When I was packing to go to New York knowing I was going for a month I thought it be best to take two books with me, which was all fine until I ended up buying 4 more.
So I ended up coming home with six books…
Anyway each book (Bar one, I got 4 chapters in & decided to give up) were great reads..
This Modern Love – Will Derbyshire
By Will Derbyshire, This Modern Love is a collection of love letters & photos all written not just by fans but by anyone who wanted to contribute. Split into 3 parts of a relationship Beginning, Middle and End, This Modern Love is a lovely book.
Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
WOW. What a book… I loved Girl on the Train & I really liked the aspect of finding out what happened as Rachel pieced it all together. I’m not going to spoil it because everyone should read this book if you haven’t already but the ending is so shocking I just didn’t see it coming! Read it Now!
Sweetbitter – Stephanie Danler
This was a great book although it was a little slow at times, but it’s defiantly one I’d read again. The story follows Tess as she begins working as a back waiter in a New York restaurant. From dealing with growing up, struggling with jealous and a love triangle thrown into the mix this is a great book for a cold night in..
Dragonfly in Amber – Diana Gabaldon
The second book in the Outlander Series and the basis of the second season of the TV Series is just as good as the first if not better. Continuing on Claire and Jamie’s story this time split between Paris, Scotland. The story also time hops between Claire’s time with Jamie in the 1740’s and the 1960’s when she returns to Scotland with her daughter 20 years after going back through the stones. Having watched the TV Show first before reading the book makes it so much easier to understand both the show and the book.
The Hopefuls – Jennifer Close
The Hopefuls was such a great book. The book followed couple Beth and Matt and their new couple friends Jimmy and Ashleigh as they went through the process of Jimmy running for a big Texas Campaign and Matt working as his campaign manager. The book showed the struggles and jealousy that this tight nit group went through as the campaign progresses.
Have you been reading anything great lately? I’m always looking for more book recommendations!
