5 Books Perfect for Reading on the Plane

There are people who enjoy plane rides and there are people who don’t. Whichever you are, being on a plane can become a bit obnoxious every now and then and in those moments where we just want to escape from our confining little seats, our best friends (books) come to save us. I don’t think that there is just one description of what makes a book the best choice to read on the plane, I believe it is up to each individual person. In my opinion, the best books for this case are those that capture you from the first pages, whether they’re thrillers, romantic or adventure books! Up next, I’ll be sharing 5 of my favorites with you.
Rainbow Rowell (the author of this novel) has mastered the art of creating addictive books. Somehow, anything she writes makes you feel involved with the characters, draws you in and makes you want to keep on reading forever. This quality is very present in all of her books, especially in this charming novel that deals with the topic of finding yourself again and returning to your roots. I highly recommend it.
2. The Girl on the Train
Once I finished reading this book, I had no words to describe it. It is, in my opinion, the perfect mystery: a disappearance, a murder, and tons of super interesting characters that become involved with each other in surprising ways. Every new page brings a new mystery, a new discovery and endless possibilities on who to suspect. If you’re looking for a completely absorbing read, this book is for you.
3. The Rosie Project
This novel is not like any other: with a main character that’ll remind you of Sheldon Cooper and his decision to find his future wife, you’ll never know what to expect. This is one of those books that make you stop mid-page, hold close against your chest, laugh and take a moment to appreciate how well thought-out and written it is. This is one of my personal favorites.
4. The One Plus One
A single mom, her children, and a near-stranger go on a journey. This is (in a very simplified description) the plot for another great hit from the author of Me Before You, Jojo Moyes. This beautiful book deals with characters who are ordinary and extraordinary at the same time, their problems and how they face life. It is a positivity-inducing novel and leaves readers feeling all warm and fuzzy.
5. Murder on the Orient Express
This book is a classic written by the expert mystery author, Agatha Christie, and it doesn’t disappoint. It is written in a very dynamic way, which makes it easy to read in one sitting and very enjoyable. I must admit that at some moments I thought the book was a little predictable, but it always found a way to surprise me and the ending truly left a lasting impression on me.
Each person likes spending their flight in a different way, but in my opinion, there is no better company for a long ride than a good book and, with one of these, I can assure you that your time in the plane will seem like no time at all.
