Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week’s list is the Top Ten books I plan to have in my beach bag this summer.
I’m not much of a beach person since I don’t like the heat, but these are the books I’m looking forward to reading on vacation this year.
I’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to reading this summer too! Let me know in the comments, and if you have a blog, why not write your own Top Ten list? Just be sure to link back to The Broke and the Bookish, and feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments here, too.
