Hawaii: Books

My Bookcase - pre-cleaning
Okay - so with much distraction for the last few days (yes, that's Sammi with the flu but don't worry we think she's on the mend), it's time to start thinking about which books I'm going to bring to Hawaii.

So far I have pulled out:

  • New Moon (2nd book in the twilight series)
  • Nineteen Minutes (should have read this for book club while I was sick)
  • Suite Francaise (I'm on the fence about this one. I read the first half a while ago but never finished it. I just don't know if I want to take up precious space with 1/2 a book.
  • The Seventh Sacrament (another by David Hewson) - a friend loaned me these and I enjoyed the first I read, Sacred Cut
  • End Games (by Michael Dibdin - the last of the Aurelio Zen series)
  • The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd (another missed book club book)
  • The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency (yet another missed book club book).

Ooh, just dug out two more paperbacks waiting to be read

Okay, I think I'm good!

So which one or two do you think I should take on the plane? Remember it's an 10+ hour flight.

I vote for No 1 Ladies Detective Agency and Nineteen Minutes. I really enjoyed them both.

I'd probably take the Elizabeth George on the plane. Her mysteries are long and most of them are enthralling enough that they make the time fly by. As a back-up, maybe take the Twilight one?


I enjoyed Suite Francaise, but it if didn't grab you before, a vacation might not be the time to start again!

Maybe another Hewson? I like his stuff. And I loved all of the Aurelio Zen novels. But I couldn't stand the Secret Life of Bees.


Nineteen Minutes is GRIPPING!

"The Virgin of Small Plains" kept me engrossed on a flight from somewhere to somewhere else. ;) Good story and characters, intense suspense.

p.s. "New Moon" would probably be good for traveling. It's a long book!
