Life’s a Beach Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the third annual Life’s a Beach Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

it is now time for that great summer question – what on earth is a beach read? And how many of them can I cram into my summer?

Everyone has a different idea of what constitutes a good beach read. Based on the annual lists of “best beach reads” and the places one finds such lists, one might believe that there’s a lot of light fluffy reading involved. While you’re baking in the sun, a heavy book just doesn’t seem like the thing.

Although something that puts a chill up your spine on a steamy hot day might be just the ticket. Whatever floats your boat – especially if you are actually floating in a boat!

So here’s your chance to win either a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository – so that you can get started on your own beach reads, no matter where you actually plan to read them.

  1. Oh goodness, I wouldn’t even know.. I’m usually too busy keeping an eye on the littles to read at the beach.lol

  2. I wouldn’t read at the beach, if I ever went there (went only once when I was little), but a relaxing read for me is Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

  3. Any fiction, really. Reading Part I of War and Peace on the beach may not have been the best idea, though. I got sunburned, which is unusual for my skintone.

  4. I don’t really have a favorite “beach” read, but my favorite book at the moment is Traitor Born by Amy A Bartol.

  5. I love the water, but am too photosensitive to hang out on the beach (or anywhere outdoors). But, just for lolling around on a summer day? A good mystery would be perfect.

  6. Reading is reading to me…I don’t have particular genres that I read while at the pool/beach and I’m not a genre snob so pretty much anything goes.

    Except horror. No horror. Plus, that doesn’t sound very beachy and relaxing.

  7. When I’m at the beach I always have littles with me . My beach read usually has a lot of brightly colored pictures and not very many big words. LOL!

  8. I usually turn to the latest from Janet Evanovich or Sue Grafton or Kathy Reichs or Tess Gerritsen as my go-to beach read.

  9. I always like to read something about pirates or something like a Nicolas Sparks book when I’m at the beach! Fun and festive!

  10. My favorite beach read is any book by Mina V. Esguerra. She has a new book coming out (What Kind of Day), so that’s the next book I’m reading. 🙂

  11. I like to read mysteries at the beach. I don’t have a specific one that’s my current favorite right now though.

  12. I usually like fantasy books. The best are really far in the future or really far in the past and focus on life story.

  13. When someone says beach read, I always think of Wendy Wax’s Ten Beach Road. I really enjoyed that book.

  14. My favorite genre is romance (every sun-genre of romance and every heat level from none to spicy.) I like to save the sweet and clean ones for reading in public though. I don’t want to either cry or blush while reading in public lol 🙂

  15. Im not really sure. I like any book that can captivate my attention. And I love the beach even though it has been many many years since i have been there
