Our honeymoon was 18 days total with 40 hours of that being on airplanes. Let’s just say I read A LOT, enough to make an entire Honeymoon Reading List. I tried really really hard to not do a ton of work on the trip minus shooting and storying. I pre-wrote all my posts and shot all of the campaigns I needed to do so I could truly just enjoy and relax. That meant I got to do what I love the most: read. I wanted to squeeze in one last book post before the big Summer Book post I am planning on doing – check out last year’s here.

Honeymoon Reading List
UPDATE: I have JUST started reading again since I got pregnant on this trip – the irony! BUT after attending RISE conference I downloaded SO many good business books based on recommendations by the speakers at the conference. Here is a round-up since we got a request on DM!
This was the only hardcover book I brought. Since I had four bags, I wanted to keep the weight minimal – and thank goodness I did because I got totally screwed by AirAsia – but I am not here to complain about that! The rest, I read on my Kindle Fire which I got a few Christmases ago. I read this book out on the boat when we went fishing – I had planned to read just a little bit in between the fishing action, but surprise surprise I finished the entire thing! It was SO good!
Okay, so technically I read this before we left. But I had no idea I would finish it so quickly. This is by the same writer as 50 Shades of Grey – please don’t judge me. But this one was a little different — a lot less BDSM and more romance! I started it on a whim getting my nails done right before the wedding and finished it that night.
Reading a book about missing girls in a foreign country while I was literally on my way around the world probably wasn’t the best idea in hindsight, but oh well. This book was an amazing thriller and had me hooked. I woke up in the middle of the night to finish it because of the time change.
Probably a little cliche to read on a honeymoon, but this was a nice and easy romcom type book. It’s been on my Kindle for quite a while, so it was good to finally get the time to read it. I liked everything about it minus the whole Dodgers thing, #BEATLA.
I love love loved Tracey Garvis Graves first book, so when I saw she had a new one come out, I ordered it immediately. As someone with anxiety, this book struck home for me. Although, mine is nowhere near Annika’s (I don’t want to give anything away) – it was such an interesting look into her brain, and I also did not see the plot twist at the end coming — at all!
Such a quick and easy read! This is so great if you love mysteries and family drama! The paperback is only $6!
I had really high hopes for this book – but my standards for these types of books were set high by Ellen Hopkins’ Crank. An interesting look inside the mind of mental illness, but I wasn’t obsessed.
This book reminds me of the old show, Revenge, from the plot to the setting, it was very similar. I also finished this one super fast. It’s not crazy long, but a really good look into the different classes in the Hamptons. The plot twists just kept coming!
This is the first official “beach read” of the summer – you guys know these are my FAVORITE books every single year — and my cart is full of the ones that are coming out over the next few weeks; I am planning a full post on this! Definitely different than her usual summer reads because it’s more of a mystery but I loved it!
This one is free if you have Kindle Unlimited! I have been utilizing this more and more – I am the worst when it comes to taking advantage of all the Amazon Prime perks, and I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
I thought I would love this book a lot more than I actually did — maybe because I read it on the flight home and I was tired and just not feeling it. It was still interesting but I only give it 6/10!
There were three books that I bought, but didn’t get to! Those are linked below and next up on my list!
