Kia Ora from New Zealand! I have just arrived in a rainy Franz Joseph Glacier and it is the perfect time to sit down and catch up with you all! One of the best parts of being on holiday is all the reading time! I am on tour so there is plenty of bus travel. So far I have read five ebooks and one manuscript. Reading on the iPad is so easy and convenient but I am missing my books! I have been here a week today and I have already managed to find 4 bookstores – amazingly I haven’t bought a single book… Yet. Can I make it three weeks without caving?
I have mainly been reading YA on this trip and so far I have been really disappointed with the stories. I have read The Selection by Kiera Cass, Disruption by Jessica Shirvington, Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas, The Intern by Gabrielle Tozer and Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry. Their storylines are weak and it makes you wonder what makes them so popular… There are so many great YA stories that should do better than they currently do!
Next up in the reading pile is a Kate Forsyth, a Fiona McIntosh and Garth Nix. I can’t wait!
Over to you – what have you been reading?
