As always, this weekly book blog meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I thought this week’s TTT might be fun, despite the fact that I won’t be going to the beach for another month and a half. I also feel the need to throw out a disclaimer here: there’s a GREAT chance that none of these books will make their way to the beach with me. You guys know how much of a mood reader I am, and books I think I’ll take with me now are not guaranteed to still be on my radar come July. Still, it’s been interesting to come up with a list. I am not the typical bring-light-and-airy-books-to-the-beach kind of person, so don’t go looking for those around here! Some of these were chosen for their size though, because I’d love to fly through a few books during my week of lounging.
Sorry I’m missing a photo this week, things got messed up with my posts!
The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson. I have heard SO MANY great things about Brandon Sanderson, but *cringe* I’ve NEVER READ ANYTHING BY HIM!! Ack, I know, how can I possibly love the sci-fi/fantasy genres and never had read Sanderson? This book will change that!
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I keep eyeing up this book and then choosing something else. It’s YA, which means it’ll be easier reading, and I look forward to the mystery of it.
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Somehow I managed to miss this often required reading in school. It’s a short book, but one of the few classics I actually want to read.
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. As soon as I dig myself out of the many-books-going-at-the-same-time hole that I’m currently in, I AM reading Gone Girl. Sharp Objects is smaller but still promises to be a great thriller.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I recently picked up the His Dark Materials trilogy at the library sale, and I’d love to add that series to my 2014 Series Challenge completion list.
Chocolat by Joanne Harris. I’d like to watch the movie (hello Johnny Depp!), and this is a short one that’s been lingering on my shelves since last summer.
A Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne. Another short classic that I’ve never read (but have seen the movie many times!)
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Another YA I’ve been itching to pick up but haven’t yet.
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I really need to get these shorter classics off my plate!
Message In a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks. It IS a beach novel after all… I had to throw at least one in there!
What books might make it into your beach (and/or vacation) bag?
