Today’s T3 theme is Beach Read (something you’d read on the beach and/or set at the beach). I’m not really one to associate particular types of books with the beach – my last 3 beach reads were Ender’s Game, The Hunger Games, and Gone With the Wind. So I’m going for something set at the beach: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham.
If you’re a fan of the TV show, you already know about Veronica’s hometown of Neptune, CA:
The hazard of living in a place where you had so much history–so much pain and so much rage and so much love–was that every item could turn on you in a flash.
This novel picks up where the Veronica Mars film left off, with Veronica back home in Neptune and helping out her dad. Plus, it’s Spring Break so the town is overrun with college kids in board shorts and bikinis.
