RTW -- Favorite Beach Read
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered.

This week’s topic:
Summer is winding down, but it's not over just yet! What's your favorite beach read?
This is always a tricky question for me because, even though I live within walking distance of a fairly nice beach, I rarely ever go there in the summer. And when I do go to a beach, I'm not usually there to read. If I'm on vacation somewhere where I can just lay out on the beach for hours on end (read: Florida), then I usually just read whatever's in my stack.
However, if I had to pick a book to read on the beach, I'd either go with something summer- and beach-oriented (Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, for instance) or something light and romantic (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith) or something comfortable and familiar (Tamora Pierce's Immortals quartet or J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series).
