Pick My Beach Reads!

beachbooksAs I may have hinted once or twice (or three million times) in the last few days, I’m heading out on a beach vacation tomorrow. As usual, I have my Kindle stocked with books and manuscripts, but there’s always that time on a airplane when all electronic devices must be turned off, and I can’t just SIT there, can I? (Hush you that think I should talk to my seatmates/traveling companions!) So I’ve decided I need two hard copy, dead-tree form books.

But which ones to pick? There are SO MANY great choices!

Well, I’m turning to the powers of the internet to help me decide. I’m posting a list of my top six, in three categories, and ask you to help me decide on the final two. It’s like Design Star, but with fewer trips to the emergency room and mental breakdowns. Ready for our contenders?

In the category of Embarrassing Omissions (Classic/Award-winning): Howl’s Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones or Going Bovine by Libba Bray.

Int he category of Recent and Soon-To-Be Big Releases: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan or Matched by Ally Condie.

And our final category, Read ‘Em Before Book Two comes out: Rampant by Diana Peterfreund or Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld.

So, what will it be? Remember, I’m only bringing TWO! To the polls, but feel free to add your reasons behind your choice(s) in the comments! And vote quickly, please — I have to finish packing tonight!
