Leaving On A Jet Plane . . .

I am leaving on a jet plane this morning to surprise my Grandfather after his big surgery!! I leave in only hours, so I really need to finish packing, but I just had to share with you which books I am taking with me on the trip. I'm not sure how much time I will have to read, but I thought I should be prepared for anything.

As for my Grandfather . . . he is doing well (as well as to be expected)! He had his voicebox removed after a long battle with cancer (see my latest Literary Locals post for my dedication to him). I'm very nervous to see him for the first time, worrying that I am going to be a complete emotional wreck. It's going to be hard to see him covered in staples and tubes coming out of every possible location. Please be thinking of him and keep him in your thoughts and prayers on his road to a long recovery.

Now, for my books . . . I've decided to take a bunch of review books (I need to get caught up!), but could not pass up a favorite re-read that I know that I can get easily lost in if I need to!

Possible Futures by Jude Treder-Wolff
King by Right of Blood and Might by Anna Walls
A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi (I'm actually almost done with this one!)
Dancing with Ana by Nicole Barker
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

Have you read any of these?


  1. Have a safe trip. Keeping you all in my prayers!

  2. Have a good trip Tif! Hope your grandfather is doing better.

  3. I have Possible Futures on my review TBR right now. It will probably be the next book I read. I look forward to discussing it with you!

    I'll keep you, your grandfather, and the rest of your family in my thoughts and prayers. I think it's wonderful that you are going to go see him!

  4. Glad you're able to visit your grandfather! You are both in my thoughts & prayers.

    Hope you have time to read some of those books! The only one I've read is the Harry Potter.

    Safe home! :)
