My latest book Secrets Between Friends is a perfect holiday read – the cover says so! In January I’ll be heading to the coast for three weeks of total relaxation and this incudes reading as many books as I can between all the holiday swimming, walking, talking, etc etc. If you are chasing a great holiday read on your own down time may I suggest the following books.
The Wrong Girl by Zoe Foster Blake: I just listened to this on audio while at work driving the header and it had me laughing out loud. I almost want to read it again so I can see the words for myself while I lay on the beach. It had great funny moments, a sexy rural chef and a happy ending…what more do you need from a holiday read!
The Drifter by Anthea Hodgson: Anthea is funny in real life so it’s no big secret that her books would be a great read with ‘laugh out loud’ moments. Plus, you can’t help but fall in love with the bearded swaggie hero. Definitely a holiday read, but you may need tissues on occasion. (read in a sheltered position from holiday makers).
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty: This was my first taste of Liane’s work and it didn’t disappoint. It was a page turner and I read it in one sitting. Best read with a glass of wine!
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: If you haven’t read this book yet…why not? With The Good Doctor on TV doing so well, this book will be more relatable than ever. I loved the characters and that I didn’t read it when all the hype was around.
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. I loved this rewrite of Pride and Prejudice. Mainly around a TV show called Eligible. Ha, I didn’t pick that for a storyline. Anyway it was still enjoyable and funny. (Yes, it is good to have a book that will make you laugh while on holidays)
Now that should be a start…to get you cracking in that feet up, sunnies on, glass in one hand and book in the other holiday position. Now go forth and relax!
