Redbook has a feature on summer beach reads for 2010. Do any of these books look appealing to you? Or do you have your own summer reading list?
I am not much of a chick-lit reader, and to some degree I do associate summer beach reads with chick-lit. That said, there’s something about the summer months, with their longer days, lazy vacations, barbecues and warm weather that I associate with a lighter read (besides, sometimes you just need a light read, you know what I mean?). Not all of the books on the list look “light”, necessarily – Alice Hoffman, the only author on the list that I’ve read before, is not someone I associate with fluffy books. But all the books appear to be by female authors and seem to deal with subjects of interest to women.
Do you like to read at the beach? What’s your ideal beach read? Do any of the books on Redbook’s list look like your cup of tea? Is there any other book you’re particularly looking forward to this summer?
