So I am going to Greece for a week and by the time you read this I will have just landed! Yes that’s right don’t worry Blogtober is still happening and I will continue to provide you with bookish goodness each day while I’m away… it just might have been pre-planned goodness.
As my holiday is entirely for the purpose of relaxing and enjoying the sun I will be doing a heck of a lot of reading! (I hope) So I thought I would share with you my holiday to be read pile since I didn’t include them in my TBR!
Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
This is one of a few books that were sent across to me by Penguin and was recommended to me specifically for my holiday so I thought it would be rude not to! From what the blurb tells me it is a wartime story of crossing oceans, leaving loved ones and finding love. Perfect for an overnight flight!
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
Again this book was recommended to me for my holiday by Penguin and appears to be a story of rekindling an old flame on the coast of Italy that moves to the Edinburgh Fringe. The story of an Italian Inn-keeper and English Actress, Beautiful Ruins is set to be a heartbreaking and addictive read!
The Keeper By David Baldacci
Another review title, this book is the second in the Vega Jane series. Only problem is I’ve not read the first one. However, I’ve been informed that you can read them as stand alones so I will see if this holds true.
Katherine Carlyle By Rupert Thomson
A Netgalley selection, this book is about a girl born through IVF and her life at the age of nineteen after having lost her mother to cancer. I’m not really sure what I’ll make of this one but it sounds like it’s going to be rather sad.
Four books in one week is probably far too ambitious but I’m going to attempt it and at least get two one for each plane journey!
