Book Thought – Cruise Reads

In mid-October, I will be going away on a cruise for my friend’s Bachelorette party.  I’m super excited to go and looking forward to the cruise, but this morning I was thinking about what books to bring with me!

Some people think cruise and automatically think girlie reads.  I’m not much of a chick-lit fan, and while I might read a chick-lit occasionally, it’s just not my thing.

When I think of a vacation, especially a cruise, I think of reading something that I am dying to read!

Here are some of my top choices for this trip:

The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani – I’ve loved all of her other books and heard great things about this one as well! 

Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood – Atwood is amazing and this book is partially about jail, so perfect!

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Too many book reviewers are saying this is a must-read!

The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan – A book written all in dictionary definitions? Sounds super interesting!


What do you think is a great cruise read?

Thanks for reading,

  1. Usually when I go on vacation I bring books but never really get much reading accomplished.

    I have nit read Alias Grace but I love Margaret Atwood, so I would vote for her book!


  2. Some times you remind me so much of myself that it’s scary 😉 When people talk about “beach reads” or “summer books” I always think, huh? I read what I read when I wanna read it! But enough about me, lol.

    I vote for either Gone Girl or The Shoemaker’s Wife because I’ve heard wonderful things about the both of them.


    • Love it! Beach read should not = chick lit. It should be whatever you want to read at the beach!

      I just always end up taking too many books on a trip because of the “what if I finish and don’t have another book to read????” But that’s the best thing about e-readers! I can have tons of books with me that way. Although I’m a back and forth e-reader. I do a digital read and then miss my physical books, so I have to switch back and forth.
