Vacation Beach Reads.

Vacation starts this coming Friday for me.  I get five days on a beach in the West Indies.  All I need to make this qualify as a good vacation vacation are:

  • 100 SPF sunblock
  • Beach umbrella
  • Beach chair
  • Sunshine
  • The occasional glass of wine
  • A Wifi connection
  • The Husband
  • Something to read
  • Make that a couple of somethings to read

I need at least three to four books to devour while on vacation. I have gotten a few recommendations from people (the Fifty Shades of Gray series), but reading the synopses do nothing for me.  But while walking the aisles of Barnes and Noble yesterday, I found two classics that caught my eye...



Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar" and Ernest Hemingway's memoir A Moveable Feast."

Truth be told... The Hemingway book caught my eye because I love Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris." One of my favorite movies of all time.

I still need at least one book to get me through those five days.  I have downloaded the first Game of Thrones book. So maybe that will suffice. But if you have any recommendations for me, please leave them in the comments.
