My top 5 Reads for Travel


I love books, but of course, you already know that. There is just so much about books that I love. The feeling of holding the book in your hand, and then smelling it. Yes, I smell my books. When I go to a bookstore to look for a new read it is almost like deciding on a sweater or jacket. I take my time and really get to know the book. I read the back and then I read the first fifty pages.

Reading the first fifty pages will help you decide if you will like the book.

The point is I don’t rush when selecting a book. In fact, I actually do a bit of research on books that I may find interesting BEFORE heading to the book store. Knowing that bit of information probably has you wondering how in the world I was able to pick out just five books for the plane. Well, the truth is I started to make the list back in February when we decided we were moving this year.

Why five? Well, it is a fifteen-hour flight! And to be honest I may not want to read a certain book during a particular time. One has to be in the mood for a romance novel or not be mentally fatigued to read a twisting mystery novel. Oh and I do have one for mindfulness, it is a crossword puzzle! You know for fun!

The five books I’ll be reading:

  1. Under Occupation by Allan Furst
  2. Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas
  3. The Ragged Edge of Night by Olivia Hawk
  4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (French Version with audio)
  5. Sanditon by Jane Austen

I may add another book, one that I have already read should the mood strike me. Honestly, it is hard to choose only five books but I think these are great choices.

What books are you planning on reading this summer? Or if you are traveling, perhaps camping, what books are you bringing with you?
