I have a few long weekends coming up and want to enjoy some new reads. I’m not too fussy on genre, but ideally nothing too heavy!
I’ve got these three on my to-read list!
I have just finished these two and couldn’t recommend them more!
I just finished The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O’Farrell, such a beautiful read, highly recommend! x
I have The End We Start From by Megan Hunter on my list and also recommend Magpie by Elizabeth Day if you like an unnerving read
I’ve just started Double Blind https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/54785539-double-blind
The Richard Osman ‘The Thursday Murder Club’ series of novels are a fun and lovely read.
I really enjoyed City of Girls
Not too heavy but enough depth to not feel vapid! x
I LOVED The Paper Palace!
Notes on Heartbreak by Annie Lord is amazing!
If you’re interested in human behaviour - this is fanastic read
I have just inhaled the William Warwick series by Jeffrey Archer. They are his latest books - clever crime stories, but nothing gruesome, just a right good yarn, and my husband and teenage son enjoyed them equally as much as me.
Not new books, but I have just finished reading all 3 books in ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy by Philip Pullman after watching it on telly with my husband and 2 sons a while ago. I am completely hooked and going to order the 2 prequels of ‘The Book of Dust’ next!
Blood Orange By Harriet Tyce was good
My favourites! I read them as they came out, but they’re just as good re-reading them as an adult!
I just devoured and utterly loved, ‘I Fear My Pain Interests You’ by Stephanie LaCava
Nice photo x
Highly recommend , Bringing Down the Duke , by Evie Dunmore , the first book in the “ league of extraordinary women” brilliant read with lots of interesting, information on the, suffragette movement, but a spicy romance too , this book is all about, Annabelle & Sebastian will they won’t they romance, there is 2 more books , A rouge of one’s own , portrait of a Scotland , really enjoyed the first two books, read them over a weekend, absolutely unputdownable in my opinion, it’s not all ooh and ahh there is an actual story!!!
Milan Kundera ‘The Joke’
Haruki Murakami ’ South of the Border, West of the Sun’
Elena Ferrante ‘The Lying Life of Adults’
Lessons in Chemistry is sheer joy.
