I’m leaving in 2 days to Taiwan for 3 weeks and I cannot be more excited. This also means I won’t have much time to read but that hasn’t stopped me from uploading a shit tonne of eBooks onto my Kobo. I have a thing for variety.
Before I break out into heat rashes and get really tanned in the 38°C (about 100°F for you Americans) with 75% humidity weather, which makes it feel like it’s 45°C (113°F), I decided to compile a TBR list for my trip.
I have a total of 17 ebooks on my Kobo but there are a few that take precedent over others. These are the 5 books that I’m hoping I’ll read (all summaries are taken directly from Goodreads):

Title: Final Girls
Author: Riley Sager
Start date: July 18, 2017
Finish date: N/A…Abandoned
Warning! Some spoilers ahead.
I’M SO SAD AND DISAPPOINTED. I was really excited for Final Girls because not only did the premise sound interesting, but I also have not read a really good thriller/horror this year yet.
To simply put it, I couldn’t care enough about the story or the characters; especially not pill-popping heroine Quincy. When you find yourself not giving a single fuck about the “tragic” protagonist, then there’s something clearly wrong, and unfortunately, throwing the book out the window and jumping ship is the quickest solution.
Final Girls is about the aftermath of a massacre similar to that of Friday the 13th slasher films. We follow Quincy Carpenter who is struggling hard with trying to live a “normal life” with her boyfriend. Everything is fine and dandy until a fellow final girl Lisa randomly commits suicide which triggers a series of events that cause Quincy to revisit her own trauma.
What a hot mess of a book.
