I need exactly the same thing!

I’m planning on taking the latest book in a series I have been reading by Ben Aaronovitch about a Met Copper who works for the magic department, they are daft, but funny.

I thought about taking something historical, maybe a Philippa Gregory because a bit of a romp through the past would waste some time.

Maybe some Jane Austen just because I like to re-read over and over again 😉

I’d also like new suggestions. But overall I am keeping it light and fluffy…..though maybe adding in something steamy!

I’m likley to read on the beach while my new husband sleeps! So I’ll get through a lot of books while away as well as on the plane.

What types of books do you normally like?

 

Here are a few suggestions:

anything by Barbara Delinsky

Last Night at the Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger

The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

A Vintage Affair by Isabelle Wolf

The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts (first book Vision in White)  I did not care for this type of book, a friend recommended it, but it is probably good chick lit.

Left Negleted or Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Pefect Peace by Daniel Black

I don’t know if you like historical fiction but I am a really big fan of Ken Folliet (Pillars of the Earth,A place called freedom), I also like Harlan Coben (The woods, Gone for Good,Tell no one), I just read a very good book called Inez of my soul about a women from spain who is going with the conquestadors to discover Chile.

@californiabride2013:  I brought all bodice-rippers! I’d read them while DH slept in, then POUNCED the second he woke up!

@californiabride2013:  I’m a book blogger!

recent ones I’ve read that I was totally enthralled with were Gone Girl (and Sharp Objects by the same author, Gillian Flynn, though Sharp Objects may be a bit dark for some folks), and The Glass Castle. I’m in the middle of One Thousand White Women and so far it’s pretty great – I read 100 pages today! 0.0

I read Sharp Objects..it was really good. It is kind of dark but it was a very interesting book.

I always read chick lit on vacation, Sophie Kinsella’s newest book “Wedding Night” was hilarious!

@Nic01:  What about Christine Feehan? Her books look like fantasy novels but are actually 90% smut!

I loved Gone Girl. It was an amazing thriller. But it was sort of a marriage gone horribly wrong. Not sure if it’s good honeymoon material. Unless to think well, at least my marriage will never be like that!

Gone Girl is SOOOO good! And her other two books (Gillian Flynn)

I just read “The Husband’s Secret” by Liane Moriarty and it was really good- minus the lame title, lol. 

I also liked The Adults, by Alison Espach – Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand – and anything by Jodi Picoult!

If you like hysterical memoirs- read “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened” by Jenny Lawson. I’ve read it 2 or 3 times and it never gets old. 

I also read Jaycee Dugard’s memoir and Amanda Knox’s but those may not be quite so fun to read for your honeymoon…

Can you tell that I like to read??

DON’T read Gone Girl on your honeymoon! I read it on my babymoon and it really rattled me for at least the first half. It’s terrible to read about the way that marriage fell apart.

I second bodice rippers – Barbara Samuel is a good one– Heart of a Knight, A Winter Ballad and A Bed of Spices are all easy sexy reads.

Kindle is your friend–you can read any kind of trash book and no one will judge! I just finished Crazy Rich Asians–it was such a fun read. Cuckoo’s Calling by JK Rowling was an interesting mystery.
