I don’t know about you, but I love going on holiday. Travelling and exploring new places is one of my absolute favourite things to do.
What I do not like, however, is trying to decide which books to take with me on said holiday…
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been agonising about this very issue for a few weeks already. But I’m pleased to say that, with a week to go, I think I’ve finally narrowed it down to just 5 books..
And the winners are…
- Sweet Black Waves by Kristina Perez
I picked this book up at YALC in July after hearing Kristina talk on one of the panels. As soon as she said it was based on the legend of Tristan and Iseult, I was hooked! Arthurian and Celtic myths are some of my favourites, so I can’t wait to give this book a try.
- Beyond A Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake
I got this beauty of a book in a FairyLoot box a couple of months ago, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t dive right in. It sounds like it’ll be right up my street – magic and Vikings and romance, oh my! I’ve heard such good things about this book, so I’m really looking forward to it.
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I’m afraid to say that I’m doing this a bit backwards… I watched the film of #TATBILB first and absolutely adored how cute it was! So naturally I went straight online and ordered myself a copy of the book. I hear Peter and Josh are even more adorable in the book…
- Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
This book has been sitting on my shelf for so long… I’m actually slightly embarrassed. Lots of people have told me this is a great read, and I loved The Darkest Minds Trilogy (also by Alexandra) so I’m hoping I’ll love this. Plus, it has that travel vibe that I need for my holiday…
- Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand
This was another YALC find, thanks to the lovely people at Harper360! I was so excited to get an ARC of this book, as it sounds like it’s going to be a thrilling read. Plus, I love how diverse Claire Legrand is as an author, so I’m interested to see how different this book is compared to her others.
So there we go! Five fun and diverse reads to keep me occupied during my holiday. What’s the betting that I change my mind between now and the weekend…?!
