Gearing Up for Spring Break

pexels-photo-219014.jpegSpring Break, for many of us, is almost here. In fact, if you are a college student, you may have already had your break! Once I’ve decided where I am going to travel, the first thing I think about is what I’m going to read while I am on the plane, by the pool, or on the beach. A vacation book should be enjoyable (no textbooks or business journals), fast-paced, and hard to put down. Here’s a few recommendations for your next trip:

If you haven’t read Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Liesread-book-reading-literature-54578.jpeg yet, you are in for a treat. Secrets, competitive parents, and different points of view make this novel a perfect beach read. Two of her earlier books, The Hypnotist’s Love Story, and What Alice Forgot, are also perfect for tucking into your beach bag.

One book that has gotten a great deal of buzz lately is A.J. Finn’s The Woman in the Window. Anna Fox is a lonely agoraphobic with secrets in her past who spends her days and nights spying on her neighbors, drinking, and watching classic movies, especially Hitchcock films. One night, she thinks she sees a crime committed, but will anyone believe her?

You can’t go wrong with a classic mystery like Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, or The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey.


What are you planning on reading on your next vacation?
