Chatterbox: Merry Christmas & Holiday Reads

Christmas is here and it’s a time for celebration, rest and food! I can’t believe how fast the year has gone and I’m really looking forward to some rest and relaxation.

It’s been a wonderful year getting to know so many new bloggers, being inspired by all of your love and support for each other and passion for books, and having so many fun discussions on Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram and Google+! It makes me so happy that I get to blog amongst such a wonderful, respectful and passionate bookish community, and you guys are all amazing.

Usually I celebrate Christmas with a trip away, after a big year! This year, I’ll be off to a road trip after spending time with the family. We’re heading to a quiet, seaside town and I’m really looking forward to rest and relaxation at the beach. It’s been a big year and there’s no better way to spend it.

After a busy year of constantly reviewing books, I’ve decided to use this time off to read for leisure! Here’s the books I’m taking with me:

The One Everyone’s Been Raving About 

  • The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – Allie, Jess, Alise and everyone else’s book pushing and raving has finally convinced me to pick this up!

Post Apocalyptic Zombie Read

  • Deadline and Blackout by Mira Grant – I’m embarrassed I haven’t read these after promising to do a buddy read last year and absolutely LOVING Feed. In fact, I’d call FEED one of my favourite books of all time.

A Quirky Contemporary Romance

The Hot and Emotional New Adult 

The Series I Need to Catch Up On

I don’t know how I’d go with reading them all, but I’ll definitely give it a good go. It’s going to be a 6.5 hour drive there and back, which gives me plenty of reading time! There’ll be a few scheduled posts over the next few days to keep you entertained, but I shall be back with you all before the new year.

Merry Christmas everyone!
