Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so go see what other authors decided to write about for this week’s prompt!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt was very open – 10 books set in X setting! The choice of setting was up to us, and since I’m having some wanderlust at the moment, I decided to focus on books that are set on the ocean! This means boats, islands, the beach, etc.

“A sailor chooses the wind that takes the ship from a safe port. Ah, yes, but once you’re abroad, as you have seen, winds have a mind of their own. Be careful, Charlotte, careful of the wind you choose.”                                                     -Zachariah, True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi

Bloody Jack (series) by L.A. Meyer

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Nobody’s Princess by Esther M. Friesner

The Odyssey by Homer

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Sea of Trolls by  Nancy Farmer

Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis

The Waves by Virginia Woolf

The Prince of Mist by Carl Ruis Zafon

Clearly, I need to read more books set on the ocean, since I was reaching with a few of these. Also the list is pretty white. What are your favorite books based at the beach or on the ocean?
