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

  16. I either like light, fast-reading books such as those by Sophie Kinsella, or I go with tried and true because I know I will enjoy it such as Georgette Heyer.

  17. Got to read the books the kids will read to give my approval and allow me to ask questions later to ensure that they are understanding it as well as reading it cover to cover!
