Moms Must Read:
Beach Reads for Everyone in the Family 

Vacation books hold a special place in my heart. When I go on vacation I like to take at least 3 books with me: a comfort book, usually in the style with which I’m familiar. It’s my fall back book in case choices 2 and 3 don’t work out.

The other two types of books I like to take are chick lit/romance and then a mystery/thriller. Since I usually only read one adult (non) fiction book per month (usually through a bookclub) I don’t have too much of a chance to spread my literary wings. That’s what vacation is for; it’s a chance to venture away from what you usually read. It’s a literary vacation!

Thrillers and romances are always good choices when on vacation because its fun to imagine you’re caught up in a different activity, while you’re relaxing. You can escape from your vacation. It’s like two vacations in one! And who doesn’t love heart pounding adventure?

So here are books that will suit everyone on vacation. Pack an extra suitcase or download these on your device and get ready to enjoy yourself.

Think modern day Robin Hood. Dark, brooding, scary. Wolves?

A world of gods and monsters. An elemental power, rising. This is Robin Hood, reborn, as he has never been seen before…

Robin Loxley is seven years old when his parents disappear without a trace. Years later the great love of his life, Marian, is also taken from him. Driven by these mysteries, and this anguish, Robin follows a darkening path into the ancient heart of Sherwood Forest. What he encounters there will leave him transformed, and will alter forever the legend of Robin Hood.

Your brother will be sleeping with the light on.
