5 BOOKS MY TRIP TO ITALY INSPIRED ME TO READ

5 BOOKS MY TRIP TO ITALY INSPIRED ME TO READ

It was only a couple of days ago that I arrived back from an amazing three week trip in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It lasted for twenty-one days, but on the first day I stepped off the plane I was in love. The rolling hills dotted with Cypress trees, the crowds of effortlessly attractive people, and the food made with such care and love. I was in awe that a place like this could exist and I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes! But of course, the book nerd in me needed to take it a bit further.

 I’ve been inspired by all that was around me and now I’m on the hunt for a good book to cure my post-holiday blues. Preferably, one set in Italy. Here are five books that might be my next read and maybe yours too.
