Water, Water Everywhere Book Titles

Happy Tuesday! Today’s suggested theme for Top Ten Tuesday is ‘water’. I debated which body of water to feature but ultimately I decided to go with a ‘water, water everywhere’ approach to the book titles I included. I’m featuring book titles that mention 10 different bodies of water, from the more common to the more rare. What’s your favorite body of water to visit? Do you prefer the ocean or the lake? A creek or a river? Bay or bayou? What about a pond, a cove, the sea, or springs? Well, today you’ll find book titles to help you visit your fave body of water through the magic of fiction!

  1. You can certainly pick neat topics! I love water! And these covers all have that same look–sort of watery. 🙂 I’m thinking of the Gulf of Mexico right now and the hurricane bearing down on it. I have a book, Splashdown, that starts off with a hurricane on Florida’s Gulf Coast, and another I am writing about a flood. So many disasters these days. Water is beautiful, but can also be deadly.

  2. I love the way you did this. I went with books with water on their covers that were on my physical bookshelves that I need to read…and some of them are ones you listed here 😉 Have a great Tuesday!

  3. Love me a good beach book for both reading AND writing! 😉 Favorite beach? Pawleys Island, South Carolina. My favorite recent book? Memory Lane by Becky Wade. Oh. My. Goodness!

  4. I love that you broke the list down into different bodies of water! I am not familiar with any of these books but I must admit, I am quite intrigued by a number of them. I’ll have to add these to my TBR to check them out.

  5. I’ve had Under the Bayou Moon, on my reading list for a few weeks. I’m glad to see some books I recognize on here, even if I have not read them yet. I like Coleen Cobles books that are set near water.
    I enjoyed checking out some of the mysteries! Great idea for a book compilation!
