Which Books Did I Take on Vacation?

So I know you've been dying with curiosity about which books I finally ended up taking with me on vacation. Well, here they are.

Year of the Griffin by Diana Wynne Jones (reread)
A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters
The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl (reread)
A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper
The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter (ARC)

I know! I chose three books that weren't even on my original list, two of which are rereads (and one of those has a string of violent murders). What can I say? I'm a strange reader. I just wasn't feeling great about my list and so I started over and looked through my books again and chose ones I was really excited about reading. I'm not the only one who does that, right?

So which of these did I get to during my two six hour plane flights and ten days in Hawaii? You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out because I'm flying home today! (And yes, I'll post pictures of the trip too.)

Hopefully tanned and full of good stories,


  1. Hope you had a wonderful time! You made very good book choices at least, and I hope you saw a dolphin. Dolphins are brilliant.

  2. Oh wow … I can't wait to hear more about your vacation. We've not been to Hawaii yet but are just dying to go. It is the plane rides that keep us from attempting it yet.

  3. Jenny - I had a fantastic and restful time although I didn't see any dolphins. I did see some sea turtles though which was amazing, especially since one swam right by us!

    Jenners - I am still recovering but will hopefully be able to write up a post with pictures tomorrow. And Hawaii is totally a better destination for us West Coasters. You guys get the Bahamas and the Virgin Islands. ;)

  4. An interesting list.
    I look forward to the piccies!
