Beach reads

Following on from the beach essentials post here are my not too taxing holiday books.

Jump -  I've been reading Jilly Cooper for years, always set in beautiful english countryside, gorgeous characters with enough romping and humor to make it the perfect beach read.

Twitchhiker - A true story, one guy travels the world using only offers given to him on twitter - sounds amazing and I need to know how he did this!

One Day - Two people, twenty years and one day. I'm sure you've all seen the film trailers but I honestly don't know much about this story. I love to read books first before seeing the films so have deliberately not researched this too much.

My friends and I will have a little book club on holiday and swap with each other throughout the week, I can usually get through a book a day. My middle name is bookworm!

I'll let you know what I think once i'm back.

What has been your best read recently?

After today i'm off work for a two week break one of which is in Corfu so I have scheduled posts and I will be back to catch up on your comments and blogs soon!

  1. I read One Day earlier this year and enjoyed it, looking forward to seeing the film. Twitchhiker sounds intereting too. I'm reading When God was a rabbit at the moment and enjoying it. Have a lovely break and fantastic holiday! x

  11. I'm obsessed with Jane Austen books, and so when I found the book, The Other Mr. Darcy" I was delighted. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves old world courtships and the Pride and Prejudice book.
