NEW YORK READS: BOOKS I’LL BE TAKING ON HOLIDAY

Welcome back to Yes Whale. By the time this is live (hopefully (I’m not particularly good at scheduling)), I’ll be in New York. I can’t believe it. I have wanted to visit New York for a very long time, so it feels a little surreal to know that I will be there in a matter of days.

Many hours of flying and waiting around in airports, means that plenty of books will be joining me on my trip. I highly doubt I will make it through all of these as I’m certain my days will be full to the brim with exploring the city. But, in case I devour too many on the plane, here are all of the books I am bringing with me to New York.

Just a heads up: As I’m an Amazon Affiliate, if you choose to purchase through any of these links, I’ll earn a small commission. Happy reading!

CROOKED KINGDOM BY LEIGH BARDUGO

I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THIS. If you follow me on Twitter (not so subtle plug), or happened to catch my review of Six Of Crows, you will know that I utterly adore these characters. I am ludicrously excited to be back in Ketterdam with the Dregs (but Kaz and Nina in particular). I have a feeling that this book is going to be spectacular, and I’m never going to want it to end.

CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE BY TOMI ADEYEMI

It has been on my TBR for far too long. I have yet to read a bad review (or even a sub-par review), and I am almost certain that I will absolutely adore it. I know that I won’t have time to read it when I’m back at university, and so I’m desperate to read it while I’m on holiday, and get to know all of these seemingly wonderful characters.

JANE EYRE BY CHARLOTTE BRONTË

It has been a ‘want to read’ of mine for a very long time, and, as it’s on my university reading list, I figured I would bring it along with me. Though I really struggle with classics, I think I’m going to adore this novel.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS BY CHARLES DICKENS

Another novel on my university read list, but as it’s one I’ve read before, it won’t be a difficult read. I adore Dickens’ work, and Great Expectations is one of my favourite novels. The tale itself is utterly captivating, and every character is ludicrously well written. Dickens’ gift for characterisation is one I can only dream of replicating one day. I can’t wait to dive into Pip’s journey for the second time.

CITY OF GHOSTS BY V.E. SCHWAB

I know little of this novel (or Victoria’s work), other than that it’s set in Edinburgh, and there is some sort of veil (or lack of) between life and death. I’ve seen so many of you rave about Victoria and her novels, and I LOVE MG/YA set in Edinburgh. It’s exciting to see familiar haunts and favourite locations pop up in a book that you’re enjoying. On that note, if you know of any good books (preferably YA) set in Edinburgh (or anywhere in Scotland really), please let me know in the comments. It’s a rare thing to find, so I really can’t wait to read this.

I’m certain that I’m going to stumble across more in the airport, and more in New York itself! But, as I said, given that it will be a busy holiday, I might only make it through one or two. But you can never bring too many books with you, right?
