Books I Took to Cancún, Mexico!

This is a strange post to be writing while there's literal snow on the ground but I went to Cancún! The trip had been about five years in the making with my best friends from school and it was so fun. I saw one of the new seven wonders of the world, Mayan ruins, cenotes, and so many turtles! Plus, I packed up a bunch of books and even read a couple...

Pile of books on the beach

The Coffin Dance by Jeffery Deaver
I got about twenty pages into this before I left so I couldn't leave it behind, but I didn't read any more of it while I was away. I just wasn't in the mood for a good detective novel, but I do like to always have one with me.

The Devil You Know by Mike Carey
Ever since I didn't read this after failing the A-to-Z-readathon terribly, it's been on my mind as a series I might want to pick up sometime soon. I've been missing urban fantasy in my life! While I didn't end up reading it, one of my friends did and she liked it so that bodes well!

Night Shift by Charlaine Harris
This book has officially been to three countries with me; GreeceNorway, and now Mexico! Plus, I actually read it this time so it seems third times a charm! I am now officially caught up on all of Charlaine Harris's series- what the heck do I read now, eh?

Hello Again by Brenda Novak*
I started this while I was away, and have since finished it. Because nothing is better to read about on white sandy beaches in the sunshine then serial killers! This series is so good, I'm already waiting impatiently for the next instalment.

Oroonoko by Aphra Behn
Another one that I read! Or at least got most of the way through. By sheer bad luck or bad planning on my part, I actually had an essay due on Oroonoko three days after I got back from my trip. Super relaxing! So, while I had to bring this, it was an interesting enough read.

Candide, or Optimism by Voltaire
If I had finished my Oroonoko essay (I didn't, but just in case) the next book I have to read is Candide so I packed it. It's pretty little so it wasn't a huge deal though.

Empire and Dominion by Jennifer Ridyard and John Connolly*
Yeah, I'm the worst. These books are still unre-read/ unread despite travelling the globe with me this year. GreeceNorway, Mexico and I still haven't got through more than 50 pages. 2018 is going to be the year!

Coming Out Under Fire by Allan Bérubé
I've been meaning to read this since I got it for Christmas last year but it's a very tough and emotional read. Too much for this kind of holiday but hopefully I'll get back to it in the next couple of months.

Have you read any of these? What did you think of my picks?
