Top Ten Tuesday: Do you know where your children are?

 



TOP FAVORITE BEACH BOOKS


When I was four -- to keep me quiet during a dinner party -- my uncle said I could eat in front of the TV.  I followed him into the living room where he set up a small table and clicked on the first channel he could find. Lucky me, I got to watch Jaws

Since that terrorising evening, I associate the beach with sharks. And till this day, I always bring something scary to read at the beach so it can keep me grounded and far from the ocean.

  2. Aw what a sad story :( I've never actually seen Jaws, and I think I might be past the point where it could actually scare me and be worth the watch.

    Anyway, these are some great picks! Fracture was soooo good, and the icy, wintery atmosphere will definitely transport the reader to an entirely different place.

    1. It's a great film. Spielberg almost ruined his career doing it kept going past the schedule).

      Fracture is sooo good. Can't wait for the sequel :D

  3. I remember adult letting me watch movies that were definitely not age appropriate (Candyman).

    I think bringing something scary to the beach is a great idea. I often bring something action-packed.

  4. I almost included Shark Girl on my list as well, but then thought it to be too scary for beach :)
