant. It tells the story of Quinn and her summer in Austin focusing around a music festival there. It’s funny and most importantly well written, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I’d also suggest Sophie McKenzie’s Six Steps series comprising Six Steps to a Girl, Three’s a Crowd and The One and Only. They’re easy reads but they’re fun too and perfect for a sunny summer day. McKenzie’s other books, although less summery, are great too.

Last summer I read Beautiful Americans by Lucy Silag and it’s a perfect beach read. It’s about four American teens and their time in Paris with a bit of romance and controversy. If you like this one, the series continues with Wanderlust and Experienced.

Finally I’d recommend Koh Tabu by Ann Kelley. The thriller is about a camping trip that goes very wrong leading to 9 girls ending up on a tropical island. Ann Kelley is a fantastic author and this is a perfect one for the summer.

Of course there are many wonderful beach reads and if you’re looking for authors that fit this criteria I’d recommend Clare Chambers, Jodi Picoult, Sarra Manning, Robin Benway, Dorothy Koomson, Suzanne LaFleur, Kate Brian and Jenny Valentine’s books too (I’m sure I’ve missed many more!). Hope these keep you going though and enjoy your trips to the beach. 

Thanks again for having me!
