Books for vacation

Library

I could spend hours scanning through books at the library, especially when it gets me out of sitting at Karli’s cramped dance studio. Really I was on a mission to find a couple of paperback books for vacation. (OMG, I can’t believe it’s almost here already, so excited!) I don’t want to take my iPad out to the pool and have to worry about someone snagging it while I am visiting the swim up bar repeatedly. I have to be honest, laying at the pool or on the beach reading a book is like one of the top things I am looking forward to. I care more about that then visiting the “rocks” as I like to call the various sites to see in Cancun.

I haven’t purchased any real books in awhile so I thought I would wander through the aisles trying to find some of the books on my “To Read” list on Goodreads. It was so awesome, I could pick up a book and scan the ISBN number on the back with my phone and the reviews/ratings from Goodreads would pop up. Unfortunately I was coming up on empty even though I did find several of the books I’ve been wanting to read, but they were all huge heavy hardbacks. I found a few books by Kristin Hannah and Erin Hilderbrand. I even found a few by an author I’ve been meaning to check out – Lisa Gardner. But like I said, all hardbacks. So finally I googled (don’t laugh) “Books like Twilight or Hunger Games” because let’s be real, I haven’t loved any series of books as much as I’ve loved those books. Not to mention I will be seeing Breaking Dawn Part 2 prior to vacation and would love to follow that up with something mushy love story that involves some sort of creature or event that would never happen in real life.

I ended up only finding one paperback- the first book of the series Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Upon reading the description it sounds pretty similar to Twilight, but I’m okay with that. I like writers who are trying to one up Twilight. How sweet of them to put out the effort to try and write a book better than the best Trilogy written EVER!!

Hush, Hush

The library had two of the other books in the series, but they were hardcover as well. I’m thinking I’ll just make a trip to Target and pick up a couple of paperbacks. I’ve been meaning to try out the first books of a couple of other young adult series that I keep hearing about. One is Divergent by Veronica Roth and the other is Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Has anyone read any of these series before I go buy them? Feedback please!
