I know summer is long gone and we’re pretty far into fall, but I recently made one last trek to the beach and have a beach read recommendation! My Most Excellent Year: a Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park is a light hearted, easy, fun, and almost sickly sweet. The beauty of a beach read is that it doesn’t need to be an award winning novel with a great plot and fantastic literary prose – beach reads are meant to be fun, and happy vacations from life. The guy should get the girl – the school play should be saved – the parent’s should accept their daughter’s choice to become a Broadway actress. That’s what this book is: happy, fun, coming-of-age, romance. So, if you’re looking for a beach read (or fun vacation book) consider this one!
