A very quick read is the book P.S. I Love You. I watched the movie on the boat and fellin love with it. I picked up the book at the airport since I know the books are usually different than the movie. It is very different. It's about 500 pages and I got through it in 2 days. Very quick, very entertaining, and has a nice little appreciate your hubby theme :)

Fifteen Minutes of Shame by Lisa Daily is a fun, quick, easy read.  I just read if for my "Chick Lit" book club that I'm in.  Also, the books by Emily Giffin are fun.  Three of them are Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Love the One You're With.

Light and fun -- have you tried any books by Sophie Kinsella?  I like "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (there are sequels to that one too) and "Can You Keep a Secret?"

I second anything by Sophie Kinsella and Emily Giffin, I also love Jennifer Weiner ( she wrote In Her Shoes- if you've seen that movie). I'm jealous because I am going on my honeymoon soon too and I've already read all of these!!

I love the Sophie Kinsella books. I recommend reading them in order. I always read them when I travel and get through them in 2 days.


Since it's your honeymoon you might not want to read the since they are SO addicting ;)

Eds923- if you like historical novels, let me know, I have some great suggestions for you. Basically, if you have any genre you are partial to, let me know and I will give you suggestions for that... I love books.

i like sophie kinsella too...but the shopaholic series is addicting, so you're like "i want the next one!"  so maybe one of her other ones (undomestic godess, can you keep a secret).  beware, the shopoholic series can be kind of infuriating sometimes, but once you get used to the lead character it's all good.


sophie kinsella is madeline wickham's pen name so there are some good books under her actual name too (the gatecrasher, cocktails for three)


i also like jane green (jemima j, to have and to hold, the other woman)


or....if you like bridget jones and haven't read the books (by helen fielding)...they are super funny!!!


GL!
