Summer is fast approaching and, with everything going on at the moment, my glorious holiday to Florida has had to be rescheduled to next year and any hope I had of sitting by the pool sipping cocktails is long gone. That being said, I am very grateful to have my health and that my loved ones are all keeping safe. It is a very tough time for everyone so, with distractions desperately needed, I decided to share what books I have popped on my summer TBR. Happy reading!
The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver
Lydia and Freddie have been together for almost a decade but, after a tragic accident kills Freddie on Lydia’s birthday, she is given another chance at her old life with Freddie. But what if there’s someone in her new life who wants her to stay?
Writers and Lovers by Lily King
Casey is knocked sideways with grief after her mother passes away. Casey has been writing a novel for the past six years and feels as though she is lost in life. She meets Silas, a kind and handsome stranger, and soon after meets Oscar, a recent widow with two young boys. Casey finds herself torn between two very different relationships that promise two very different futures.
Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
Salem’s Lot is a small New England Town where strange things are happening. Ben Mears, a successful writer, returns to the Lot to write a novel based on his childhood, to exorcise the terrors that have haunted him since childhood. A newcomer causes Ben some unease as things start to happen: a child disappears, a dog is brutally killed and the list starts to grow.
Little Women by Louisa May Allcott
Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn’t be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. Whether they’re putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there’s one thing they can’t help wondering: Will Father return home safely?
