Sometimes, choosing the book to read on your getaway is just as important as selecting the vacation destination itself. Finding the right read to have on hand at your location—for the beach, or on long train rides, to curl up with before bed, or to devour on the plane ride—has the power to transform the mood of your entire trip. There are hundreds of books—fiction and non-fiction—set in enticing, faraway lands, so we did some of the work for you. Whether you’re headed to a tranquil stay on the Amalfi Coast or a tropical adventure in South America, we’ve got the perfect literary travel companion for you. Sit back, relax—and leave a little extra room in your carry-on. And don’t worry: We’re assuming you’re already well-acquainted with classic travel narratives On the Road, Eat Pray Love, and Wild, so we haven’t included those here!
