Three Weeks of Re-reads

Because I'm not sure if I'm going to have access to other books. Because I am traveling, and I will read things on my Kindle app, but I don't know what. Who knows.

This is basically why I don't know what will be posted in the next few weeks (and why I missed Top Ten Tuesdays... I was on a train).

Top Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag This Summer

Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly feature over at The Broke and The Bookish (that I am really terrible at doing consistently).

Well, probably not my beach bag. I'm not really a beach kind of person- I'm too fond of the quiet and beaches tend to be crowded. But light, fluffy (that's what people read when they go to beaches, right?) books I will be reading this summer if I can get my hands on them, I guess?

Mysteries, Spies and Secret Operations

I feel like this is a genre I should try to get back into. I like Nancy Drew as a child, so maybe it's time to try some 21st century girl detectives.

The Secrets of Lily Graves- this one seems mostly fun and light (besides, you know, the murder), and about as contemporary as it gets for me (maybe pushing it- I'm not exactly a contemporary fan).

Blonde Ops-it sounds like a fun mystery, and again, about as close to "contemporary" as I dare to tread (I've never had much interest in the genre). Though there seems to be a love triangle... so maybe not...

Spies and Prejudice-again mystery, fun, treading in contemporary.

A Touch of Magic

Because, really, what's a day without that?

The Colour of Magic-I've only read one Terry Pratchett book (Nation) and really enjoyed it... though I'm not sure if I'm ready for the massive undertaking that is Discworld... 

My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century- nonsensical time travel fluff, because why not?

Newt's Emerald- could be fun.

And I think that's it... because I'm somehow drawing a blank here, maybe if I wasn't such a procrastinator, I would have the time to come up with more. Part of the issue with me is that, unless it's part of a series I'm reading, I don't often plan when or where I read a book. I just bring home a giant pile from the library, and pick them up whenever. If I were to go to a beach, I would likely bring whatever it was that I picked up earlier, whatever I'm in the middle of at the time.
