Today at The Book Corner Holly has stopped by to talk about her summer authors!
I have thought long and hard about what should be my ‘topic’ (I’m studious like that...ha!) and after deciding I couldn’t possibly pick my top 5 summer reads (because I have no self control and would struggle to get it below 50!) I thought that if I chose my top 5 authors whose books are perfect for a bit of summer reading then I might not be deliberating quite so much. So here we go!
One of my first authors whose books I feel make perfect summer reading is Jill Mansell. I am a massive fan of all of her novels and I’m yet to read one I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed. If you’re looking for a beach setting then I would recommend The Unpredictable Consequences of Love which is based in the gorgeous sounding seaside village of St Carys. One of her earlier novels, Sheer Mischief is also set in a Cornish town and will have you dreaming about holidays. (If you’re into your book cover’s looking beach-y then Sheer Mischief is perfect for you...)
My next author for essential summertime reading is Catherine Alliott. Ever since reading The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton I have been a Catherine Alliott fan. Her books definitely have that ‘something’ for me, brilliantly drawn characters, interesting plot lines and plenty of laugh-out-loud humour too. There’s usually a more serious undertone to some of her books but that works brilliantly alongside the lighter side equalling the perfect combination. Her latest release, My Husband Next Door I found to be one of her best. Whilst it doesn’t have a beach setting (the main characters live on a farm) it’s definitely got a rural, countryside feel to it, which is just as enjoyable. Plus, all of the hilarity of the animals makes for brilliant added extras!
Thanks again for having me on board, Sam. Writing this has been huge fun and also made me really want to go back a read all of these lovely books! Have a great summer fellow bookaholics!
