If you have a good memory (certainly better than mine, I had to check my archives), you’ll remember that last year I posted a TBR for my Honeymoon-Turned-Staycation-Because-Oh-Well. A year and a half later, my husband and I are finally going to our honeymoon!
I am taking two hardcovers and my e-reader, so that I am very flexible and just pick up whatever I’m in the mood for, and all three choices below are books I have been saving because I think they’ll be 5-star reads and for some reason I was waiting for the right time to pick them up. I guess now it’s as good as it gets!
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez, translation by Edith Grossman
I’ve had this book on my TBR for the longest time, and it makes no sense because I loved One Hundred Years of Solitude, and since my husband also has it on his TBR, we will take it to our trip and read it one after another. This is one of the two physical books I am taking with me.
Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney
I’ve seen someone describe this as romance but make it literary fiction and I thought SOLD. I recently read and loved Conversations with Friends, so I thought this would be a perfect addition. This is the second hardcover I’m taking and will probably be the book I start with.
The Last Words of Madeleine Anderson by Helen Kitson
Ok so I have a huge soft spot for books about writers – especially mysteries and thrillers. This is about a writer who published an incredible book and then never published another book. Her self esteem is kind of low and she is quite lonely, until the day she meets a man who is a huge fan of hers but maybe he’s not all he seems?? Sounds like a fun read!
If I am in the mood I might pick up a few more thrillers, and some I have in mind are:
- The Broken Girls by Simone St. James
- Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty
- My Heart Is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones
Really looking forward to picking up all of these books!
Also: I am always looking for more thriller recommendations (I go through so many every year, especially on vacation), so if you have any, leave a comment on this post or on this tweet:
I have a couple posts programmed for the next two weeks, so I will be less active in the blog than usual but still have content coming up. 🙂
