The Best Thing That Never Happened To Me: Laura Tati and Jimmy Rice.
This is instantly my favourite out of all these books, I read this book super quickly and was so eager for bedtime or a train journey to dive back into it. This book is set in London with two main characters, Holly and Alex. Best friends when young and reunited when in the working world, they both have had their lives turn out differently than expected and find that their feelings are very much there. The chapters are split between Alex, Holly, Alex, Holly and so fourth which is very refreshing. The book will have you laughing and has all the romance you’d want with humour and wit too! I cant say too much without giving it all away but this is such a fun summer read, its easy to read, and provides a romance story that takes its time with laughter and experiences on the way!
A Gift To Remember: Melissa Hill
Think Confessions of a Shopohollic with this novel, yet her obsession is books. Add in some romance, a dog and New York and you’ve got yourself a highly popular summer read. We find Darcy, a book shop worker crash straight into Mr Right? But is he? I can’t say this was a easy read, I found it very slow to begin and cliche city, I know chick flick type books are but this was just so predictable I wasnt excited to know what happened next, because I could tell. Nonetheless for a book that does the job or if you want it to last and not feel addicted to, it works. Personally, its a good book and story yet quite predictable. This is such a big seller at the moment but for me I didnt get on with it however, it wont break the bank if you want to try it anyway.
What if you chose the different man? What if you’re first love was the one? If you’re not the one travels back and fourth in Jennifer’s life to show what path’s her life would of taken if she made different choices. Following an accident and being put into a coma her dreams take her to the past, week before her accident and the present to explore how her life could be different. Its a great summer read and I read it super quickly, its a happy-go-lucky kind of book and has a twist with the ending which I think makes this more unique than just you’re typical cliche what if. It was an enjoyable read and I really enjoyed Jennifer as a character. Its a super-cheap kindle read so definitely recommend for a holiday read!
