I love bringing light happy reads when I go on vacation. Fluffy, lovey, annoyingly
cute reads that go by quick. Contemporary is my go to grab for vacations. I have a 3-hour drive there and back on my family summer trip, so I need something that can hold me over for the whole ride.
Yes, I’m one of those freaks that can read in the car. I know, I know, most people get headaches or car sick if they read in a moving vehicule. For me, it’s the opposite. I’ve been taking long car rides since birth. I am trained to be able to just sit in a car and be okay, no bathroom, no food, just read a book and listen to music or a movie.
So I picked up three little fluffy books for my trip this year. I grabbed Once and For All by Sarah Dessen, a standalone novel about a girl named Louna that is the daughter of a famed wedding planner. Louna is an anti-happily-ever-after girl until she meets a bad boy along the way that has her question her hatred of love.
The second book I got was The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. This is one of the first adult novels that I am taking a crack at. I typically stick to YA but this book caught my eye. The book followed identical twins who happen to live in Nantucket, how summer-y, that have not spoken in years but are brought together by a family crisis. It’s supposed to be the summer read of the year. Elin Hilderbrand is known for writing good summer reads and I am excited to dip my toes in her novel.
The last book I grabbed and the book I am most excited for is How To Love by Katie Cotugno. I love Katie Cotugno’s writing and I could not wait for to get my hands on this novel. This book features a teen pregnancy, a lost love and of course romance. There is a lot of negative reviews for the book though which worries me but I am excited nonetheless.
One of my favourite magazines of all time is Cosmo. I am an avid reader. I have a
monthly subscription. My ultimate dream is to be able to work for Cosmo. I got the August and September issues in the mail and I’ve been waiting for the trip to read them. I do in fact read a magazine cover to cover. I’m one of those old people. I thought they would be great to read with my but on the sand and toes in the water.
I plan to either review or go a bit more in-depth with these books when I come back from vacation.
