October is one of those months where I really love to hunker down and begin my cold weather reading. I especially love to read slightly darker, more paranormally (not an actual word, but I'm going with it) novels. It's just a short hop to Christmas, too. I'm a sucker for a fun Christmas romance.
With the advent of e-readers, most people who travel just take that with them, and read on the go. I'm a bit of an old fashioned creature, and I prefer having paperbacks with me when I travel. They don't need recharging, I can read them anywhere, and I usually will leave them behind when I'm finished. I have two with me on the plane, and the rest packed in my luggage. I sit down, buckle up, and start reading.
So what am I taking with me on this trip? I've been wanting to start the Jim Butcher series The Codex Alera, so book one: The Furies of Calderon is coming with me. I'm a fan of Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series and I've got three to read; I'm a bit behind! Another series I really enjoy is Simon Green's Ghost Finders. It's darker, for sure, but I love it. It would make a pretty good BBC series. And I just might toss in a romance to even it all out.
Luckily, I am traveling with friends who are equally enamored with books and reading--we all met working at a bookstore, so I think you'll probably understand our mindset.
And who knows, my e-reader may just come with me, too.
I'll be back with fresh reviews in a few weeks! Ciao!
