As July begins I’m now turning my attention to my up coming holiday and the most important decision that I will make… what books to take
While I love to bring stacks of paper backs with me it isn’t always practical especially when I can read a book a day so this year I’m looking for books that I can read on my iPad or kindle. I’ve created a list of books that are both popular but with the added extra of a few less know books. So happy reading
1: The Royal Roommate
I have previously mention how much I enjoyed this book and while I probably won’t be reading it myself I highly encourage Romance lovers to splurge the few quid on this steamy read.
Synopsis: ‘Sid is Army strong and sinfully sexy. He is tasked to investigate a woman suspected of having connections with a rebel group. The style of investigation was not his choice, and he is asked to move in as the roommate of the person of interest, Amy. Amy was thrilled to start her internship in San Francisco and wasn’t expecting a man with rock-solid abs as her roommate. The moment she laid eyes on him, she knew he was bad news. The attraction was undeniable and they both wondered how long they could hold on to their resolve. Sid didn’t want to sleep with a suspect even if she was wildly beautiful and sexy. Amy wasn’t interested in a fling. Just when Sid is about close his investigation and declare Amy’s innocence, he finds out something about her that changes everything. She becomes the most important person in his life.’
2: Guilty Wives by James Patterson
There’s a rule in my family that no holiday is complete unless at least one of us is reading a James Patterson novel. I picked this one up recently and love the concept so far.
Synopsis: ‘The holiday of a lifetime becomes a fight for survival in this gripping summer thriller from James Patterson. Sitting in a dark, dank prison cell in Paris, serving a life sentence for murder, Abbie Elliot tries to piece together the story of how she came to be here. It all happened in Monte Carlo, where she was having the holiday of a lifetime with her three best friends away from their stifling lives, and husbands. Abbie remembers casinos, nightclubs, champagne and private yachts. The next thing she can remember is a swarm of police storming the yacht and arresting her and her friends. Abbie has been set up, she knows it. But now she must find out who would do this to her, and why. Or she will spend the rest of her life rotting in that cell.’
3. For syfy lovers out there who are looking for something light hearted I recommend The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy the book is completely irrelevant but also amazingly funny.
Synopsis: One Thursday Lunchtime the earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun and the Galaxy is a very strange and startling place.’
4. For iPad/ kindle readers I recommend The Enjoying series with each book only costing £2.99 you can’t really go wrong.
My top pick of the series is ‘Nothing left to lose’ I especially loved that while it was a romance it was also a lot darker than that which is what really caught my attention and love for these books.
Synopsis: ‘Annabelle Spencer life is every girls dream until she was kidnapped by a big time drug and arms dealer Carter Thomas. Three years after she is rescued Ashton Taylor is brought in to help protect her and maybe be the one to help her rebuild her life’
5: Now would also be the perfect time to dust of your old Stephen King horror books with the return of ‘IT to cinemas why not also read the classic book. Or if clowns aren’t your thing The Shinning always makes a good read.
Synopsis: To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part. A good place to live. It is the children who see – and feel – what makes the small town of Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one’s deepest dread. Sometimes IT reaches up, seizing, tearing, killing . . . Time passes and the children grow up, move away and forget. Until they are called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.
I can’t wait to be sipping cocktails and reading some of these amazing books at the end of the month…
