The Holiday Reads

I'm about to go travelling for over a week in Canada and America and i've been putting together some books to take with me. Holidays are one of my favourite times to catch up on some reading, especially since we will have some long flights and a long train journey in between. I've found 4 to take put i'm going to try cut it down to 3 to save some weight in my suitcase (so there's more space for beauty purchases of course).

These are the two i'm trying to pick between. I love Gone Girl so i've been meaning to read the other Gillian Flynn books. Sharp Objects is smaller so i'm leaning toward that one. 
Dark Places - I've actually started this one and it's taking me a little while to get into it. It's about a girl who's family are murdered and her brother is convicted of the crime. She's been a drifter ever since and begins to realise that her family had something to hide, especially her brother. I love the premise and I think I need to sit down and power through it. 
Sharp Objects - This one is about Camille who is sent to investigate the disappearance of two young girls. As clues lead to dead ends Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims and realises she will have to unravel the puzzle of her own past is she's to survive this homecoming. The book sounds like to has a few twists and as I said is a shorter length so I think it will be a quick read.

I've read a few Linwood Barclay books and he always manages to have me hook and unable to put a book town. I thought I would take one of his as I know I will enjoy it. 
The Accident - Based on the story of Glen who's wife's car is found at the scene of a drink driving accident which took three lives. His wife is also dead and appears to be the cause of the accident. The again seems to be full of twists as you find out more about what happened as secrets come to the surface.

I've been wanting to get into Stephen King books for a long time. I was going to start with a classic like The Shinning but I spotted this on the supermarket shop and the premise really interested me. 
Mr Mercedes - Bill Hodges is a retired cop tormented by the Mercedes masacre, a case he never solved. Brady Hartsfield, the perpetrator of the notorious crime and preparing to kill again. I'm guessing the two story will intertwine and be a really gripping story.  

So those are the books i'm planning on taking on holiday. I'm still trying to pick between the Gillian Flynn ones; if you read either of them let me know if you enjoyed them. I love crime novels as I find them to be the best page turners and i'm looking forward to making my way through all of these. What are you currently reading?
