Calling all bride-to-be bookworms! Put a pause on wedding planning for a hot sec and allow yourself some much needed R&R time this season, curled up with a fabulous book (outdoors, of course). And don't worry, you Type-A brides who won't allow yourself a minute's break—your wedding won't be too far off the brain with any of these novels. We rounded up the best wedding-related summer books that should be on every future bride's reading list this season (or, for those who just love a good breezy romantic read).
For crime-loving brides, we have no shortage of mystery thrillers, from wedding murders (talk about a day ruiner) to a blurry bachelorette weekend gone horribly wrong, truly epitomizing "bach shit cray." On a lighter note, there's I Am BRIDE: How to Take the WE Out of Wedding (and Other Useful Advice) from writer and comedian Laura Willcox, here to offer plenty of wedding wisdom from a witty, satirical perspective. Or, read up on a series of short stories laced with humor via You Think It, I'll Say It by bestselling author Curtis Sittenfeld, one of which involves a honeymooning couple.
Whatever your novel genre of choice, take your pick from any of these nine books for a worthwhile leisure activity that will help you further get in the spirit for your wedding day (well, aside from the murder mysteries, probably).
