Quick & easy books to read while travelling!🌍

Hello and howdy.

This weeks blog posts revolve around one common theme: travelling, which is why I come to you today with a list of recommendations that I think will be perfect to read while you’re out exploring the world.

In my eyes the best books to read while travelling are the ones that are quick and easy. They drag you in and don’t let go until you’ve finished, preferably just in time for landing, so that’s what we’re gonna narrow down this list of recomendations.


Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I could sit here and recommend you every single one all Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ books because they all fit the criteria of “quick and easy” but I’m going with her Debutantes duology.

I feel like most people travel for their summer holidays and this definitely has the better summer vibe. It follows a girl who’s convinced to take part in the Debutant season by her grandmother in exchange for college tuiton, but along the way she uncovers so many family secretes.

It honestly blends the best parts of a soap opera with the best parts of a YA mystery, elevated even more by Barnes’ talent for writing thriller style novels. Cannot recommend this one enough.

If you haven’t read these 2021 releases, you should!

HelloπŸ‘‹I just got back from uni where the same girl who said I reminded her of a “golden retriever who’s just happy to be here” a couple of weeks ago, today said I reminded her of a “languid capybara”. I have many questions, the main one being: Am I being bullied and I just don’t realise or care??

I’ve sent this question circling around my friends but I just wanted to share that here as well because I’m still confused and trying to process.

Anyways, moving away from the animals I apparently remind people of, I’m here to talk about 2021 releases you should read if you haven’t already!!

I did this for 2020 releases just a couple of months ago. I was also planning on leaving this post til the end of the year but I’ve already read a bunch of 2021 releases I want to recommend. I’ve got even more on my TBR so this is probably part one, with part two coming later in the year.

The Joy of Christmas Book Tag πŸŽ…πŸŽ„

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Eve is a lawless day. I don’t know about your family, but we only really have traditions on the night: nice bath, new pyjamas, etc. So the daytime always feels chaotic.

Right now my brother is having a minor mental-breakdown in the kitchen because we’re making him follow through and make the brownies he promised us weeks ago. And I’m not so patiently waiting for him to finish so I can have a bacon sandwich. With the rate he’s going, I’m going to stave before I can have my breakfast.

While we drown out his complaining with some not-Christmas music (we really should have some Michael Buble on but we’ve got Little Mix instead), and I wait for food, I figured I’d do the Joy of Christmas Book Tag!


1) Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating? ✨

I feel like I’m a bit behind on the 2022 releases compared to previous years. Besides from new books from my faves (which I talked about in a post the other day) I don’t know too much.

There are definitly two I have my eye on though. The first being So This is Ever After by F.T Lukens. I’m drawn to anything with such a pretty cover, the fact it’s pegged as Carry On but with Arthurian Legend makes me very excited.

And then there’s also This May End Badly by Samantha Markum which I actually thought was coming out in 2021 and was very disappointed when I realised I had to wait longer. I’m pretty sure this is just a romance with a boarding school and a leather-jacket-wearing bad boy. That’s really all it takes to get me interested.
