Funny, Fiery, Female Fiction: Pip Drysdale on her Top Summer Reads

You by Caroline Kepnes

One of my favourite books – funny, edgy, full of pop culture references, and from the perspective of the bad guy. I loved it.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

This book that made me want to write novels. It’s poetic, hilarious, beautiful and poignant; a love-letter to words.

Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

Any book that begins with a woman digging a grave gets on my list – it’s probably just me but I kept thinking of the grave scene in Hamlet.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote

While the movie will always be one of my favs, the book is so much edgier. Gave me a whole new insight into Holly.

Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughn

I found this book to be both realistic and surprising. Super relevant, clever and believable.
