Books I'm Taking on My Road Trip!

This week, I'm going on a road trip and I'm super excited for it!  Not only will there surely be a lot of beautiful scenery, there will be many hours in a car.  While this normally wouldn't necessarily be a good thing, in this case it is.  I'm not tasked with driving which means I get to spend that time reading!  I'm one of the few people I know who doesn't get carsick while reading (thank goodness).  And, since I'm chugging along toward my goal of reading 20 books this summer, this will be a perfect opportunity to make it closer to achieving that goal!  

So, in preparation for the trip, I've made a short list of the books I want to take with me!

1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
I'm still doing the Harry Potter read-a-thon with my friend and we're on to the fourth book!  I'm about a quarter of the way through and really enjoying it.  I love this year for Harry, Ron, and Hermione (although Harry and Ron so annoy me a bit).  

2. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I've heard so many wonderful things about this book and have admired its cover from afar for too long.  I finally caved and bought it the other day and I'm so excited to dive into it!  I'm already about 30 pages in and I'm hoping I can finish it on the drive!

3. Ruined by Amy Tintera
I actually randomly picked this one up at a used book sale without knowing anything about it but it sounds amazing!  I checked a couple of reviews my friends have written on it and they've all really enjoyed it so I'm excited to give it a shot!

4. Lucky in Love by Kasie West 
To lighten things us, I'm also bringing a nice contemporary!  I'm hoping it will be good, but I have heard some negative things about it.  

What do you think of the books I'm bringing?  I tried to pick a few different genres, just in case I get bored with one thing or another.  I'm really excited for this trip, and while there will be other things to do, I know I'm going to get a lot of reading done, which will be good.  Let me know what books you would bring if you were going on a road trip!



    High five for not getting carsick, my boyfriend kept warning me our last vacation. He was driving and I was reading, but no carsickness for me!

    Have a wonderful trip :)
