Characters I Want to go on Holiday With

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

Is there anything better than a holiday? It’s so great to forget about the troubles of work and daily life, and just kick back with a good book and some great cocktails. I’ve been away by myself, but going somewhere with a group of friends is infinitely more fun.

If there was any fictional character I could bring with me on my trips, it would have to be one of these lovely people below. Once we stopped fighting about where to go, we’d have a fantastic time together.

Fictional Places Perfect for a Holiday

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

This post is like an homage to wanderlust. I am the first to suggest a holiday among my friends, and it’s always to the most amazing and exciting destinations. Unfortunately, there are some places I’ll just never get to visit.

Not because they’re too far away, or the cost of getting there is too expensive. It’s because they straight up don’t exist. If I could have my dream getaway to any world in literature, these places are definitely top of the list.

Perfect Pool Reads

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

If you’re going on a holiday, one of the most important thoughts is what books to bring. My aunt comes to me regularly when off to visit her in laws in Spain, requesting the best books to keep her entertained from the moment she checks in. When she comes to me for recommendations, these are books I’ve recommended to her and she’s absolutely loved.

Books on my Summer TBR

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

Today, I’m going to bend the rules just a little bit and still write a TBR, but for a specific thing. Have you heard of the OWLs?

If you’re a Harry Potter nerd, you’ll know exactly what I mean. For non Potterheads, the OWLs are the exams Hogwarts students take in their fifth year. This year, G from Book Roast set up the OWLs Readathon in April, and there was so much additional material it was INSANE. There’s a set of careers you could follow, and prompts to help you fill out each of the subjects you needed for your career. It sounds like the perfect thing for me, right? It was – but I only learned about it halfway through April. It was too late to put a TBR together.

Books with Sunshine on the Cover

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph at A Little But a Lot.

Summer is the perfect time for a sunny read. It’s the optimum beach reading time, and there’s so many books that bring the sunshine. These books have some of the happiest covers, and they will really brighten up your summer reading.

This is a pretty small selection, and I could honestly have gone on for ages with some really sunshiney books.
