10 Books to Read on Vacation For Fans of Women’s Fiction
For today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I’m presenting “10 Books to Read on Vacation” for fans of uplit women’s fiction.
I’m linking up today with #TopTenTuesday: That Artsy Reader Girl: Ten Books I Read While On Vacation.
I have read each of these books but I haven’t read all of these books while on vacation. However, I can enthusiastically recommend each one for an engaging vacation read because they are entertaining and on the lighter side. What type of books do you like to read on vacation?
In no particular order, let me introduce you to a few of my vacation read recs….
The Bodyguard by Katherine Center
I often look to Katherine Center for a light, fun (closed door) romcom.
Kit McBride Gets a Wife by Amy Barry
Fun romcom with a quirky main character and a unique premise.
The Invisible Husband of Frick Island by Colleen Oakley
The Matchmaker’s Gift by Lynda Cohen Loigman
Unique and heartfelt story involving the Jewish tradition of matchmaking.
Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? by Lizzie Damilola Blackburn
A diverse read with fun characters, family, and friendship.
Vicarage Series (4) by Kate Hewitt
Engaging and poignant “uplit” featuring four adult sisters, family drama, and sides of romance (bedroom door shut tight!). (the first in the series is a novella)
The Wedding Veil by Kristy Woodson Harvey
Histfic/Women’s Fiction mashup with moderate open door romance.
Nora Goes Offscript by Annabel Monaghan
Fast-paced, lively, and witty romcom with open door romance (steamy scenes can be easily skipped).
The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle by Jennifer Ryan
Histfic/Women’s Fiction mashup (England during WW11) with heartwarming friendships (you might also like The Kitchen Front by the same author).
Our Last Days in Barcelona by Chanel Cleeton
Espionage, light suspense, and sister drama.
There are sooooo many more (I must stop!), but these are the first “10 Books To Read on Vacation” that come to mind.
Did you have a favorite vacation read this year?

I need to read Jennifer Ryan. I think both of her books look really good!
I think you’d enjoy them Marg! 🙌
Fab list Carol! I think I have a few of these on my tbr!
All TBR worthy! 🙌
Just about all of these are on my TBR and a few are on my Kindle – ready for the December holidays! I think I’ll start with The Invisibly Husband of Frick Island.
Thanks for all these lovely recommendations!
I hope you enjoy Invisible Husband Mareli! 🙌
I love this twist, Carol. I read the first Vicarage book and didn’t continue. Knowing the others were all good, I will be adding it. I have read a few of these and have a few more on my TBR. I will keep them in mind for my winter sojourn to Florida.
Maybe I found the vicarage books through you? They are lovely light uplit options for Florida!
Maybe you did. 🤷♀️ I agree, they sound perfect for reading by the pool in Florida.
I loved The Bodyguard 💕
Such a fun read! I love the author!
YInka, Where is Your Huzband sounds good!
My post: https://lydiaschoch.com/top-ten-tuesday-types-of-books-i-read-on-vacation/
It’s a fun read! 🙌
Oh, I like your take on the topic! Good work.
Thanks Lisa! 🙌💖
Nice tweak for today. I read The Bodyguard and thought it was okay, I just couldn’t get past all the language.
Thanks Cindy! I hear you about the language…not my preference either.
I read about half of these (I liked them a bit more than you). Can’t wait to revisit the McBrides. That was a fun book!
I’m looking forward to the next McBride book as well!
I enjoyed your post, Carol.

Thanks for visiting Claire!
The Bodyguard and The Matchmaker’s Gift were both fun reads!
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
I agree! So fun! 🙌
Great choices, Carol. Several of these are on my TBR.
Thanks Janet! Happy reading!
Great list! I actually read The Bodyguard on my vacation. The Matchmaker was such a good book too.
Great list! I haven’t read any of these, but I’m really looking forward to THE WEDDING DRESS CIRCLE. I love Jennifer Ryan’s books.
It’s a good one! Enjoy!
So many good ones! I love the mix of historical and rom-coms!
A mashup of genres is fun!
