If there’s one thing I love in the summer, it’s sitting in the shade with a great novel and spending hours reading away. Here is a list of a few of my favourite books from the last months. If they’re on this list, they’re worth a read!
This book was front and center of every Indigo communication in the last months, I finally caved it and got it in May. The story focuses on a group of siblings that is planned to inherit a large sum of money they have called “the nest”, when the youngest of the siblings has attained a certain age. An accident changes the course of things and the amount of money they will inherit. The story is juicy and a real page turner, you’ll want to know what happens to each siblings and even the ones that have the biggest faults you’ll care for throughout the story. I lent it to my mother after I finished it and she couldn’t put it down either!
Last summer I read another book from Laura Dave I discussed here and I absolutely loved it. Dave has the ability to create some relatable characters you fall in love with. I had read about this book last year as it was a favourite of Elle and Cosmopolitan. It’s the story of Georgia Ford a strong women that’s about to get married and finds out there are a few secrets the people she loves are keeping from her. It’s centred in her family’s vineyard, which makes it even dreamier. Sure the book is a little predictable, but you will want to know how the story ends and you’ll be done with it within a day!
This story is absolutely amazing, the writing is witty and the story unpredictable and … unrealistic. It focuses on Bernadette Fox, Bee’s mom, a women with a strange past that tends to act a little eccentric in normal situations. I bought this book used while I was in New York last summer and even though the reviews were amazing, it took me a good six months to start reading it. However, once I did I just loved it. It’s very childish in a sense, but it reminds you of the important things. A great pick if you have a love for teen novels!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these!
