Summer is the perfect time for fun, quick, and light-hearted reads. Even though I don’t actually get a summer vacation anymore (waaaah!), I still seem to read more books during this season than any other. Without further ado, here is my travel-inspired summer reading list for 2015.
This book is by the same author who wrote Lunch in Paris, and I’m always a fan of a memoir that includes recipes. Amazon describes it as “an American learning the tricks of French motherhood, a family finding a new professional passion, and a cook’s initiation into classic Provencal cuisine.” These are all things I can get on board with!
A girl shipped off to french boarding school and a cute french boy named Etienne St. Clair… in my world it doesn’t get any better than this. I know this is young-adult fiction, but sometimes a sweet and innocent romance is just what the doctor ordered.
An American family vacationing in Mallorca, Spain and all the drama that goes with it. I’m guessing this will be hilarious and will probably bring back some funny and painful memories from my own family vacations.
Funny + Romantic + Italian Coast = a book I’m going to love! I’m really looking forward to this one and I’ve only heard good things. What is it about historical romances?
I’m a big fan of anything Diane Johnson writes and I saw this movie with Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts many years ago. I think it’s time I actually read the book. Did I mention it takes place in Paris and discusses all sorts of Parisian nuances? Yes, Please!
Oh jeez, Jenny, another Paris book on the list! What can I say, I’m a bit of a Francophile. This memoir about a fashion journalist in 1980s Paris should be full of all sorts of interesting French tidbits.
Have you read any of these? Is there anything you would add to the list? I’d love to hear!
