Jasmine Rose - I’ve been dying to read Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff for soooooo long. I can’t wait to see what you think about it!
As for my book habits when it comes to vacation…well, I tend to sacrifice clothing space for book space. Plus, I’m an overpacker, so I’ll usually bring about 5 books for a three day trip. And no, I’m not an especially fast reader 😛

VeganYANerds - Well despite the rain you looked really happy and summery, love your green outdoor furniture too! I think I saw a squirrel run along the fence in the background, I got all excited and distracted, ha! Also, I love pizza too!

You are taking some great books on your cruise, also, what’s a Disney cruise? Is it organised by Disney, I’ve never heard of it before!

I just got In Honor so we might be reading it at the same time and I love Jennifer Echols’ books so I hope you enjoy Endless Summer.

Liz - Great picks, you definitely have to read Second Chance Summer and In Honor, they were both great. I’m reading Endless Summer right now, and really looking forward to reading Unbreak My Heart, hopefully next.

Have an awesome time on your trip!

Ginger @ GReads! - I am so ridiculously excited for you to read Endless Summer. It’s such a great book & perfect for your vacation! I am currently reading Unbreak My Heart right now (only a few chapters in, but loving it so far). Thanks for all the shout outs!

Leoni - All those books look perfect for a holiday! 🙂 On holiday I will be taking my kindle and reading the books I have on there as well as maybe buying one in the airport before I go. Thanks for sharing your books to read. 🙂

elena - Hehe “I love pizza.” I’m kind of craving it now after seeing that cover! It does seem like a super cute book. I’ve heard a lot of good things about In Honor but still haven’t read it. Unbreak My Heart does sound perfect for your trip! When I was younger, I used to bring like a suitcase full of books but these days, I only bring one or two since I don’t really read on trips. I hope you have lots of fun on yours!!
