Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and Bookish. Each week the bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish put out a topic, and discuss their top ten options for said topic. This week it’s all about the Top Ten books in your summer beach bag/summer reading list.
The Strain by Guillermo del Toro. A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Ephraim “Eph” Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold.

Wheel of Darkness By Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. A Novel. A luxury ocean liner on its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic, awash in wealth and decadence . . . An ancient Tibetan box, its contents unknown, sealed with a terrifying warning . . . An FBI agent destined to confront what he fears most—himself . . .

The Princess Bride By William Goldman. What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be…well…a lot less than the man of her dreams?As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad’s recitation, and only the “good parts” reached his ears.
Because I’ve been neglecting my Classics Club list. And I haven’t read it, so why not?
