Vacation Books

21 Jul

20170720_195004

I think I’ve narrowed down what books I’m bringing with me on vacation. There’s Chase helping me (when he wasn’t playing with my hair) make the final decision.

  • Pantomime by Laura Lam – a young adult fantasy novel centering around an intersex protagonist. With magic! And the circus!
  • The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner – centered around a thief that boasts he can steal anything, he’s put to the test to steal something straight out of a legend. There’s a map and a cast of characters at the back of the book too, so you know it’s serious fantasy!
  • Skyborn by David Dalglish – I’ve mentioned David Dalglish before on this blog because I loved his Shadowdance series. Skyborn is the first of a new series from him and I’m excited to read it!
  • The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser – This book stars characters that can do what the title suggests: jump into books and interact with the stories therein. What reader hasn’t wished for that ability?
  • Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I gushed about Six of Crows, the first book of this duology, and I’m so looking forward to dedicating the time to read this sequel!

Have you read any of these books? Do you have a favorite story that you bring with you on vacations?

    If it’s a real vacation, as opposed to just a trip I am taking with my child, I will load my kindle up with as many books as I can download. Everything I did not quite get around to in the last….however long. I think I killed a dozen books on a ten day trip to Europe this past winter.

      I love how you consider a child-free vacation a “real” vacation, haha! xD I can totally imagine what you mean, though. I love having reading marathons on vacations! ❤

        I home school my special needs child. That’s a 24/7 commitment most weeks. Vacation with him just changes the venue I am doing that in. LOL
