The Outlander books make great beach reads.
I think Lady Midnight would make a great summer read to enjoy at the beach because it takes place right near a beach lolol
Actually, I don't get to go much to the beach. But as a summer read... something by Colleen Hoover, for sure. Maybe Someday or It Ends With Us (:
Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar because it's such a great contemporary romance (which are my favs) and set in Aussie (which is where I'm from) and has great, realisitc characters. Overall such an amazing book!
The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion. Charming, funny and endearing.
Anything Morgan Matson her books are great summer reads!
Naked at Lunch by Mark Haskell Smith. For many of us, being at a beach in the summer can feel weirdly like hanging out with a bunch of strangers in our underwear. Haskell Smith’s rollicking Naked at Lunch does its absolute best to make us feel more comfortable in our skin. In his funny, thorough account of his investigative stint as a social nudist, he deftly balances reporting, dry humor, historical context and hilarious anecdotes.
The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning are great beach reads .
Anything light and romantic like Wrong Number, Right Guy by Elle Casey or Dirty by Kylie Scott.
I avoid beaches like the plague, can't stand sand :D My favourite holiday read would be any of Thea Harrison's Elder Races novels. Rafflecopter entries are in my real name NIKKI HAYES, thanks for the lovely giveaway :o)
I like light, romantic comedy for my beach reads. If it has a beach theme that is just extra.
Anything Dean Koontz or Stephen King

My perfect beach read is anything contemporary. I love a good contemporary in the summer.Megan @ reading away the days
I actually have only been to the beach once and I wasn't able to take a book with me :(Rebekah
I'm not sure, but I like anything with a little bit of drama and romance.
usually a romance suspense i can't explain why but i prefer those for this occasion and no special author simply teh genre
I love a good romantic novel to read on the beach. Thanks for the chance x
I think The Summer Trilogy by Jenny Han because I love to read fluffy contemporary romances in the summer- on the beach mainly- and this one definitely fits the category. Plus I love Jenny's writing style.
We live 10km away from 90 Mile Beach in the Far North of New Zealand :) I love it !
I don't have a favorite, but I like to read a light romantic or a funny read!
Maybe a Victorian mystery or an old favorite such as an Agatha Christie book.

I love all of Mary Alice Monroe's beach books.
Any book by Elin Hilderbrand.
Along for the ride by Sarah Dessen! It's a light hearted read :]
I love "The Summer I turned pretty " by Jenny Han. The whole series is great!
It's been a long time since I've gone to the beach and read a book. I generally like something light, so I'd probably bring a cozy mystery or a romance novel.
Wendy Wax's Ten Beach Road. It reminds me of being at the beach!!
Any books by Kasie West. They're all so cute and adorable!
Anything by oh Green Kasie West or Colleen Hoover!
A great romance is the perfect beach read for me :)
Anything!! I love all books. Anything J D Robb would be my pick, because I have fallen in love with the characters in her In Death series.
I love taking chick-lits to the beach, because those are lighter reads.
I'm not really big on typical beach reads, cause they tend to be chick lit, so whatever I'm reading at the time I go to the beach is a good beach read for me!
I really like to read big books at the beach! my favourite was the one I read last year, Anna Karenina!
If I'm going to the beach I would take a contemporary book just cus its much easier to read, try Abbi Glines, she has a ton of books 😊
I'd read something light like Mary Janice Davidson's Undead series. Thanks for the giveaway!
I like any book that captives me enough to not care for anything else!
My favourite beach read is something interesting that I haven't read before.
My favorite beach read would be Summer On the Short Bus. It is about a summer camp. Thanks for the hop contest. :)
I don't have a favorite beach read. I guess it would be anything paperback. :)
I don't really go to beach or the pool, can't handle the heat to well. I also don't change my read habits at really depending on the time of year. I can say that right now I'm reading Miss Darcy's Companion by Joana Starnes.
If I went to the beach, I'd just read whatever I was currently reading, because I'm always addicted to it!
Any clean romances because they are fun but not uncomfortable.
I don't have a specific favorite, but I like to read mystery books at the beach.
Something that is quick and easy to read like short stories or "how to" books.Thanks for giving.Besos, SarahJourneys of The Zoo
I like to read summer themed books!!
I really loved The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer! Its a fun romance....were they rent the same cottage! I love reading romances with a beach theme!
I love reading something light and trully romantic on the beach.
For some reason I always love the classic Little Women. There's nothing about holidays or beaches about it, but it always reminds me of summer for some reason :)
Def Blood Red Road series! It takes place in a desert. :)Samantha D
Anything by Nicholas Sparks
Anything by Meg Cabot - they're totally fluffy and brainless! I also like a good suspense on the beach, like Girl on the Train.
I am not a beach girl, but I would read a fun romance. Maybe Abbi Glines or Sarah Dessen.
I love Jackie Collins books because they offer glamourous escapism.
Usually I ed reading some epic fantasy :)- Ana M
I loved reading Gone with the wind by the beach!
I loved reading Gone with the wind by the beach because it is a romantic story with a historic backdrop.
I don't know what a "beach read" is. My favorite author is Stephen King, so any of his books I'd love to read :)
Reading everything I can get by Wally Lamb at the moment x
I love to sit reading a classic - war and peace is my present book for holiday :)
Jemima J by Jane Green
The Stand is a great beach read because it is so engrossing!
I don't have a single favorite beach read. I do love to read on the beach if I can! I'm happy with any light read so I can keep track of the kids and not get in too deep to people watch.
I love a good fantasy for a beach read. Being outside always makes it feel a little more real.
Perhaps not technically a beach read, but Sarah Pinborough's "Breeding Ground" is one I come back around to every summer. It causes weird looks (who reads horror at the beach/park?), but then where I'm from it could simply be the fact that I read in public at all. :)
I love reading novellas at the beach since they are quick reads!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen because it's not just your typical cutesy summer read. It's deep, and it's about family!
Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh is a brilliant book, at the beach or not.jen dot barnard at btinternet dot com
I like to read chick lit books set in a seasidetown.
Are you Experienced by William Sutcliffe as it's very funny & very lightweight.
Any book by Sarah Dessen!
I recently started reading books by Barbara Delinsky, but my favorite by her is Blueprints. It's a great story, and one I can kind of relate to!
I would say any book in the After series by Anna Todd. Or a Colleen Hoover book.
Anything by Jill Shalvis because her books are light, fun reads

I love some sort of chick lit like Cecelia Ahern on the beach.
No favourite as such, just something that isn't too demanding
I don't have a favorite but I like to read funny, contemporary romances
Anything paranormal or fantasy - helps my mind relax!
love cecilia ahern books
Nora Roberts or Jill Shalvis because I like to relax with a good romance and a happy ending when I'm on holiday.
I think that my favorite "beach read" would be a small stack of my favorite magazines. I say this because I imagine laying out in the backyard or at our picnic table, letting my mind wander as I flip through the magazines that I've been meaning to catch up on. It's an activity that I'd find entertaining, enjoyable, and definitely not a waste of time-- but I wouldn't need to pay very close attention or take it too seriously.
A chick lit. Love them and find them perfect beach/summer reading. Although I do like Christmas-based novels in summer for some reason too. Only problem is, remember how long you've been reading and slap on the sun cream or you might be doing a "lobster" impression.
Horror novels, because thex make me chilly
Anything by Kelly Oram. Her books are so much fun and I love them! I think The Avery Shaw Experiment is my favorite for the beach, it's a really light and fun reading. But I LOVE her Supernaturals series!
I don't have a favorite beach read anything set at the beach would be perfect.
Try as I might I can't think of a favourite beach read! It would be something not too heavy and that is easy to dip in and out of
I love reading Julie James's book while on the beach cos they're light and easy to read
My favorite beach reads are any books by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan, and Lora Leigh. These are the stories that I can read over and over again, and still love them.
I would say anything that is a fun escape. Anything that is a fantasy or adventure would be good for me.
