Top Ten Tuesday #18- Contemporary Summer Reads

Song Of The Moment - Jump Right In by Zac Brown Band
Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

 Topic - Top Ten Books That Should Be In Your Beach Bag or Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag This Summer - First of all I'm limiting it to YA Contemporaries that should be in your beach bag and then I'm doing half and half, the books that WILL be in my beach bag are ones that have already come out and I just haven't had time to read while the the ones that SHOULD be in a beach bag are ones I have read and loved. =)

Books That Should Be In Your Beach Bag -
  - We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
  - Panic by Lauren Oliver
  - Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
  - One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva 
  - The Summer I Wasn't Me by Jessica Verdi

Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag
  - Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson - I love Jodi Lynn Anderson's Tiger Lily and I can't wait to just sit down and marathon read this whole trilogy.
  -  If I Stay by Gayle Forman - I included this because I am determined to finally read it this summer because how have I not?
  - Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson - I have been saving this because I just know that I am going to love it and it seems like the perfect summer read.
  - The Secrets Of Lily Graves by Sarah Strohmeyer - ^dido
  - Open Road Summer by Emery Lord - ^Dido again.

  7. This is an awesome list! If I Stay is amazing, and I am convinced that I need We Were Liars in my life! As for what I read in the summer, basically the same stuff as I do in the winter. I really don't change locations, so it doesn't much matter :) Hope you enjoy the books you plan on reading!
