Holiday Reading List!

My school holidays officially start as of today, which means that I now have three weeks to do whatever the hell I want! Goodbye textbooks; hello social life.

Lol. "Social life." As if.

Holidays actually means that I have three weeks to stay holed up in my bedroom, reading, writing, and blogging until I have no other option but to go downstairs to eat and potentially socialise with my family and friends for a few precious moments, before starting the process of reading, writing and blogging all over again.

But anyway, I thought I'd blog about the books I'm planning on reading and reviewing this holiday, partially because I have nothing else to do, and partially because I thought you guys might
t maybe be a little interested.

Bright Young Things by Anna Godberson

I'm so excited to read this book. Not only is it by the same author who wrote The Luxe series (basically the only thing I read non-stop in Grade 6), but it's set in 1929. And you know... I'm just obsessed with flappers and speak-easies (if you're a flapper fanatic, too, read my review on Vixen by Jillian Larkin).

Chocolat by Joanne Harris

I actually started reading this in the school library for lack of things to do during
exams, and I fell in love with the story. Plus it's about chocolate. What more could a girl want?

Cry, the Beloved Country by Alex Paton

I thought I should try this novel out, seeing as I have so much time to read, but am not really sure what to expect. Here's to hoping it goes well...

Petite Anglaise by Catherine Sanderson

My mom's friend actually gave this to her for me to read. It's written by a blogger, about a blogger who moves to Paris. It's described as "a true story of how a mum found love and romance in Paris by becoming the girl she'd always wanted to be."

The Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

She wrote the Lux series (the alien one, not the Anna Godberson series), and created Daemon Black. Need I say any more? (P.S. Thank you to Michele for recommending the series.)

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
This book looks so good. I love how it's about werewolves for a change instead of vampires. (P.S. Thank you to Maria for recommending Shiver.)

And yes, I am STILL trying to get through A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. Don't judge me. I had to put it down for the sake of my education (studying for exams is much easier when you hide your favourite books) and now I just can't get into it again. So sorry, but I have to start it all over again. I can't even remember half of what happened, and I was at least halfway through the book when I put it down...

Thanks for reading! Leave comments below on what else you'd like me to read or review this holiday. As I said, I have a lot of time... ;)
