i'mmmmm gonna soak up the sunnnnn

in 22 days, i will be here.

for my 21st birthday, my mama is taking me on a cruise! 
we'll be going to belize, grand cayman, and cozumel (!!!!!!!!)
i have never been on a cruise! i don't usually take big vacations, so this is a prETTY big deal for me. (and 7 days after that, my dad is taking me to las vegas!) 

i know that we will be doing a lot of cruise-y things (probably, i don't even know how a cruise goes down) but i also know that i will probably be reading...a bunch.

i know i ask y'all this often, BUT what is a book i simply have to read??
i'd love to load up my kindle before we leave.
i'll read just about anything (i just finished dark places by gillian flynn and oh my GOSH)
thanks, loves!



  1. Okay, our mamas must know each other or something, because mine took me on a cruise for my birthday too!! We went through the Bahamas back in July :)

    Book-wise, honestly you probably won't have a lot of time to read but I recommend The A-List series by Zoey Dean, any and all: Janet Evanovich, Nicholas Evans, Jennifer Weiner, or Sophie Kinsella. With the exception of Evans, those are all mostly light reads, funny and not as heavy as say John Green. Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is hilarious even though they're all murder mysteries.

    If you want more, my Goodreads is overflowing with recommendations :)

  2. House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. I suggest this book to pretty much everyone, but no one will freaking read it! I love it. It's scary-ish and totally weird. I love it.

  3. Sounds like so much fun! I highly reccommend The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht or Swamplandia by Karen Russell. Any summary I could make up about either of them would not do them justice AT please trust the list as is :)

  4. Wow! What an amazing birthday present, hope you have fun and have a great Birthday--- I am sure you will! and THEN Vegas! You're so lucky!

  5. Have you read Jellicoe Road? It was.. beyond words. Lovely and painful and so beautiful.

    Have fun in the sun!

  6. Oh my gosh how fab! Happy 22 days til your birthday.

    Books, read Object of Beauty.


  7. Wow, you parents are amazing! Awesome and fun trips! YAY!

    Books to read: If I Stay (followed by Where She Went), Jellicoe Road & The Sky is Everywhere.
