I'd like some help choosing my vacation reads. I leave in 12 days for Guatemala and Belize! I only want to bring light and entertaining books for this trip as my main priorities are consuming tropical beverages, seeing some ruins, napping in hammocks, and touching a manatee (I asked Jeff if we could bring one home and keep it in the neighbor's Koi pond. Jeff said we could keep it in the back yard and he'd hose it down like a beached whale).
My point is, I'm looking for a good, guilty pleasure read (or 2 or 3). The favoured front runners at the moment are:
1. The latest Marian Keyes book - This Charming Man. I heart Marian Keyes. I can't explain it or even justify it, but it's true.
2. One of Monica McInerney's books - I've read The Faraday Girls, Family Baggage and The Alphabet Sisters. Are any of her other books worth picking up? Has anyone read them?
3. The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. I've heard some harsh criticism but I've also heard that it's totally addictive. Thoughts?
Has anyone read any good YA (young adult) books that they might recommend for a vacation? Or maybe a good mystery?
