Beachy reads?

Hi ladies! I need your help... I'm looking for some fabulous reading material for lounging on the beaches of Fiji for my honeymoon. I want to bring a couple of fun books: girly, beachy, chic lit. Here are some books that I have adored to give you an idea of my literary taste.

LOVE Plum Sykes. Bergdorf Blondes and The Debutante Divorcée are tres fab.
I recently finished Social Climbers by Beth Dunn, and she is just as charming in her book as she is on her blog.
The entire Shopaholic series. While Becky Bloomfield is a bit extreme and a tad out of control, I completely empathized with her and the thrill of the sale. And wouldn't it be such fun to have her as a shopping partner in crime?
Anything by Emily Giffin. Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof... all fab.
The Devil Wears Prada. The book and the movie are both tops in my book.
What books can you read over and over again? I would LOVE your suggestions, lovelies!
4 DAYS to I do!!!

chasing harry winston by lauren weisberger
strapless by leigh riker
the art of undressing by stephanie lehmann
my life in pink and green by lisa greenwald
the secret history of the pink carnation by lauren willig
for better or for worse by carole matthews
divas las vegas by belinda jones (everything by her is amazing!)
apocalipstick by sue margolis

i suggest going by your local goodwill and looking there. they often have great beach reads and if they get wet or you leave them at the hotel (make room for gifts and souvenirs) you wont have spent a fortune on new books

I'm with ATL Belle, Chasing Harry Winston is fabulous!! You would love it!

Chasing Harry Winston is an excellent book, I completely agree ladies! Lauren Weisberger's other book is good too - Everyone Worth Knowing.
The Sleeping Beauty Proposal and The Cinderella Pact by Sarah Strohmeyer are a couple of my favorites, and I recently got sucked into the Pretty Little Liars series (kind of juvenile, but easy reads and they suck you right in!). Also, anything by Cecelia Ahern is good as well.

Sara said...
