I’ve been wanting to make this post for weeks now but I got kind of anxious about it. Idk why. But I finally figured out which books I’ll be bringing on vacation and I’m going to talk about them!
In the past couple of months, I’ve read quite a few ARCs and I have bought a lot of books I wanted to read, but never got to actually read those. A lot of those backlist books I’ll be bringing with me, and I’m trying to read all my ARCs before I leave so I can write and schedule all the reviews.
In a couple of weeks, I will be away on vacation, and I do not know to what extent I will have access to internet so sorry in advance if I reply late to your email/comment/message. I will most likely not catch up with all your wonderful blogs, because that is just not doable (and it’s a vacation so it’s time to just relax and read). I will try to reply to all of the messages at least when I get home.
What I will do on vacation is hopefully read a lot of books! I’ll be going to Vienna and Budapest (and the rest of Hungary) with my parents and without the rest of my siblings, so that’s weird for me. But the pup is going so I won’t be lonely 😛
Be prepared for a long post!
What I’ll read before I leave
The Butterfly on Fire is a review request that has been waiting for me forever and it’s making me feel guilty that I haven’t read it yet.
I’m rereading Cinder with the YA Book Bloggers group on goodreads and I just started and I love this series so much!
Haven’t you heard me squeal about Girls Made of Snow and Glass yet?? I requested from the publisher AND THEY ACTUALLY SENT IT TO ME!! That’s huge because a) it’s my first physical ARC (except for one I won in a giveaway) and b) I’m an international blogger and most publishers don’t send out ARCs easily to internationals. But anyway, this book is a feministic retelling of Snow White and it has magic and it’s dark and I love it already!
What I’ll be bringing on my vacation
Most of these books are ebooks and I don’t know why but I have the tendency to get ebooks of contemporaries and physical copies of fantasy and sci-fi books.
Am I weird?
The Unexpected Everything has been high on my tbr since I read and loved Since You’ve Been Gone. I think that was the perfect summer read so my expectations of The Unexpected Everything are high!
Isla and the Happily Ever After I want to read so I can finish the trilogy. I liked the other two books a lot and they were really quick and fun reads for me so I’ll probably feel the same way about this one.
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life has been recommended to me many times and I really enjoyed Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe so I can’t wait to get into it!
Queens of Geek sounds so lovely, it’s diverse and sounds like a lot of fun. Plus, I’m a geek so I’ll probably enjoy this!
Let’s Get Lost has been on my shelves for a while but I’ve been saving it for my vacation because it’s a road trip book!
I have been anticipating reading all of these books for so long and I can’t believe I haven’t read them yet.
Today I went out and got the rest of the Darker Shades of Magic trilogy and now they’re all up on my shelf bugging me to read them and I can’t wait!
Crooked Kingdom, I LOVED Six of Crows and again, I can’t wait.
I had been anticipating Heartless from even before it came out and I’ve had it on my shelves for the longest time but I just haven’t picked it up yet… But what if I’m one of those people that love all Marissa Meyer’s other books and hates this one??? I don’t want to be part of that club!
A Million Worlds With You is the third book in the Firebird trilogy and it has become kind of a tradition to read those books on my vacation. The first one I read two years ago on vacation, the second last year, so now it’s time to the third!
I have heard so many good things about This Savage Song and I am finally going to read Schwab’s books and I think I will love them! (I hope)
Illuminae is one of the prettiest books I’ve ever seen and I’m 90% sure I’ll love it and pick up Gemina as soon as I get back home to continue the series.
The Bone Season I got for a large discount (because the cover was a little misprinted) and I heard great things about it, I don’t know what it’s about but I’d like to keep it that way!
This list is really long, but I do usually read a lot of books on my vacation. Usually, I bring about 10 books for a 3,5-week vacation and end up reading some of my little sister’s as well. It’s crazy. But without internet, I’m not distracted and I spend most of my mornings and evenings solely reading. It’s lovely.
I don’t know what I’m going to read when I return from my vacation but I’ll figure that out when I return in the second half of August!
