Spring Break Reads - 3/13/2015

My spring break started yesterday when my last class ended. I'm headed to Florida for a quiet week visiting my grandparents. Eating an early bird dinner at 4pm just means extra reading time when I get home.  There won't be any posts until I'm back, but before I leave I thought I'd share the books I've packed to read over spring break. How many will I actually get through? And how many additional books will I pick up in the many excellent used book stores in the area? I'll let you know when I'm back March 24!

"Get in Trouble" by Kelly Link - I picked this up at the charming Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers in Brooklyn with a friend last weekend, and can't wait to dive into it.

"Mort(e)" by Robert Repino - This quirky novel was recommended on Books on the Nightstand, so even though it's due back to the library two days before I get back from Florida, I decided it's worth the 50 cents to finish it - apologies to anyone else in NYC with a hold on this!

"The Paying Guests" by Sarah Waters - I fully expect to finish this audio book before my plane takes off on Monday. Even though it's long, I've been listening every free moment I have.

 "Ruby" by Cynthia Bond - Oprah has only steered me wrong once with her book selections, so I'm happy this audiobook hold came through before spring break started.

 "The Buried Giant" by Kazuo Isiguro - I loved "Never Let Me Go," so I'm excited to see what Isiguro does in the fantasy genre. The LeGuin/Isiguro spat has only made me more interested.

"The Secret History" by Donna Tartt - I love "The Goldfinch," so I've been saving this one for a week when I knew I'd have uninterrupted reading time.

"2 A.M. at The Cat's Pajamas" by Marie-Helene Berlino - This one's been on my TBR for a while, so I was pleased it was available for download when I was browsing Overdrive for another audiobook to bring with me.
