For short or long flights, I always carry a book or magazine, or several books and magazines, with me. I can only watch so much tv on my iPad or listen to so much music before I am in need of a different type of distraction. I'm a huge reader so, before my trip this weekend, I did a bit of research into some books that might be great for poolside reading or in flight entertainment.
Outlander // A woman in 1945 touches some henge stones in Scotland and is instantly transported back in time to 18th century Scotland and discovers a whole new world of adventure and romance. I happened to discover this book after I began watching the television show on Starz and I was totally hooked. It's a thick book, but definitely a great read.
Beautiful Ruins // This is perfect beach read. A story of romance and mystery along the Italian coast. The book does such a good job describing the settings in the book that it makes you feel like you are there. It's fantastic read.
Something Borrowed // I absolutely loved this movie so of course I had to book up the book. It is just as cute as the movie. If you're looking to read a romantic comedy, then this is the book you should pick up.
The Light Between Oceans // This is the one book on my list that I haven't read yet, so it will obviously be the one that I'm bringing with me for my flight and poolside reading. The book is about a barren couple that live in a lighthouse that discover a baby who washes up on shore and their share life together. I find lighthouses terribly romantic for some reason so I'm really excited to read this book!
Coastal Living // For when the novels get too be too much and you just want to flip through something with pretty pictures, I always love to pull out a copy of Coastal Living. It's literally filled with gorgeous pictures of beachside cottages and ocean adjacent homes that can't help, but relax me.
Cosmopolitan // Cosmo is the perfect beachside read for any girl who wants to skim through some fun articles and interviews and find the latest products to try out.
People Style Watch // Fashion and beauty addicts get their fix with People magazine and it makes the easiest poolside read, no intense thoughts required.
