Normally on Monday I discuss the covers of books I'm reading. But I'm about to go on vacation. So how about what I'm going to pack. Last week, I was conflicted about what to take. But I have finally come to a decision.
Only Mine by Susan Mallery, The Secret Lives of the Four Wives by Lola Shoneyin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling, The Beekeeper's Lament by Hannah Nordhaus, Before I go to Sleep by S.J. Watson, Journey Across the Four Seas by Veronica Li, Sugar in my Bowl by Erica Jong and A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. Like clothes, when I go on vacation I like to have more than I need.
What I expect to finish: Only Mine, The Secret Lives of the Four Wives, Journey Across the Four Seas, and A Stolen Life. If at all possible I want to finish Journey Across the Four Seas before I get on the plane because I'm scheduled to post a review on Friday. If I don't, well you know what I'll be reading during the flight.
A Stolen Life wasn't on my original list, but I saw her interview with Diane Sawyer. I thought I have to read this book NOW!! I was just awestruck how a person could be so articulate and strong after what she went through. When the time comes, I'm not sure I could review it the same way I would another book. She didn't write the book for entertainment. I'm more likely to just give my thoughts on the book.
Hopefully I made some good choices!! How do you guys pick what to take on vacation?
