So although summer is nearly over I thought I would still do a post on the books on my reading list. I mean book aren't only meant to be read in the summer…although most of these books have a slight summer undercurrent too them. As this is a to read list not a review I'll just add a bit of the blurb from amazon.
  1. Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O'Farrell  - 'a portrait of an Irish family in crisis in the legendary heatwave of 1976. It's July 1976. In London, it hasn't rained for months, gardens are filled with aphids, water comes from a standpipe, and Robert Riordan tells his wife Gretta that he's going round the corner to buy a newspaper. He doesn't come back.'
  1. The Vacationers by Emma Straub -  'It was set to be the family vacation of a lifetime.From Manhattan to Majorca, two weeks in a remote island villa, with the sort of relaxation, culture and cuisine that only Europe can offer. At least, that was Franny's plan. She wasn't counting on the extra baggage . . .'
  1. Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann - 'Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summer heat, sun-bleached boat docks, and midnight gin parties on Martha's Vineyard in a glorious old family estate known as Tiger House. In the days following the end of the Second World War, the world seems to offer itself up, and the two women are on the cusp of their 'real lives'.'
  1. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart - 'We are the Liars. We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury. We are cracked and broken. A story of love and romance. A tale of tragedy. Which are lies? Which is truth?'

So enjoy reading! x
