Essential holiday reads!

When we’re not working late hours or through the weekends (and sometimes on our holidays…ahem), The Luxe Nomad girls love to read. Here, we share our favourite reads that you can digest either by the beach or curled up in bed.


Steph (Chief Nomad) – The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren



“The author describes the book as an “anti-self-help-book” and instead explains how the quest for personal fulfilment, satisfaction and meaning can only be found in understanding a person’s role on this earth.”


Alena (Sales and Marketing Nomad) – The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje



“Ondaatje’s prose is so visual that you could almost mistake the story as being told from his point of view. This book takes the reader from Colombo to England, on a ship journey with a motley crew of characters!”


Alex (PR Nomad) – On The Road by Jack Kerouac 



“I enjoyed the spirit of this book; the carefree craziness of it. Taking a road trip in the 50s in America was so much more adventurous or reckless then, depending on how you see it.”


Elaine (Sales Nomad) – Life of Pi by Yann Martel



“Inspiring and enchantingly told, this recent Oscar-winning tale takes you on a journey of one boy’s self-discovery amidst an unbelievably dramatic backdrop. A classic.”


Jen-Lin (Operations Nomad) – Ideaspotting by Sam Harrison



“Love Sam Harrison’s bite size inspirations to think outside the box, on the basis that ideas are everywhere. What better way to do this while on holiday, exploring new things?”


Alia (Wordsmith Nomad) – The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho 



“If you’ve ever doubted your dream, this fable is one reason why you shouldn’t. Follow the shepherd boy Santiago as he achieves the impossible and you’ll want to take the road to find your treasure too!”


Bonus read:


The TLN Team – Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert



“We’re not fans of her latest book ‘Committed’, but this story of a woman’s quest to find everything is inspiring and humorous. Who wouldn’t want to take a year off and eat pasta, practise yoga and find love?”

    Totally agree on Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Committed” and “Eat Pray Love”. Try Stephen King’s “22/11/63” – totally un-putdownable – and I dont even normally read Stephen King.
