Have you read the Harry Potter series yet?  🙂

I just finished The Time Traveler’s Wife-it’s a great book. And of course, any of the Twilight or Harry Potter books. It took me forever to get into the first Harry Potter book. I picked it up and tried to read it and I barely made it 50 pages. I picked it up a year later and forced myself through it and I was hooked!

My list so far has “The Road.” I might dig up some of what I like to call my “vacation” reading like the Shopaholic series.

ANYTHING by Phillipa Gregory, the woman who wrote The Other Boleyn Girl. They’re all fabulous and addicting. So hard to put down and there’s so much scandal and plotting and drama, you can’t turn away

i love gabriel garcia marquez and “love in the time of cholera” is one of my fave books ever! i also enjoyed “eat, pray, love.” it’s an easy read and i love travel, so it was nice to sort of “go along” with the author as she traveled through italy, india and bali. have you read the shopahloic series or anything by sophia kinsella? those are always fun “beach reads” for me. there’s so much more out there (i heart reading too!), but you’d probably want to do other stuff on your honeymoon too….lol.

I love the Southern Vampire Series/Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris.  Also, Chelsea Handler’s books (Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea and My Horizontal Life) are raunchy but extremely hilarious.  Great beach reads.

If you want some “easy” reads, Jen Lancaster has a few memoirs out that are seriously Laugh Out Loud funny. So far I’ve read “Bitter is the New Black” (her first book) and “Bright Lights, Big Ass” (her 2nd book.) I’m on her 3rd right now, titled “Such a Pretty Fat” which is about her struggle with weight loss. Hilarious. During the first book I would make my FI so mad because I would just laugh hysterically while he was trying to sleep. She’s really sarcastic and kind of abrasive, so if you aren’t into um…bitchy-ness, she might not be the right author for you. But I love it 🙂 And yay for nearing the honeymoon!!

If you liked Twilight, I also recommend the Sookie Stackhouse series (the novels which True Blood is based on).  Really light reading, but I can’t put the books down.

I always love finding books that are somehow related to where I am travelling!  Where are you going on your honeymoon?

With that in mind, any good books taking place in Australia?

If you like young adult fiction, I highly reccomend The Mysterious Benedict Society. I just finished the first book and started the second today!

If you like sci-fi/fantasy, check out The Mortal Instruments series.

The Sookie Stackhouse books are really fun. I just finished reading the ones that are out. Good guilty pleasure!

 

Another book that I just finished was My Sister’s Keeper. It’s fantastic. I cried for about 45 minutes at the end of it. :p

 

AAAnd my alltime favorite book is The Time Traveler’s Wife. Love, love.
