The day is warm, the sun is bright and blazing; lemonade (or iced tea) is at hand, but one thing is missing; the "perfect" Summertime read.
I don't know about you guys/girls, but I always use the term "beach read" and never really stopped to think about what it means. How would I define something as being a perfect "beach, summer" read? Ummm... this is, usually, where my brain dies. Maybe I haven't had enough lemonade, or maybe the lemons were too sour and my brain cells drowned. Yep, I'm known for the dramatics...
To me, the perfect summery/beachy read is: Any book that is as engaging as it is quickly read. I want to be entertained, but I don't want to have to think about it too much. Literature books, begone! Perfect beach reads are smart, witty, electric, sassy, spicy, etc., without being too heavy.
So, I ask this question of you:
- In YOUR opinion, what is the definition of the "Perfect" Summer/Beach read?
- Do Summer/Beach reads need to take place during the Summer, or on the beach?
In the end, I think any book that I enjoy (no matter what season) is a perfect read, but a "Perfect" Summer/Beach read is definitely a book that is enjoyable & easy to read.... and maybe it takes place during the Summer... on a beach.... with a big floppy hat!
- What book are you planning on reading this Summer?
