Today is currently Sunday, August 16th and I’m writing this post from my aunt’s kitchen table. I’ve now been on vacation for 3 days, so I have some updates to my vacation reading list.
In my last post, I mentioned I had requested Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge from the library, but it didn’t come in time. I also said I needed to read Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge, which I had purchased at a local book store a couple of weeks ago. I actually read that before I even left on vacation (maybe even the day after I wrote that post), so obviously I didn’t bring it.
While I managed to eliminate those two, I still managed to bring half a library with me. My mother was dismayed not only that I brought so many books, but also that I dared bring library books. I like to live on the edge.
- Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
- The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes
- Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
- Local Girls by Caroline Zancan
- The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
During my flights on Friday and during the day on Saturday, I powered through Crown of Midnight and managed to finish it last night. Before I went to bed, I started The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly. I’m only on page 44, but I’m enjoying it so far.
My friends arrive to Costa Rica tomorrow morning, which is very exciting but also very much a threat to my reading productivity. It would be a miracle if I made it through all seven of my books, but I’m hoping to at least read a good three or four. I’m sure my most productive moments will be on my flights, or early in the morning before every one else wakes up. Thanks to the time difference and the fact that I’m an early riser, I’ve been waking up around 6am every morning.
In any case, one book down!
