I’m leaving for Croatia on Saturday. I’m so excited for my first vacation in many years. I have struggled with an illness called ME/CFS for the last 5 years, and been very ill. The last year and a half I have been slowly getting better. I’m far from “normal”, but it is a huge step from how it used to be. This vacation is going to be a big milestone in my recovery, and I’m really looking forward to the trip. I’m also very anxious, but I will not let that stop me.
Ok so over to this post, I want to tell you about the books I’m taking with me to Croatia. I narrowed it down to 3 books. I don’t think I will be reading more than 3 books, and if I do I have my Kindle and audiobooks. My criteria was: not too long, easy to read, paperback and that I already owns it. A lot of the books I owned didn’t make my criteria, but I found some that did.
The Titan’s Curse & The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan
Book 3 and 4 in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
It’s been a while since I read book 1 and 2, it was some time last year. I have been wanting to pick the series up again, and finish it this year. Since it is a middle grade series, it’s fast paced and easy to read. It’s perfect to read by the pool because I don’t have to focus on the book too much while reading. The books also fits all my criteria.
The Girls by Emma Cline
This book sounds really interesting, so I thought it would be fun to take with me on the vacation. I hope it is an easy read and not too slow. The book is only 355 pages, so it fits all my criteria.
That was all of the physical books I’m taking with me to Croatia. I might have to take with me the book I’m currently reading, if I don’t finish it before I leave. The one extra book will be Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, I hope to finish it before though. I’m also taking with me some audiobooks that I have downloaded on my phone.
I have downloaded:
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) by J.K. Rowling
2. Kaninjegeren (Joona Linna, #6) by Lars Kepler (The Rabbit Hunter)
3. Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
I’m not going to list books from my Kindle.
What do you think of my TBR? Which books would you take with you on a vacation?
