ListedThese aren’t your typical beach reads. I’m talking literal beach here. You know kids thrown on to an island and forced to survive.

I know there have to be more books but I couldn’t think of any!
Do you have any books to add to the list?

  1. Haha, I love your take on “beach” reads! Have you ever listened to any of the audio for Beauty Queens? It’s narrated by Libba Bray and she is HILARIOUS! I highly recommend giving it a listen, even if it’s just a little one.

  2. Ha! I laughed out loud when I saw what “beach” reads meant to you here. Are we only doing books we like? I read Gordon Dahlquist’s The Different Girl lately, which is about people surviving on an island, but I didn’t think much of it. I’ll also add KJ Parker’s book The Company, which is about a group of veterans who get all their stuff together to go live on an island. Some stuff goes wrong.

    • Glad you appreciated that. 😀 It initially started as books I liked but that didn’t amount to many. Now I’m just compiling stranded on a beach books. I haven’t heard of those but I’ll have to look into them. The Different Girl’s cover is interesting looking.
