Lets Talk about Packing: Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Lets get down to business I hate packing. Ugh, how I dread it so.

I’m heading off to San Diego and Los Angeles tomorrow, and of course I haven’t even started to pack all my things. I’m currently at my house on Cape Cod trying to compile my pre departure list that I write out before every trip I take. It includes everything that I need to bring: passport/id, toiletries, snacks for the plane, travel journal, my favorite pair of converse, chic sunglasses, and of course my Kindle.

Lets take a break from the cons of having to pack and instead talk about my one of my favorite parts of pre traveling: adding books to my Kindle. Basically, I’m obsessed. I’m a frequent visitor at the local library in my town, so I have always considered myself to be an avid reader, but once I got my Kindle my reading has gotten out of control. Seriously, I can finish a novel in at least two days and then on to the next book. Some of my favorite genres are thrillers, mysteries, and memoirs.

Here are the books I have loaded for this upcoming trip… Enjoy!

The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro

Shaprio writes this fictionalized thriller about the museum heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum. An artist agrees to help forge a famous Degas painting, but something doesn’t seem right to her. I’m a big art lover and I love a good thriller. Also, I went to college is Boston and the Gardener Museum is one of my favorites so I had to read this novel. I’ve always been very intrigued as to what happened to the missing artwork from the real heist.

Driving Hungry: A Memoir by Layne Mosler

This novel has been on my list for a while now, so I’ve very excited to finally have downloaded it. It combines my love for food and travel, what else could I ask for. Mosler takes us on her adventure from Buenos Aires to New York City to Berlin in the search of good food while driven by her wanderlust.

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Rounding out my book collection for my trip to the west coast is In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. I first heard about this book from a Popsugar article about book recommendations from Reese Witherspoon. It’s a mystery thriller about a bachelorette weekend that goes completely wrong when the main character wakes up in a hospital bed with no idea how she got there or what happened.
