Wanted…Books about New Orleans

Christmas in New Orleans. That’s where I’ll be spending the holidays this year on my honeymoon!! I am incredibly excited and looking forward to our trip because I have never been to NoLa. Already, my eat/drink/explore list is a mile long.  

Whenever I visit a new place I go on an exhausting information search. It usually involves google maps, hashtag searches on Instagram, asking friends and family who have visited my vacation destination, and most importantly books! In preparation for the trip, I want to read a few books that take place in “The Big Easy” and I need your help! Below I’ve got a list going of the internet’s recommendations for books on New Orleans. Is it a good list?
