Guten Morgen, Leute! This week, I’ve been going on roadtrip after roadtrip, barely being in Seattle at all and while it’s been fun, it’s also been hectic. Today my family is driving out of Western Washington and into the Eastern Washington desert for some camping. So naturally I need somethingn to entertain myself with on the 5-6 hour drive. And for me, that’s books. So, here are some books that I recommend for roadtrips! Los geht’s!
- Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson is a perfect book to read for a roadtrip–especially in summer. Really, it’s just a really quick fun, summery read and I highly recommend it!
- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson is another book I’d recommend for a summer roadtrip! Contemporaries are easy to fly through and this is no exception! It’s just a whole lot of fun in general!
- Pretty much anything by Georgette Heyer (especially her renowned Regency Romances) are pretty good for roadtrips if you like historical romance. Heyer is a master of the genre and I highly recommend her books especially if you like a good funny book! For this trip I’m going on today, I am planning on reading These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer and I can’t wait to get further into it!
- Rereading books is also something that I enjoy doing for roadtrips. Sometimes it’s nice to just delve back into a story that you know that you love and pass the hours immersing yourself inside that story once again.
- The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice would indeed take a very long roadtrip to complete but you probably could burn your way through one or two of them. They’re fun reads and I’ve always found that I love reading them when there’s virtually nothing else for me to do!
- Classics, I find, are books that (most) people have difficulty reading due to the fact that the writing fails to capture and hold their attention. But I believe that roadtrips might just be the perfect time in which one might be able to find themselves the opportunity to sit down and read a classic they’ve been wanting to read for a while!
- Plays and short stories, to me, are perfect for roadtrips. Of course, depending on the lengths of these stories and how quickly uou read, you may neeed to bring several with you but I find that oftentimes shorter works seem very enchanting to me when I’m on a roadtrip.
And that’s it for me today! What is your favorite trip you’ve been on?
