Call for Recommendations: New Orleans

I’m ridiculously excited!  The Boyfriend and I are going to New Orleans in September for our 2nd anniversary!  What is even better is that, since he has already been there, but I haven’t, he’s making the plans.  So far, I know that we’re staying in an old hotel full of antique furniture, and our room will have a private balcony overlooking the French Quarter.  We will also be going on a couple different tours, but he hasn’t worked out the details for those yet.

The Boyfriend has requested that I bring along several audiobooks for us to listen to during the long drive.  That’s where I need your help.  I want to listen to and read books set in New Orleans, or Louisiana in general.  However, with the exception of many of Anne Rice’s books and the “Sookie Stackhouse” series, I’m at a loss for what to read.  So, regardless of genre, what would you recommend?

I will try to find your recommendations at the library, and before the Boyfriend and I head off on our trip, I’ll let you all know what books I’ll be taking with me.

    1. The synopsis looks interesting. Unfortunately, my library only has it in physical and ebook formats, but I might check it out to read for myself. Thanks! 🙂


  1. I think Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells is set in New Orleans? It’s been a while since I read it, but I LOOOOOVED it. Also the movie. 🙂

    1. Ooh, I loved that book, and the movie, too! There is no way the Boyfriend will want to listen to that, though, but thanks for the recommendation 🙂
