Beach Reads

I came across this article over the weekend as I was Pinning travel ideas to my “Wanderlust” board. Planning a trip, but not necessarily taking a trip, can actually boost your mood. Two words: vacation anticipation.

If you can’t take the time for a vacation right now, or even a night out with friends, put something on the calendar—even if it’s a month or a year down the road. Then whenever you need a boost of happiness, remind yourself about it.

Vacation anticipation is something I’ve been experiencing for the past six months and I’m finally in the home stretch. John and I leave for Mexico next week and I couldn’t be more excited. I took my cousin’s advice and have absolutely nothing planned for this vacay (muy dificil for a planner like myself). However, I’ve thought long and hard about the books I’ll be bringing with me. Time to park it on the beach and catch up on my reading list.

1. I can’t wait to finally finish The Goldfinch: a must read.

2. The Traitor’s Wife. I received my copy in the mail last night and have heard this one’s a page-turner. I’m a sucker for American history novels; especially when told from the perspective of a powerful woman.

3. Me Before You. Countless people have recommended this book. According to a review from The New York Times, “When I finished this novel I didn’t want to review it; I wanted to reread it.” SOLD.

  1. Murder in Mexico is my series of eleven mysteries set in and around the upscale expat colony of San Miguel de Allende. Artist Paul Zacher is drawn into crime investigation because ‘he might see things differently.’ Maybe it’s time for the rich humanity of Mexico to show through all the narco headlines! Ready for the real Mexico, beyond the phony news reports? Take a look at this suspenseful and often funny series, available in Print, Kindle, Nook, & Kobo. Start with ‘Twenty Centavos’ by trying a sample on my website.
