Reading List for Spring Break

There really is nothing more enjoyable to me than getting into a good book.  I prefer reading under a big umbrella at the beach, but I am just as happy curled up on the couch with my dogs and a blanket.  Luckily, it is almost time for Spring Break and I am going to get to enjoy my favorite pastime at the beach!  With that in mind, I have been on the look out for some good books to load onto my Kindle.  So far I am thinking about these books:

books march 15

top: What She Left Behind  / The Nightingale  /  The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics  //  middle: The Silent Sister  / Secrets of a Charmed Life  /  On the Island  //  bottom: At the Water’s Edge: A Novel  /  Station Eleven: A novel  /  One Lavender Ribbon

    I loved The Nightingale. Really fabulous!! Another terrific and quick book is nearly anything by Jojo Moyes – but I just read The Ship of Brides which I totally enjoyed. Reading Dead Wake right now (about Lusitania) which is off to a great start. Now I will look into your suggestions for my beach escape!

  2. The only one of these I have read is The Boys in the Boat and I cannot recommend it highly enough – a fantastic story, so well written. I am looking for my next read and will check out your picks. Have a great trip!

  3. Station Eleven is SO good … for sure one of my favorite novels in many years. xx

  4. Ridgely,
    Thanks for the list. I clicked on The Secrets of a Charmed Life and was immediately drawn into the story. I am currently reading the new Eric Larson book Dead Wake, the Last Crossing of the Lusitania, which is also very good. After that, I am working down your list.

    not sure if it’ll be out in time for Spring Break, but I recommend “The Pocket Wife” by Susan Crawford !

    I just finished State of Wonder by Ann Patchett which was fantastic and The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning, which is the first in a trilogy about sisters who started a glass business in Germany in the 1890s. Can’t wait to read the other two books. I want to read The Nightingale and The Narrow road to the Deep North. Enjoy your Spring Break.

    I was literally just having a conversation with my best friend about how I’ve been looking for a few books to take to the beach! She told me to take “Holy Fool, Holy Father” by Nicholas A. Marziani Jr., Thanks for these ideas, these will be perfect for a week away!
