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.

5. For Everyone: The Book with No Pictures by BJ Novak

Here’s a book the whole family can enjoy. Parents will enjoy reading it to the kids at bedtime and kids will enjoy reading it to each other. Who wouldn’t enjoy saying the words Glibbity Globbity out loud?

No one, that’s who. But be careful. You might get kicked out of the hotel for laughing too loud as your family enjoys The Book With NO Pictures again and again. And again.

I guarantee if you take every single one of these books with you on vacation you will have a good time. To be sure, you’ll pay the extra heavy baggage fees at the airport, but so what? Magic is waiting.
