thoughtsofjustafan Summer Book Club

Apparently Summer is here…or on its way…promise!

Anyway, it’s the time of year when lots of us are going away on holiday or at least wishing we were, and holidays are times when we often get more time to read – I know I do.

At thoughtsofjustafan, we like to share good music so I thought, why not share good books too?  Use the contact form below to share your reading recommendations, maybe if you feel like it, why you like this book so much xx

I’ll go first – and I’m cheating with two!

The first one is a short read and was the must read book of a couple of years ago, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  You can romp through this book very quickly but the relative brevity of the read in no way prepares you for the way the book stays with you long after.  I still dip into it a good two years after reading.

The second book I’m recommending is another cracking read and a must for fans of the Mitford sisters and the times and novels of Evelyn Waugh.  The edited The Mitfords:  Letters Between Six Sisters, letters between the endlessly fascinating Mitford sisters.  You can either read straight through from beginning to end or dip in and out as is your wont; either way, it’s  a fantastic read.
