All of the Twilight series will keep me occupied over, and over and over! I am about to read them all for the 5th time.

Also the time travellers wife by Audrey Niffeneger is a great book and a different type of love story! I would recommend it!

If you would like a comedy (slapstick humor) I recommend a book called Lamb by Christopher Moore I would google it to find more about it.

I totally agree with poli2B… do NOT read Twilight on your honeymoon!! I just started the series and have been totally consumed by it 🙂    Books 3 and 4 are currently in a different state, so I am waiting 2 weeks to finish and it is killing me!

 

I have enjoyed Jodi Picoult’s books. Steve Berry is good as well if you like the historical fiction stuff like the Da Vinci Code. I also LOVE Cecelia Aherns books (she wrote PS I Love you).

But here’s some suggestions now… 

Agree… Time Travelor’s Wife is very good

Also, for something a little hot & heavy (sexy & disturbing, but excellent) Taming the Beast by Emily Maguire

ok, and I now agree with Poli2b…maybe NOT Twilight – ha ha might just take your attention away from the Hubby. (considering when I first read the Twilight series I read book 2 & 3 back to back in 2 days! – a book a day you got that right!)

Any thing by Jasper Faust, he writes the Thursday Next mystery novels.

I recently read The Twentieth Wife, a wonderful love story.

Ok..I read these books when on vacation and when I need a mental vacation..Anything by Jimmy Buffett!

My favorite is "Where is Joe Merchant" a fun read that takes you spanning the carribbean.

Since you’re off to Italy, why not read "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown?  (yay..the movie comes out this friday!!!) It’s a wonderful wild ride filled with historical fiction and of course..a taste of Rome.  Plus I adore the character of Robert Langdon..

Ok… so the other gals might be right… Twilight is incredibly addictive and distracting…  I would take it easy with a good lighthearted girly novel… something that’s a little easier to put down than Twilight (though I totally reccomend reading it at some point if you haven’t… maybe just not for your honeymoon).

I really did like Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin, as futuremrslurman suggested above.

I just started The Queen Of Babble by Meg Cabot, yesterday and I love it.  I am about half way through. It is a book series so I am looking forward to read those books as well.

The main character is a 22 year old woman who is just finishing fashion school and takes a trip to Europe to visit her new boy friend…. its really cute and funny.  It keeps your attention, but its also easy to put down and pick up as well…  great read – so far!

I would say any of the Shopaholic series or the books from Emily Griffin or Jennifer Weiner. All are great reads and each were hard to put down even to sleep =)…

I just got a ton of hand-me-down Nicholas Sparks books.  Great for a honeymoon book.  They are all about love, usually.

The Time Traveler’s Wife, for sure. It’s a beautifully written story, but you gotta have patience!

Also, if you like comedy and mysteries Janet Evanovich writes a hilarious series about a femal bounty hunter. They are quick and funny reads.

Also, Elizabeth Burg has written SEVERAL wonderful and beautiful books, but some of them are tear-jerkers!

Beach Music by Pat Conroy…the best book ever!  Perfect if you are in Italy too 🙂
