It’s finally time to lie on the grass under the shining sun reading a good book. Whether you’re planning a vacation or just taking an opportunity to sit on a bench when the sun starts to shine, you need a book that you’ll fall in love with – one that you won’t want to put down!
1. The Young Wives Club by Julie Pennell
This book follows four young wives who come together to help each other through life and love. They realize that love isn’t exactly what they imagined it to be, but together they try and work out the tricky matters of the heart. I grow so much from those conversations with women that just get you, so if you want a good read about women and the powers of friendship then buy it here.
2. All Grown Up by Jami Attenberg
If like me, you were obsessed with Bridget Jones, you’re about to be obsessed with this New York bestseller! Looking for a novel that will make you laugh? This is the story of Andrea, a 39-year-old single woman who is on the prowl for a man. Watching everyone else in her life getting it together makes Andrea rethink adulthood and panic. But when a tragedy happens in the family, they all rethink what really matters. Jami gives a breathtaking, funny account of a woman’s life! Buy it here.
3. Life As I Blow It – Sarah Colona
This book is brilliant because it’s no bullsh*t. Sarah is a comedian, and her memoir really shows that. She knows girls like to have fun and tries to show us not to take stuff so seriously! She knows us more than we know ourselves, and like Sarah, we may be trying to get our sh*t together, but we’ll find ourselves bad-adulting instead! Buy it here.
4. The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon
Bryony is producing bestseller after bestseller and it comes as no surprise. She used to write for the Telegraph, and like Helen Fielding, took us on a journey of her daily mess-ups! Relating to women everywhere, she recounts stories, such as her most meaningful relationship of her twenties (with a Marlboro Light). Bryony exposes the truth of what it’s like to be a single girl in London, and how the man you may think could be the love of your life will hand you the wrong knickers the next day. So, if your twenties weren’t exactly what you expected either, at least laugh about it – buy it here.
5. Into The Water by Paula Hawkins
If you loved Girl On The Train, then get ready to be hooked by Paula’s next thriller. Her next mystery starts with a single mother turning up dead in a river, but she is not the first. Left behind is a fifteen-year-old girl, left in the care of her Aunt, who thought she’d never have to return to this town. Want to know what happens next? Pre-order it here.
