Top Ten Books with a Beach Setting

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by  The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers get a topic which entails giving a list of ten things based on the topic.

Today’s instructions were as follows: August 16: Top Ten Books With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc)

I decided to do a post on books that have beach settings. I loves beaches and can spend hours just looking at the ocean. I have always found this kind scenery to be quite relaxing. This is why I like books that have beach settings. Reading them, I can picture the wonderful scenery and the untold secrets held by the waters.

So here are some of my favorite books with beach settings.

Psychological Thrillers

  1. After She Fell by Mary Jane Riley
  2. The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland
  3. Chosen Child by Linda Huber
  4. The Fire Child by Tremayne S.K


  1. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
  2. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
  3. That Summer by Sarah Desen

Books that I would like to read

  1. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
  2. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
  3. Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks


Honorable Mention

  1. I haven’t read Pride and Prejudice, I really need to do so soon. SOS is a lovely story, more YA than psychological thriller but really interesting. I hope that you will read it soon 🙂

    1. Oh wow, enjoy your trip to the beach. Its really cold here so I think my next trip will be sometime towards the end of the year.I also love walking at the beach though I hardly get any reading done there:-)

  2. I can honestly say I’ve never read any of these, but I’ve heard of most of them and have a few of the thriller ones on my TBR.
    Have you read any of these while actually on a beach?

  3. I would really struggle to come up with a book set on a beach – I’m going to have to go and think about that one now! In the meantime I do like the look of the Tremayne book and pretty sure I’ve read and liked that author previously.
