Q: Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

Reading is one of the main reasons I look forward to vacations.  Sometimes my daily work and school life doesn't allow for much pleasure reading so I use these rare moments to delve in to my overflowing TBR tower. 
While there are plenty of opportunities to do other things on cruise ships, I always use these trips to catch up on reading.  There is nothing better than finding a lawn chair overlooking the ocean and sitting there all day while cute waiters serve me fun drinks.  I've been on quite a few cruises and I think I have gone through at least 5 books on each trip.  My preference is Caribbean cruises because of the added advantage of beach-time reading!

Las Vegas is one of my favorite cities in the country even though I don't really gamble or party that much.  I just love the whole vibe of the city!  While there are usually other things to do and see in Vegas than the pages of a book, I always make time to get reading done on the long plane ride or hanging out by the hotel pool early in the morning.

This Friday's Question
A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to
start your very own book blog?


I have been a blogger since June of 2011.  I was inspired after spending almost a year on Goodreads and meeting fabulous people through that site.  I am one of those people who loved discussing books with people, but I quickly learned that few of my friends enjoyed these conversations.  So Goodreads was a way for me to indulge my love of book talk and recommendations.  I started visiting my GR friends' blogs and fell in love with the whole concept.  I was a little hesitant at first, but finally got up the nerve to start Feminist Fairy Tale Reviews.  And I can say I have had a blast since then!

  1. Great answer! I love the beach, but I don't really like going home with sand shoved in all the places you don't want it to be shoved in. -.- A cruise sounds really relaxing, but then again, I'm everything motion-sick, so that wouldn't work out for me. (I know, I'm so problematic) But I hope you get to go on a Caribbean cruise soon! :)
