5 Perfect Vacation Books

A good vacation book is fast-paced, keeps me interested in the story despite my awesome surroundings, and usually is a pretty long read (because vacations mean we have a lot of time to devote to reading, duh!) . I’ve compiled a list of a few of my favorite books I’ve taken on vacation (or wish I had). Feel free to chime in with yours!

1. The A Court of Thorns and Roses Series

I just read ACOMAF on a vacation, and it was hands down the BEST DECISION I’VE EVER MADE.

2. The Red Rising Trilogy

Red Rising Golden Son Morning Star

Ummmmm YES. This series is a dynamite vacation choice. See why you should read the series here. 

3. The All Souls Trilogy


If you like fantasy, witches, vampires, and/or magic, then this series is FOR YOU. These books are long and super duper gripping, so they are 100% a perfect choice for a vacation.

4. Ready Player One

A stand-alone, but a damn good one. This is a perfect vacation page-turner if I’ve ever read one!

5. Pillars of the Earth

This is actually the first in a series, but since I didn’t finish the trilogy (I only read this one and the next one), I felt like I shouldn’t include the entire trilogy. That being said, this book and it’s sequel, World Without End, were SO GOOD. OMG! This was an Oprah’s Book Club pick back in the day, and I can totally see why. It’s fantastic medieval historical fiction. Reads like a freaking soap!

  1. I am asking myself how come I haven’t heard about the All Souls Trilogy until some months ago… Because it sounds right up of my alley!! 😊
    I actually haven’t read any of those yet but I think they are good choices!! 😜

    1. Haha, well the finale came out in 2014, so it’s a few years old. That might be why? But it’s a fantastic read – you should definitely consider it if you like that sort of stuff!

  2. I’ve only read ACOTAR and ACOMAF on this list! Definitely great vacation reads (and by vacation, I mean stay inside and binge read it cover to cover hahaha).

    Red Rising and Ready Player One are books I want to try to get to sooner rather than later
