Need A Good Read? Relax? Here Are The 5 Best Books Of This Week



Reading is a great way to unwind, we’re probably almost all guilty of climbing into bed only to pick up our phones (for the millionth time that day, ahem) and having a last minute scroll through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, oh and while you’re at it you might as well log onto Pinterest. A few inspirational quotes and deserted beaches before bedtime never did anyone any harm right?

Actually, browsing your phone right before bed can actually be quite harmful for your sleep, especially if you don’t regularly eat these foods that help you sleep! So instead of hitting refresh on Instagram, check out one of these top book recommendations to get stuck into before bedtime.

Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler (released 24 May)


Tess is a 22-year-old who knows nobody and lives in a rented room in Williamsburg. She gets a job as a waitress at a celebrated restaurant and starts learning some hard lessons in life, love and privilege.

The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson


For a fictional drama that will keep you in total suspense and gripped from the get-go, add this Sunday Times Bestseller to your amazon basket. It will certainly keep you guessing…

Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse


What happens when your whole world turns out to be a lie? That’s exactly what happened to Hannah Reilly, after a whirlwind romance and a husband who one day never returns home. A story of twists and turns, this is definitely a read that will keep you on your toes.

The Night Manager by John le Carré


In case you didn’t catch Tom Hiddleston (swoon) in the recent adaption of The Night Manager, you might want to read the original novel. Detailing an undercover operation to bring down a major international arms dealer, this is a story full of suspense right until the very end.

Love Style Life by Garance Doré


And to end the list on a lighter note, a bible for the art of French taste and fashion. Having evolved from blog to book, Grace offers her best tips on – you guessed it- love style and life. A charming read, with a little humour and personal storytelling along the way, this is a must have. Plus the cover is very Instagram friendly. There we said it.
