Howdy! By the time this goes up I will officially be on vacation. Nothing too exciting but I will hanging out with my family and chilling out. My posting may be a bit sporadic while I am away though I am trying to schedule some posts for next week.
Vacation usually means lots of reading and one of my number on priorities is figuring out which books to bring with me. I am bringing my Kindle but I also like to bring a small selection of physical books as well. It's Friday night as I read this and I am agonizing over what to bring. Do you guys do this, too? I am betting you do if you are a book lover like me.
In the end, I decided to bring the following physical books on vacation:
Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork - I borrowed this from Alethea a million years ago and I want to finish at least one of her books so I can return it.
Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt - Historical romance that I picked up from ALA. I have never read anything by Hoyt before but I've heard good things.
God Save the Queen by Kate Locke - Steampunk urban fantasy where the Queen is undead. Sounds awesome.
Dark Companion by Marta Costa - Also picked up at ALA. Marta is coming to my town in a couple of months for a signing and I figure I should try to read this beforehand.
I also have about a million NetGalley books that I want to get to since I joined NetGalley Knockdown. We'll see how much I actually get to read this week Are any of you going on vacation for the 4th? Do you have as much trouble as I do trying to figure out what books to bring? If anyone has any method they use to go about figuring out what books to bring on vacation, I would love to hear it. I usually just go with my gut and how much I can carry but I'd love to know how other people decide.
