I’m headed out of town soon for a whole two weeks. I haven’t taken such a long vacation since the kids were born. So you can imagine I have romanticized a clear image of relaxing poolside with a beverage and a great book. But we all know I probably have a better chance of just reading on the plane there and back. As I was searching for some amazing vacation options I found more than plenty that sparked my eye this month. Here are my top 10 end of summer books I cant wait to open and get lost with while away.
