Vacation Reading List/Suggestions!

Its vacation time! I am off to my cottage on beautiful Lake Simcoe in Ontario where I am excited to spend time with family and of course read a few good books. My reading list is a little short this year but with a three month old baby to love and look after my reading time is limited.

Books that take place in a dystopian society have captured my attention over the last few years, with a few of my favorites being The Hunger Games series and The Forest of Hands and Teeth.  The novel, Divergent by Veronica Roth, has recently come to my attention so that is the first novel on my vacation reading list.

Divergent (Divergent Trilogy)

Next on my reading list is a novel a little outside my usual scope of interest, The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.  My interest in reading this novel is solely based on the fact that most members of my family have read it! 
The Forgotten Garden: A Novel 
While I am unsure what to expect of this next novel, after reading Night by Elie Wiesel a few years ago, The Boy In The Striped Pijamas by John Boyne has long been on my "to read" list. (Click here for my review of the novel within my post titled "Books With Impact")

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas 

And if three books in ten days (oh my how my ability to read copious amounts of books in short periods of time has changed) is not enough I have the following books waiting in the sidelines! I have chosen so many in part because two are review copies that I need to complete and three are books that have been siting on my shelf begging for me to start reading ASAP. I am one of those people that can't just read any book it has to be a book that I the mood for. Many times I have put a book down due to disinterest after just a few chapters to only gobble up in hours a month later.

As mentioned in a previous post I have been out of the blogosphere for a little while now and I have struggled to find books that have been able to capture my attention. Suggestions for new novels or series that have been published in the last year would be welcome! If you are a blogger yourself feel free to leave a link to your review of such a novel and I would be excited to read it!
