The Books I'm Packing on Vacation

We're headed to San Francisco for four days soon! I'm a bit unsure about how much reading I'll actually get to do. On the one hand, I'm sure I won't get to read on the plane, because Juliet is lap-sitting. On the other hand, I might get to read a LOT in the hotel room, because we're all sharing one room for the first time (we typically do Airbnb, I just got an unbeatable deal on a hotel room). Anyway, once the girls go to sleep, Noel and I are going to have to either watch tv on mute or read.

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty. I was obsessed with Big Little Lies, so when this one popped up in a Kindle sale, I snapped it up. I think it's fun that it's about triplets! My college roommate has triplets a few months younger than Eleanor, so I'm always interested in triplety things.

The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani. This was another sale book. I've never read any Trigiani books, but I always admired the covers when I used to stock them (when I worked at Bookmans).

That's Not English by Erin Moore. I love nerdy word and etymology books, so I'm super excited about this one. I got an ARC from the publisher a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't had a chance to get to it yet. It's the only print book I'm packing, since it's paperback and lightweight.

If You're Not the One by Jemma Forte. I have an e-galley of this one, which will come out in June. It's an It's-a-Wonderful-Life type romance, where a woman in a coma gets a glimpse of what life would be like if she'd married someone else. Looks like fun, and perfect for some light vacation reading.

I'm proud of myself for not overpacking this time! Amazing how having the Kindle has changed that... I don't feel the pressure to take ALL THE BOOKS just in case, since I know I can always log into the library website and download something else.

Do YOU take lots of books on vacation?
