I love reading and I love writing yet I am a slow reader and I need minimal distractions whilst I read. Therefore summer holidays are where I read the most. This summer I have read five books which I have adored so I thought I would share them with you as you simply must read them yourself. I have listed and filmed a You Tube video which are linked below my Top 5 Books of Summer 2016.
The Last Song
I am a big lover of all of Nicholas Sparks’ novels. If you fancy a love story you must read his whole back catalogue. This book has made me want to go and look after turtles…have a read and you will know what I mean.
A modern and easy to read adaptation of the Taming Of The Shrew. I loved this book and really got hooked on the story line and the characters.
The Witches Kiss
A young girl called Merry has some exciting magic powers. This is a great book to help you escape from reality. I have a strong feeling the Corrs sister are going to be hugely popular after this debut novel.
This book is currently in Zoella’s bookclub picks and unsurpringly in the best sellers list at W.H.Smiths. The pretty cover immediately drew me to it and the synopsis sounded really enticing. Aimed at the tween audience I thought I would be too old for this book yet I adored it whilst laughing and crying on the beach.
My Grandmother Sends Her Regards And Apologises
On holiday last year I read ‘A Man Called Ove‘ and I fell in love with the hilarious heart warming story about an elderly man. This year I read Fredrik Backman’s latest novel ‘My Grandmother Sends Her Regards And Apologises’ and fell in love and laughed out loud once again, yet this time with an elderly lady and her grand daughter. I can not recommend these two books enough.
Other books I have been loving are Elena Ferrante’s books:
Make sure you give these Italian novels a try as soon as possible as they are wonderful 🙂
Book 1: My Brilliant Friend
Book 2: The Story Of A New Name
Book 3: Those Who Leave And Those Who Stay
Book 4: The Story Of The Lost Child
