Every summer I take a break from my monthly book club recommendations in place of my carefully crafted summer reading list. So, may I present to you my favourite book picks for summer 2020, including everything from romance and thrillers to non-fiction and personal development.
This month’s pick is called The Switch by newcomer Beth O’Leary. The Switch is the heartwarming tale of Leena and her grandmother, Eileen. In need of a change they decide to swap lives for 2 months. The Switch is full of laugh out loud moments, relationship meltdowns and a whole lot of love. It is what I would describe as the perfect feel-good summer read!
If you’re finding yourself bored in lockdown, I have a fascinating read for you this month to keep you busy! I was very intrigued by this book, and it has certainly sparked a lot of debate. This month’s book club pick is Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid.
This is the first post I’ve written since the COVID-19 outbreak. Like many others, I have been adjusting to the new normal. We find ourselves in unprecedented times and as we try to navigate what that means, we need to find ways of keeping busy, focusing on the positives and most importantly, having fun! As you know, I absolutely love reading as a form of escapism and relaxation so it’s great to be able to share my recommendations with you all. So, I’m excited to share April’s book club pick with you all, the amazing Normal People by Sally Rooney.
American Dirt is a heartbreaking tale of a mother and her eight-year-old son on the run from Mexico to the United States, having escaped an attack by one of the most dangerous Mexican drug cartels. Unputdownable, if you read anything this year then it needs to be this book!
Each month I absolutely love browsing the book stores in search of my next book club pick to share with you all. This month’s choice is the masterful Someone We Know by Shari Lapena.
We’re back with the first book club of 2020 and the decade! This month I wanted to take it back to a book that was released in 2018 and is a must-read if you haven’t already – Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owen.
Hello December! The countdown to Christmas is on! This month I have chosen the perfect book to get you in the festive mood and it’s sure to bring a smile to your face… Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella.
This month’s book pick is the amazing BRAVE by Rose McGowan. A memoir and manifesto that spares no detail on the truth about the entertainment industry, and empowers everyone to be brave.
With The Booker Prize 2019 announcement just around the corner, this month’s book pick is from the longlist: My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite.
This months book pick is The man who didn’t call by Rosie Walsh, the first novel she’s written under her own name and it’s a winner! I made a note on my phone to add this to my reading list as it sounded intriguing and I’m so happy that I did! Read on to find out more.
Back in April I ordered my first ever Reading In Heels box, a subscription service that delivers a handpicked book plus a variety of different treats to you in the post, every month. If you follow my Instagram then you will have seen me post about this before but I wanted to officially write something about this in my book club section as I think it’s such a great idea and the perfect present for all of the book lovers out there. What is Reading In Heels? Reading In Heels is a book subscription service for the intelligent, modern, stylish woman. The team handpick one book (contemporary literary fiction) each month and then select 3-4 beauty and lifestyle treats to go alongside this. It’s a win win, you get to read new fiction that you might not necessarily have picked out yourself and you get to try new beauty products! There is also the option to join the digital bookclub where you can share your review of the book and discuss it with other members …
