I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but in many countries, there is a big break coming up, and I thought I would share some good vacation-type reads. So put these on hold at the 图书馆 now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials 由 Philip Pullman
(The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)-I read this series once over a break and it is fantastic. Deep and meaningful while still a quick read. The 2nd one is my favorite.

2. Anna Karenina 由 Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing 图书 I have ever read. I tackled this one over a 圣诞节 break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when 你 have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series 由 Christopher Paolini
(Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr) This is a good chance to catch up before the 4th book comes out. (Anyone know when that is, btw?) People may laugh at this pick, but the 图书 are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. 你 want to relax after all!

4. 1984 由 George Orwell
If you've been putting it off, now's your chance to read this timeless classic!

5. Watership Down 由 Richard Adams
I know a book about rabbits on a quest sounds ridiculous but this book is completely wonderful. You'll get through it in no time.

6. Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales
This book looks intimidating, but each of the stories are very short and they are magical. 你 will 爱情 this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

7. Lord of the Rings 由 J.R.R. Tolkien
Now, I understand that this task is a little overwhelming, but at least try to finish one of these 3 图书 over break. I promise it's still good even if 你 spread it out. Tackle one this break, another in the spring and the last one over the summer.

8. The Girl of the Limberlost 由 Gene Stratton Porter
I completely loved this book when I was 15. It's a beautiful story. It has little to do with vacation, but it's a thick book, though a quick read once 你 get into it.

9. Birth of Venus 由 Sarah Dunant
If 你 like historical fiction, this one was very surprising to me in a good way. I usually don't go straight for the bestsellers, I'm 更多 of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

10. The Last Wife of Henry VIII 由 Carolly Erickson
Another historical fiction. I learned a lot about English history and about Henry VIII and his many wives. The 图书 starts when he's still married to his first wife. I read this book literally from cover to cover without setting it down. A great fast read.

So there 你 have it. This is not a 列表 of my 最喜爱的 图书 (though many do fit into that category) but instead a true 列表 of 图书 I think 你 will find very enjoyable over vacation. So challenge yourself and read as many as possible 或者 even just one! Let me know what 你 think, I'd 爱情 to hear comments.

I never really planned 阅读 Hush Hush. In bookstores, I just passed 由 the books, seeing Hush Hush in a display. I know its about Fallen 天使 but the cover didn't buy me. I didn't study it too well...until I read it.

I borrowed the book from my classmate who's an ultimate bookworm. I started 阅读 it since she handed it to me. I finished it just today. =)

For me, Patch was bad-ass, sense of humor, sweet and caring. I liked the way he did to Nora when they were making tacos in the 厨房 then she was sat up on the counter and Patch started 接吻 her jaw. Also another one especially the...
