B is for BEACH (and the second stop of the #ChickLitMay Scavenger Hunt)
Which should come as no surprise… Since, well… I am Feeling Beachie after all. And even though I am about to move away from the beach, I will always be a beach girl at heart.
When I think of Chick Lit I can’t help but think about beaches. As a reader, I have very eclectic taste in books. But if I’m on vacation, or if it’s the summer, and I am able to lounge on the beach the only genre I will only be reading will be chick lit. I don’t know what it is. There is something about light hearted, humorous romantic books that I think that goes perfectly with sun on your face, warm sand between your toes, and the scent of the ocean filling your nose. Probably because more often then not one of the main characters has a romantic moment on a beach…
And really, is there anything more romantic then a first kiss, at night, besides the ocean? I don’t think so…
In Dangled Carat, my real life chick lit novel about my attempt to convert a commitment phobic man into a doting husband, I share how our first kiss was on the beach, at night, while sitting in a lifeguard stand. It is funny, I remember the night like it was yesterday. At the time, I didn’t have a clue how much drama there would be in our relationship, but I did think our first kiss would be amazing in a book….
