Top Ten Beach Bag Reads
This topic might elicit a snicker amongst those who know me well as I loathe the beach. Actually, I love looking at photos or paintings of the outdoors but don’t like being amongst large pockets of nature. I have very fair skin so I get sunburned in under an hour and I have the innate ability to attract swarms of flies, mosquitoes, leeches, bugs, ants, stray dogs etc. It is almost like Mother Nature enjoys giving me a very large finger and cackling at my misfortune. Not that I’m bitter or anything…
By their very definition, beach bag reads have to be books that you can easily pick up and enjoy without having to deal with anything too serious or think too hard. Romance novels fit into the beach bag genre nicely so I’ll be focussing on them. Click on the pics if you want to go to Goodreads.
