5 Great TV-Themed Summer Books for Your Beach Reading


When we go to the beach, we need to have some good reads.  Here is a list of some TV Themed books for your beach and pool time.

  1. ‘It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After’ By Andi Dorfman – Andi Dorfman, the beloved finalist of season eighteen of The Bachelor who infamously rejected Juan Pablo and went on to star on season ten of The Bachelorette, dishes about what it’s like to live out a love story—and its collapse—in front of the cameras, offering hard-won advice for moving on after a break-up, public or not.
  2. ‘Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything’ By Jennifer Keishin Armstrong – The hilarious behind-the-scenes story of two guys who went out for coffee and dreamed up Seinfeld—the cultural sensation that changed television and bled into the real world, altering the lives of everyone it touched.
  3. The Eternal Party: Understanding My Dad, Larry Hagman, the TV Star America Loved to Hate By Kristina Hagman and Elizabeth Kaye – When you have a very famous father, like mine, everyone thinks they know him. My Dad, Larry Hagman, portrayed the storied, ruthless oilman JR on the TV series Dallas. He was the man everyone loved to hate, but he had a personal reputation of being a nice guy who fully subscribed to his motto: Have Fun, Don’t Worry, Be Happy. Dad had a famous parent too, Mary Martin, known from many roles on Broadway, most memorably as Peter Pan. Off-stage she was a kind, elegant woman, who maintained the down home charm of her Texas roots. Both were performers to the core of their beings, masters at crafting their public images. They were beloved. And their relationship was complex and often fraught.
  4. ‘The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo’ By Amy Schumer – The Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and star of Inside Amy Schumer and the acclaimed film Trainwreck has taken the entertainment world by storm with her winning blend of smart, satirical humor. Now, Amy Schumer has written a refreshingly candid and uproariously funny collection of (extremely) personal and observational essays.
  5. ‘TV (The Book): Two Experts Pick the Greatest American Shows of All Time’ By Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz – Is The Wire better than Breaking Bad? Is Cheers better than Seinfeld? What’s the best high school show ever made? Why did Moonlighting really fall apart? Was the Arrested Development Netflix season brilliant or terrible?
