Fall Vacation Book Stack 2009

I am officially on holiday, and since one of the conditions of my holiday is limited internet time, I'm going to try to schedule a review to come up later in the week and see if it works. I've heard Blogger can be a little temperamental that way.

In lieu of Teaser Tuesday today, I'm posting a list of the books I'm planning to read. We're not going to be on vacation for a full week, so there are significantly more books than the one/day limit I should by rights set myself -- especially since some of them are likely too long to finish in a day -- but I need variety, you know? So. Without further ado:

  1. The Curse of the Tahiera by Wendy Gillissen (I'm cheating - I'm actually almost done this one already)
  2. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld (funny how this one jumped to the head of the queue)
  3. Libyrinth by Pearl North
  4. First Comes Marriage by Mary Balogh
  5. Ranma 1/2 (Volumes 16 and 17) by Rumiko Takahashi
  6. The Singing by Alison Croggon
  7. A Drowned Maiden's Hair by Laura Amy Schlitz
  8. A 21st Century Courtesan by Eden Bradley
  9. A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
  10. Riddle-Master by Patricia A. McKillip
  11. Sunshine by Robin McKinley

That might be it but I'm not making any promises. Sometimes there are things like used book stores that have a way of sneaking up on you. Have a great week, everyone!

What a wonderful list!! I'm wondering how you've already gotten your hands on a copy of Leviathan, though... :) Happy reading, and have a lovely vacation! (you will LOVE Sunshine. at least, I hope you will.)

Oooh, Leviathan! Enjoy!

celi.a - I got my hands on Leviathan thanks to my awesome local bookstore and Mandy. As for Sunshine, I know I'll enjoy it -- it's my standard vacation read, in case I can't seem to get into anything else. It's been a while since I've re-read it though, so I'm extra looking forward to it this time.

Nymeth - Thank you, I will! And I'm sure to let everyone know how much.

My copy of The Naming came in on Friday, paperback, and it is so beautiful. The world stopped around me and I stared and ogled. It is such a big book, and a trilogy! but I want to get to it before Xmas.

Mandy - it goes so fast! No worries about the length, seriously. And... I feel I should warn you... it's 4 books. They're all that long, too.

The second one isn't quite as good, but the third is fantastic. I still haven't made it to The Singing and I'm pretty sure I'm subconsciouly stalling.
