Is it too soon for a Staycation?

July 29, 2014 | by

Today is my first day back in the office after a vacation in Vegas! Which isn’t so much a vacay as it is a
whirlwind of heat and pools and bright lights. So I think next up for me is a nice, relaxing staycation. As
fun as Vegas was, my ideal way to spend some time off involves a whole lot of reading! And my TBR pile is
looking quite large!

Here are a few books that I’d like to spend my staycation with:


Friendship by Emily Gould
Raincoast Books / Macmillan – Farrar, Straus & Giroux

Why I want to read it:This is a novel about two friends learning the difference
between getting older and growing up. I can relate.


Lost for words by Edward St. Aubyn
Raincoast / Macmillan – Farrar, Straus & Giroux

Why I want to read it: This man writes hilariously funny and dark satires
like nobody’s business. If you haven’t read The Patrick Melrose novels, you’re
missing out. 


The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien
Raincoast / Macmillan – Roaring Brook Press

Why I want to read it:  1 – She wrote The Birthmarked Trilogy. 2 – That COVER!
3 – It sounds a bit like a YA version of The Truman Show.
