Winter Vacation Reads

Next week, my family and I leave for Mexico. For seven days. With no television. (I know. I know. Dumb thing to complain about.) I don’t watch much television as it is, but not having the option to watch television is making me a bit nervous about not having enough reading material. I, of course, had to place a last minute Amazon order and went on a bit of a Kindle book binge.

Here’s what I’m bringing…

And in case that isn’t enough, here’s what I have loaded on my Kindle…

    I have been following your book recs all year and have discovered the best books! Particularly loved the Middlesteins and the Art of Fielding.
    I recently read History of a Pleasure Seeker and really enjoyed it.

    Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It comes out in March but I read an advanced review copy on my Kindle (via NetGalley) and it was amazing. If you like YA and YA romance, it’s awesome.

    It is set in the 80’s with big hair, cassettes, walk mans, comics, tons of music references and an amazingly cute couple that made my heart swoon so many times.

    My initial review is up on Goodreads if you’re interested.

    Great picks Corrin! I read The Chocolate Money this summer and loved it, it was twisted and weird and I couldn’t put it down.

    I’d also recommend Mike Ronny’s “Rusty Goes to Prom”. It’s a short, $.99 novel, so perfect for a vacation or long weekend, and a hilarious look at high school life through the school janitor’s eyes. You can find it at

    Can’t wait to hear how you like The Chocolate Money!
