My Vacation Reading Options

Noel, Eleanor and I are on our way home from Show Low, Arizona, after enjoying some lovely, relaxing days in the cooler 70s! I queued this up ahead of time, because I don't like telling the internet that we're on vacation till we're actually back.

Since there isn't any tv or internet where we stayed, I requested a ton of books at the library for all of us, packed some puzzles and board games, and bought Eleanor a new Color Wonder book and markers.

There's no way I could have possibly read all of these books, but I brought up spares in case I didn't like some of them. My selections fall into three basic categories:

These Need Reviewed, But They're Nice Light Reading

Bread and Wine and a surprise visor from Noel arrived in my mailbox on the same day!

I've Been Meaning to Read These

I Love Young Adult Lit

  • The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg. I heard Elizabeth at the TFOB this year, and she was so funny in real life that I can't wait to read one of her books.
  • Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien. At some point I added this to my "to-read" shelf on Goodreads, so I just randomly requested it from the library. It gets pretty good reviews, hoping it lives up to the hype! Of course, it's book 1 in a trilogy.
  • Pure by Julianna Baggott. This one is ditto Birthmarked, although the reviews aren't quite as good.
Once I've unpacked everything and done our laundry, I'll fill you in on what I actually got around to reading!
