Vacation Book Haul!

by - 5:35 PM

Hey guys! I'm currently knee-deep in AnimeIowa and having a blast, so today's post is quick. I did want to get something up, though, so I'll be sharing with you the books I bought while on my recent vacation!

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - currently reading. I'm around page 100, and it's really good so far! (Arundel Books, Seattle)

Inferno by Dan Brown - to read. I hadn't been planning to read this book, but I wanted to support an independent bookstore I went to that didn't have anything from my TBR. I really enjoyed The Da Vinci Code, so this seemed like a good follow-up! (Darvill Books, Eastsound)

As You Like It by Shakespeare - read. 5/5 STARS MAN I'M SUCH A SHAKESPEARE NERD AND THIS PLAY WAS SO. FREAKING. HILARIOUS. Rosalind is my new favorite Shakespearian heroine, too - sorry, Ophelia. (The Globe Bookstore, Seattle)

The Book of Merlyn by T.H. White - read. This hitherto unpublished epilogue to T.H. White's classic Arthurian saga, The Once and Future King, is a bit strange but pretty enjoyable all around. 4/5 stars. (Arundel Books, Seattle)


Let's chat! What are some books you've recently bought? Do you read a lot on vacation, or do you often find you're too busy? (It depends, for me.) Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles.

  1. It really depends for me as well, but most of the time I get a lot of reading done on vacation. Mostly because I have to take time out for myself, in order to survive the vacation :D

    I'm currently reading Daughter of the Burning City, which was this month's FairyLoot book, and it's really good! My pre-order for Everything All At Once also came in and I'm enjoying that too. ♥

    1. Haha, I know that feeling exactly! Ooh, I've been wondering about reading Daughter. Can't wait to see your thoughts!

  2. I think I have a copy of Inferno lying around my house somewhere... I've also come to appreciate Shakespeare's works more. Much Ado About Nothing is my favorite of them all (probably because witty banter and people setting up two others to fall in love with each other, while probably really badly looked upon in retrospect, is just hilarious).

    1. OH MY GOD YESSS MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Have you seen the web series based off it, Nothing Much to Do? It's so hilarious! MAAN is one of my favorites as well, second only to Julius Caesar.
