10 Great Books to Read on your Honeymoon

A honeymoon is a time for relaxing by the pool or on the beach with your other half. The mood will be so romantic you won’t want to read any books that are too depressing. 

These books will please every reader - from heavy romance to light chick-lit. If you bring these books along, you’ll be sure to be entertained from the moment you start your honeymoon until you get onto the plane home.


Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling 

We love The Mindy Project and alll things Mindy Kaling. This book includes a wide variety of anecdotes from Mindy's life. All of them are hilarious, although some will make you cringe in sympathy. This is the perfect light book to breeze through on the beach.

50 Shades of Grey by E.L James

If you haven’t gotten a chance to read this famous erotic book yet, your honeymoon is the perfect time to give it a try. We can't wait to see the movie!


The Time Travel’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

This book is so engaging you won’t be able to put it down. This is the story of the lifelong love affair between a time traveller and the woman who eventually becomes his wife. The perfect read if you want a romantic story with a bit of a twist.

In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

This chick-lit book that was adapted into a movie a few years ago is both funny and touching. By the end of the book, you’ll be completely invested in the romantic lives of the main characters. This is another good choice for those long days by the pool.


The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This tearjerker is more romantic than fun.  However, the beautiful love story (which has now be turned into a movie) about two sick teens is full of joyful moments to offset all of the sadness.

Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

If you’ve never read this chick-lit reimagining of Pride and Prejudice, or it’s been a few years since your last re-reading, now is the perfect time to crack the spine open and dig in. Get stuck in to the laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent quest for self-improvement.  


The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje 

If you are looking for a classic, try this Booker Prize-winning novel. Hana cares for a burned nameless patient at the end of World War II, who tells his tale of passion, betrayal, and rescue. This book will draw you in thanks to its beautiful language. 

The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

This tale of a nanny in New York City is both sweet and funny. Take a look at upper class Manhattan society through the eyes of their children's nannies. It’s the perfect type of light read for those days when you don’t have a care in the world.


Bossypants by Tina Fey

Like Mindy Kaling’s memoir, this book of anecdotes about Tina Fey’s life is funny and enlightening. This is a good read for the end of the honeymoon, when you’re starting to think about life in the real world. Tina Fey’s empowering words of wisdom to women will make you want to take your office by storm.

Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell

The collection of essays that inspired the hit TV show is a great last romantic book for your honeymoon. The romantic life of the author will engage you until your last moment on the beach.
