Recent Reads #1 | Holiday Reading

I love reading. For me there's nothing better than diving into a book and being taken away to another fictional world for a few hours. With various visionary problems I have, that's a hell of a lot more difficult, but thanks to kindle and being able to make the text size so much bigger I've been able to read more than I otherwise would've been able to - if a lot slower than I'd like! I thought I'd share some books that I read whilst I was on holiday, two fictions and one non-fiction.

The Curvy Girls Club by Michele Gorman - available on Amazon here

This book I got mainly because of two reasons - it was in the kindle sale, and one of my all time favourite authors Sophie Kinsella had commented on how good it was. I must say it took me a little while to get into it properly, but once I did I loved it! It's a feel good read about four friends who decide to make a club where size is irrelevant, with the message that it's important to just have fun and love yourself. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, The Curvy Girls Club is full of friendship, drama and romance - perfect for chick lit lovers!

Bonjour, Blogger! by Hayley Constantine - ebook available for Kindle here

Whether you're just starting your blog, or in a bit of a blogging flump this book is so helpful. If you've read this post you'll know that I was having trouble enjoying blogging, and this book has helped so much. Full of blogging hints and tips, as well as some useful help with HTML code which is still a struggle for me, and a host of recommended blogs to read this is a seriously good book for any blogger! It really helped me realise that I wanted to just blog for the fun of blogging again, and is a great little 'handbook' to have for when blogging block hits, or just to flick through for advice.

The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan - available here

I love Jenny Colgan's writing, and so when I was looking for books to download before I went on holiday this seemed like a perfect choice. And of course it was. The book flips between the stories of Claire and Anna and their times in Paris, and honestly for me it was just a beautiful book. A little sad in places, but such a satisfying read that left you wanting more - like chocolate really! Also there are loads of chocolatey recipes at the back that all sound so delicious. I got through this book super quickly; it was an addictive read that has made me want to go to Paris even more than I wanted to before I read it!
