Beach Reading: Tigers In Red Weather

Wouldn't it be nice to be walking here...


 Toting this... 

To settle down for a long summer's read?

 via Pretty Unpretentious

 TOAST via Beach Bungalow 8

This looks like the perfect book:

Liza Klaussmann's Tigers in Red Weather follows two cousins, Nick and Helena, in their adventures on post World War II Martha's Vineyard over the course of several summers. Some sultry heat, some family drama and a murder mystery -- sounds like a perfect way to while away a sunny afternoon. Klaussmann is the great-great-great granddaughter of Herman Melville, and shares with how his legacy and Martha's Vineyard shaped her story.

What book are you bringing to the beach?


  1. Love that perfect beach day you painted, with a little nostalgia throw in..the book sounds wonderful, adding it to whats now my "fall reading list" since my summer list is overflowing!

  2. Fabulous colours...and thank you for the book on my list... xv

  3. This morning as I was walking the pupper I saw a family packing the car to go to the beach for the day--how fantastic that sounds! Especially if I could have a stripey tent. :) The book sounds like just what the doc ordered...Merci!

  4. This sounds like a must have read. I little of everything.
    Thank you for the recommend and the gorgeous images, Jeanne!
    Happy Wednesday.

  5. I'm tired of the sultry heat and would be running for that ocean of water. The book sounds like a wonderful read on hot summer days.


  6. We're heading to the beach this weekend and I'm bringing along "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" though your post has me wondering if I need two beach reads...

  7. i'm a nonfiction girl who loves design books, cookbooks, psychology, humor, and spiritual reads. recently finished flourish by martin seligman which has me pretty excited. my favorite essayists are david sedaris and anne lamott. but when i go on vacation: FICTION! so i'll keep this in mind.

    i am gearing up for some fun with guests later today!



  8. Oh, that looks like a winner!!!! I'm reading an oldie but goodies, A French Woman for All Seasons. Also, the Gilded Age.

    In fact, I have got to carve out more time for books AND the beach!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day, Jeanne!
    xoxo Elizabeth

  9. This is a great book recommedation...haven't read the book. With the tie to Melville, I should also reread Moby Dick. The tote is very pretty for carrying the books.

  10. I'm adding it to my hold list at the library (have I told you how much I missed having an english library at my disposal? :)). I am reading In Search of Warmer Suns about the migration of African Americans out of the's a very good read!
