It’s been way too long since my last update, but I haven’t had time to write posts lately. Between the process of getting a new job and preparations for my trip to Europe, I honestly haven’t had time to do much of anything. But I didn’t want to leave my blog inactive for half a month while I travel, so I’ve been drafting some last minute posts to occupy that time. I’m also planning on getting some reading done on the long plane rides, so I figured I’d do a TBR for my time in Ireland and London.
So here are the books I’m bringing with me:
1. The Sea of Monsters and The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan
I’ve just started the Percy Jackson series, and I’m absolutely loving the first book. I adore Riordan’s comical writing style, and the concept of demigods being scattered throughout the planet Earth is an amazing one. I’m mad at myself for not picking these up sooner, but I’m going to binge read my box set – starting with books two and three while I’m away!
2. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
This is one of the books I promised myself I’d get to this summer, but summer’s almost over. Obvious solution: Read it on the plane. I can probably bang this out in a few hours, especially if it’s as good as everyone says it is.
3. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda has been sitting on my Kindle forever, mostly due to the fact that I rarely ever use my Kindle. I’m a physical books kind of person. But carrying around a bunch of heavy books while traveling isn’t convenient, so I guess I’ll be able to tackle the Kindle books I haven’t gotten around to.
4. Asking for It by Louise O’Neill
This is another book awaiting attention on my Kindle. If I actually get through the other books I’m planning on reading, this is my back up. I’ve heard mixed things, but the topic of rape culture interests me, so I figured I’d read it and see what I think.
That’s it! I probably won’t get to all of these during my trip, but at least I’ll have options. If you’ve read any of these books, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them. Makes my decision making process easier!
