LAZY SUMMER READS {Top Ten of the Moment}

I'm always in search of a great beach book.  Something light, fun, and romantic.  Any suggestions?  What are you favorite summertime reads? 

Here's my top beach recommendations for summer 2011...
10. TWILIGHT by Stephenie Meyer  --I find summer to be the perfect time to re-read old favorites. 
9.  AS YOU WISH  by Jackson Pearce  --This book is about as Disney as they come...perfect for summer.  A girl falls for her genie as she forced to make 3 wishes. 
8.  PEEPS by Scott Westerfeld  --Maybe I'm just including this one because I read it last summer.  But either way it was dark and mysterious, so if you grow tired of the light and fluff, this one is super interesting. 
7.  FORGIVE MY FINS by Tera Lynn Childs  --Light.  Fluffy.  Mermaids.
6.  UNEARTHLY by Cynthia Hand  --Really a perfect love story.  About angels, but read it for the un-expected summer romance in this one. 
5.  WINGS by Aprilynne Pike  --One of my all-time favorites.  I've read it twice now, but I could read this one over and over. 
4.  SEA CHANGE by Aimee Friedman  --Romantic.  Setting at the beach.  Ideal summer book.
3.  A KISS IN TIME by Alex Flinn  --Spin on the classic SLEEPING BEAUTY.  Romantic and light.
2.  HARRY POTTER (Book 7) by J.K. Rowling  --With the final movie coming out in days, a refresher might be nice. 
1.  LEAVING PARADISE and RETURN TO PARADISE by Simone Elkeles  --By the author of PERFECT CHEMISTRY.  Insanly romantic and tense.

I love a good beach read too. I totally inhaled FORGIVE MY FINS. That was a really cute read.

Oh, I hadn't heard of As You Wish, but it sounds fun. One of these days I'll get to Forgive My Fins.
