What is the last book you read set near water?

I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Gladly Throw Into the Ocean. I had decided to skip this week’s topic, but then when I was reading other blogs today, I was inspired by What Cathy Read Next to SPIN it!

My reason for spinning the topic is 1) I don’t enjoy revisiting/promoting books that I haven’t enjoyed 2) I wouldn’t throw a book in the ocean or any water no matter how much I disliked it 3) What I dislike you might love and 4) I fear hurting an author’s feelings by calling her/him out on a dislike list.

So, ALL of these books set near water I enthusiastically recommend!

    • It’s a book that I liked upon first read and now I’m not as in love with it as I was at first…I really didn’t like the ending. I’m hopping over to read your post!

  1. For some light reading, I recommend Shipped by Angie Hockman. It’s a contemporary romance novel set on a cruise in the Galapagos Islands. Plenty of water sports involved.
