5 Books to read this summer

Ah books… that word makes me very happy. I love reading, it’s a way to escape the real world for a while and completely forget about all your problems/ worries/ stress etc. A lot of people find that kind of relaxation by watching a tv show or movie but I much prefer curling up with a good cup and a glass of wine, that’s my ultimate happy place. This year, I’ve been allowing myself much more time to read than I used to and it’s honestly making me so much happier that I just had to share it with you. I’m sure you’ll have already notice my ‘Books’ category on my blog but if you haven’t then go check it out, it’s a little piece of heaven right there!


I’ve seen this type of post circulate amongst some other book bloggers and really liked the idea because who doesn’t love to add more books to their ‘to read’ list?! So before I babble on any more, here’s 5 books that I think you should read this summer:


Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty


Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

‘Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal…

A murder…a tragic accident…or just parents behaving badly?

What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?’

Disclaimer by Renee Knight



‘When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up and begins to read.

But as she turns the pages, she is horrified to realize she is a key character, a main player.

The story will reveal her darkest secret.

A secret she thought no-one else knew…’

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick


scrappy little nobody

‘Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, defiant, and ‘10 per cent weird’. When she was thirteen, a classmate dropped by her house unexpectedly and discovered written evidence of Anna’s social ineptitude. From then on she decided to ‘keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.’ In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites her readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candour and winningly wry observations.’

Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso



‘In the space of ten years, Sophia Amoruso has gone from high-school dropout to founder and Executive Chairman of Nasty Gal, one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.

Sophia’s never been a typical executive or typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success.

Filled with brazen wake-up calls, cunning and frank observations and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal’s meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground. It proves that success doesn’t come from where you went to college or how popular you were in school. Success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break.’

The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson



‘When his flight gets delayed, Ted Severson meets Lily, a magnetic stranger, in the airport bar. In the netherworld of international travel and too many Martinis, he confesses his darkest secrets, about his wife’s infidelity and how he wishes her dead. Without missing a beat she offers to help him carry out the task…’


These books are all ones that I thoroughly enjoyed and have since recommended to my friends. I’m always on the lookout for more great books to read so please let me know which ones you’ve loved recently in the comments!
