My Holiday TBR!

On Sunday I fly to Greece for my first holiday in four years. I’m taking my little sister to a small island called Thassos that’s basically just beaches and pine forest. It’s going to be glorious.

My plans for the week include swimming, reading, reading some more and swimming until I can’t move my legs and then some more reading, or floating around the pool in a rubber ring with a cocktail in my hand.

A week holiday with nothing to do and no work to worry about leads me to a problem that I have been thinking about since I paid for that holiday: how many books do I take? Paper or Kindle? WHICH ONES?! But, I have made my decision. I think.



Ambitious? Possibly. I do think I have a nice mixture here, though: YA and adult; long and short; contemporary, thriller, paranormal, crime sci-fi and fantasy. I can’t wait to get stuck into these beauties.

Have you read any of these? Which should I start with? What are you/did you taking/take away with you this summer?



  1. Great selection! I'm taking The Lemon Grove and The Cuckoo's Calling on my hols too :) Hope you have a wonderful time x

  2. Ooh, read Half-blood first, I want to know what you think! Have a great time, no matter how much you read - actually I think it would be perfectly acceptable if you just spend the entire week at the beach with cocktails :)

  3. Looks like you have a great selection! Maybe a little ambitious but it's always good to have choice! Love to know what you think of ... well, all of them!
    I haven't read any but am dying to read Heir of Fire and bought Cuckoo's Calling last month! And Afterworlds is sitting on my TBR somewhere too... :D
    And on another note, I think you have a wonderful holiday Sophie and take some time to de-stress as I know life hasn't been easy. Have I mentioned lately how awesome and proud I am of you :)
    All the love and hugs!

  4. I hope you have a fantastic time Sophie! I'm really looking forward to reading both Half-Blood and Heir of Fire so I think you should read those first LOL. You have a great selection though so I hope you enjoy them all.

    Make sure you have one of the paper books in your hand luggage though because last time I flew they made us turn our kindles off for take off and landing!

  5. Yay, I hope you have an amazing relaxing time! Heir of Fire seems like a fabulous choice. I also think you should read Belzhar so you can tell me if its good :P Have fun!


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
