Thematic Sunday: Books With a Beach Setting

Trying to get back into the swing of things. Here's a new list! FYI, if any of you guys have requests for themed lists, let me know via comments. I may do them next time if I can.

1) Anything Nicholas Sparks

Seriously, any Nicholas Sparks is basically going to have a beach at some point in time. It's like his favorite setting.

2) Anything Sarah Dessen

Dessen also apparently is a big fan of the beach setting.

3) Summer Boys (and Summer Girls) series by Hailey Abbott

Realistic Fiction series about a group of cousins and their romantic escapades during a summer spent at the beach.

4) Summer Sisters by Judy Blume

One of Blume's few adult books about a woman remembering a important summer spent on the beach with an old friend.

5) Clarity Books by Kim Harrington

I'll be honest, this is a bit of a stretch. The beach doesn't feature heavily here as in the others. But Clarity does live in a beachy tourist town. If you're more into the paranormal sort of beach books, this is a good one.

6) Summer Series Book 1: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Another realistic fiction one about a girl and her summers. I've never read it, but apparently there's a beach.

7) Hoot by Carl Hiaasen

Middle-grade book about a boy moving to a beach sort of town who makes friends with two kids trying to save the home of some owls.

8) The Mermaid's Mirror by L. K. Madigan

YA about a girl who discovers she's a mermaid while learning how to surf.

9) Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

Historical Fiction book about a group of people in a small coastal town in Italy.

10) Waiting For You by Susane Colasanti

Another YA romance taking place near a beach.
