Vacation Books- What Am I Reading?

I will be heading to Ireland this summer and my iPad is ready to travel with me.  As most readers know, I am a paper books gal.  I love paper, the smell of a new book, and the feeling of holding a book in my hands.  However, I am a fast reader.  I can’t carry enough books to keep me happy when I fly, so my iPad is used as an e-reader whenever I travel.  It’s perfect.  I can log onto the wireless network anywhere I travel and play games on the iPad.  But I can also carry lots of books with me!

Here are some of the books I will be “carrying” when I travel to Ireland:

Sisterhood Everlasting: A Novel (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) by Ann Brashares- I was a huge fan of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books and I just found out about this adult companion to the novels.

The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School by Alexandra Robbins- I have read all of Robbins’ books and this topic is close to my heart.

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen- I don’t miss a Dessen book. I’m shocked that it’s been out for almost two months and I haven’t read it yet!

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: A Flavia de Luce Novel by Alan Bradley- Recommended by a friend, I am looking forward to trying this series.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins- Yes, I am behind. Yes, every blogger has recommended this one to me!

Juliet: A Novel by Anne Fortier- This has been on my list for a while and I look forward to reading it.


What are your vacation reading plans this summer?  Do you carry paper books with you or carry an e-reader?

  1. The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth was such an impressive read. Seriously loved that book.

    And Dessen’s most recent book is my all time fave of hers. You’ve got a great list.

  2. I’m really enjoying Libba Bray’s latest book, Beauty Queens. It would make a fun companion to Lord of the Flies.
    I wish I had an e-reader…I’m also a poor grad student so I wish I got to travel, too! haha!
    Happy trails!

  3. I am currently reading Bill Bryson’s Home and have Anne Cherian’s A Good Indian Wife waiting in the wings. I am a paper girl myself – and yes, I carry a canvas bag with us in the car so I have plenty of reads for the entire family when traveling. It probably sounds crazy, but when I have the actual book in my hands, I feel like “they” are with me, but on e-reader it feels more like I am getting a message – how weird am l? I have grouped books together from the library and would love for you to come check it out on my blog – thank you! xoxo michele

  4. I enjoyed the Dessen and I’m so excited you’re going to read Anna and the French Kiss, it was one of my favorites from last year. I hope you enjoy them all!
