holiday reading: april 2017

When it comes to packing books for my holidays, I endure the biggest struggles when it comes to books. How many books am I likely to read? Which ones will be fitting my holiday mood the best? Are these really enough or do I need to bring half of my shelves? Most of the time I pack 3 to 4 books and most of the times these aren’t enough (depending on which kind of holiday I’m going).

For April I’ll be on a more or less relaxing one over the week before easter. The actual plan was going skiing – so I only have time to read in the evening, when coming back to the house I’ll be staying. But since the weather changed its plans and there is nearly no snow on which I could be skiing, I also have to over think my plans concerning the books. I will now have a whole week to read without interruptions.

So I decided that 3 to 4 books might simply be not enough. And since I put myself on a book buying ban last month I won’t be able to buy replenishment. So my motto will be better too much than too little. So I’m going to take 5 books with me, two of them relatively big.

  • Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas
  • A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) (re-read) by Sarah J. Maas
  • It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
  • Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
  • The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
  • The two books of Sarah J. Maas are all in preparation of the oncoming release of ACOWAR on May 2nd. I want to finish the Throne of Glass series before re-reading ACOMAF in preparation. I know that I might as well throw myself off a cliff since the pain will be the same. But I also decided to bring a contemporary with me because I rarely read them but heard so many good things about Colleen Hoovers books. Furthermore I tend to read thrillers only while on holidays but I can’t even explain why. And with Salt to the Sea I will try to read a historical fiction book – which also happens rarely. But this sounds like a fantastic read and I really hope that I’ll enjoy it.

    I think that I’ll be pretty happy with my choices even if I still fear that this couldn’t be enough. You might be laughing now, but I always fear that I have too little books with me. All the time. But I will see how my plan will work out.

    Have you read any of these books? How did you like them? And do you have any recommendations for similar books? How many books do you take on holidays? feel free to talk to me about this!
