Beach Reads

While we were on our honeymoon, I finally had a chance to get into some new books. There is almost nothing I love more than reading an easy chick-lit book under an umbrella in some tropical location - and these books will totally take you there.

The first book I read was The Best of Us by Sarah Pekkenan. 

The story follows four mid-thirties couples to a beach vacation in Jamaica. The story has some glamorous appeal, but this book is so much more than cover - or title - leads on. I think everyone will relate with at least one of the women in the book and I found it it to be an easy, well written book.


I was surprised that the Devil Wears Prada sequel didn't get much buzz, but Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger came out in June and I loved it.

I read - and saw the movie - for the Devil Wears Prada, and I had I found myself very curious to see where Andie and Emily and Miranda all were. The story picks up 10 years later, with Andie and Emily as best friends - and co-workers of a bridal magazine. The book unfolds well, although it's a bit predictable. I didn't love the ending, but this was a really fun book and I would high recommend it.

Please share if you have any great beach reads that I can put on my list!
