Top Ten Tuesday on the Beach

top ten tuesday button
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every week the girls from the Broke and
Bookish come up with a subject and I will try to find 10 results combined with that weeks topic.

This weeks topic is about books and the beach. I usually go to the beach when it is like stormy and cold. I hate getting stuck in traffic jams trying to get to a beach which is so busy that your toes are picking the nose of the person behind you while a kid drops his ice cream on your back.
But I love books that have a beach as a character in them. Especially books set in England with the nice cliffs that are always a danger or secluded islands where people always end up fighting on the beach.

Great list! I loved many of the books on your list (Rebecca, Guernsey Literary..., The First Rule of Swimming) and I hope to read The Violets of March (loved Jio`s latest book, The Last Camellia) and The Light Between Oceans at some point :)

I love your description of beaches! Haha. This is why I kind of scoff when people get all, "But you're so lucky to live that close to the sea!" Give me a nice quiet park any day. :)
