In just over a week I will be in Lanzarote, soaking up the sunshine and reading lots of books. I cannot wait to go back on holiday. It has been 3 years since I last went to Lanzarote and the excitement is unreal. We are there for 2 weeks, so I will be taking more books than last time! I wanted to share what my TBR is for the holiday. I’ll be splitting it into two parts because there are quite a few books on my TBR this time.
Here is part one of my holiday TBR for Lanzarote!
Her Dark Wings by Melinda Salisbury
The great love of Corey’s life has always been her best friend, Bree: closer than sisters, their bond is unbreakable.
Or so Corey believes, until Bree betrays her, and Corey’s world is shattered.
Corey finds herself heartbroken, furious and alone…
Only to discover that the Underworld – and Hades, Lord of the Dead – is closer than she thinks…
I was lucky enough to be sent a proof of this book a little while ago. I did want to read it right away but I thought it would be the perfect book to read whilst I was on holiday. So, I saved it exactly for that. I think that this book will allow me to completely escape to another world and I know that Melinda Salisbury’s writing will be incredible.
Book Lovers by Emily Henry
Nora is a cut-throat literary agent at the top of her game. Her whole life is books.
Charlie is an editor with a gift for creating bestsellers. And he’s Nora’s work nemesis.
Nora has been through enough break-ups to know she’s the woman men date before they find their happy-ever-after. That’s why Nora’s sister has persuaded her to swap her desk in the city for a month’s holiday in Sunshine Falls, North Carolina. It’s a small town straight out of a romance novel, but instead of meeting sexy lumberjacks, handsome doctors or cute bartenders, Nora keeps bumping into…Charlie.
I’ve been so excited to read this book for such a long time. I have been saving it for whilst I’m on holiday though because I think it would be perfect to read by the pool. I cannot wait to get hooked into this story and not want to put it down. Emily Henry’s books are amazing and I am so excited to finally read this one.
Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year’s Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn’t expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they’ve eloped.
Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met—and who doesn’t even know Elsie exists.
I have saved this Taylor Jenkins Reid book specifically to read whilst I’m on holiday. With her new book coming out in a couple of months I though it would be the perfect book to read to make me even more anticipated for Carrie Soto is Back. I know I am guaranteed to love a book by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I definitely want to read amazing books whilst on holiday. So, I know I can rely on this.
Last Tang Standing by Lauren Ho
At thirty-three, Andrea Tang is living the dream: She has a successful career as a lawyer, a posh condo, and a clutch of fun-loving friends who are always in the know about Singapore’s hottest clubs. All she has to do is make law partner, and her life will be perfect. And if she’s about to become the lone unmarried member of her generation in the Tang clan–a disappointment her meddling Chinese-Malaysian family won’t let her forget–well, she doesn’t need a man to complete her.
Yet when a chance encounter with charming, wealthy entrepreneur Eric Deng offers her a glimpse of an exciting, limitless future, Andrea decides to give Mr. Right-for-her-family a chance. Too bad Suresh Aditparan, her office rival and the last man her family would approve of, keeps throwing a wrench in her plans. Now Andrea can’t help but wonder: In the endless tug-of-war between pleasing others and pleasing herself, is there room for everyone to win?
I saw this one on a list for perfect books to read in the summer. So, of course I immediately added it to my holiday TBR. I bought this quite a while ago now but for some reason haven’t actually picked it up. So, I am looking forward to giving this one a read whilst I’m on holiday.
Lonely Castle in the Mirror by Mizuki Tsujimura
Seven students are avoiding going to school, hiding in their darkened bedrooms, unable to face their family and friends, until the moment they discover a portal into another world that offers temporary escape from their stressful lives. Passing through a glowing mirror, they gather in a magnifcent castle which becomes their playground and refuge during school hours. The students are tasked with locating a key, hidden somewhere in the castle, that will allow whoever finds it to be granted one wish. At this moment, the castle will vanish, along with all memories they may have of their adventure. If they fail to leave the castle by 5 pm every afternoon, they will be eaten by the keeper of the castle, an easily provoked and shrill creature named the Wolf Queen.
This is a book I picked up on a whim a few months back and has sat on my shelves ever since. So, I am going to be taking this one with me on the plane and reading it on the journey there. I think it would be a good book to read to keep my attention whilst on the plane. I struggle on plane journeys and need a book that will completely take my mind off flying and I think this one is perfect for that.
The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson
Last summer, Alice Ogilve’s basketball-star boyfriend Steve dumped her. Then she disappeared for five days. Where she went and what happened to her is the biggest mystery in Castle Cove, because she’s not talking. Or it was, at least. But now, another one of Steve’s girlfriends has vanished: Brooke Donovan, Alice’s ex–best friend. And it doesn’t look like Brooke will be coming back. . .
Enter Iris Adams, Alice’s tutor. Iris has her own reasons for wanting to disappear, though unlike Alice, she doesn’t have the money or the means. That could be changed by the hefty reward Brooke’s grandmother is offering to anyone who can share information about her granddaughter’s whereabouts. The police are convinced Steve is the culprit, but Alice isn’t so sure, and with Iris on her side, she just might be able to prove her theory.
In order to get the reward and prove Steve’s innocence, they need to figure out who killed Brooke Donovan. And luckily Alice has exactly what they need—the complete works of Agatha Christie. If there’s anyone that can teach the girls how to solve a mystery it’s the master herself. But the town of Castle Cove holds many secrets, and Alice and Iris have no idea how much danger they’re about to walk into.
I enjoy both of these authors work so as soon as I heard they were releasing a book together I was excited. I love reading a good mystery book whilst on holiday so I think this one will be absolutely perfect. I cannot wait to read this and see where the twists and turns take me!
There you have it, part one of what is on my TBR for my holiday to Lanzarote this year. I’ll be sharing part two very soon, so keep your eye out for that. Are you going on holiday this year and where? Let me know in the comments below!
