This year I included yet another Shopaholic book by Sophie Kinsella into the mix, Mini Shopaholic [LINK]. Weirdly enough I already owned this book but it was in a hardback and I’m not really a fan of hardbacks, especially in the summer. They’re too clunky to hold and read outside or by the pool. I saw this book in the charity shop for about £1 so thought I’d like to try and read it again since it was towards charity anyway.
From Tesco, which I have to say often have an awesome selection of books often on a 2 for £7 deal, had Dawn French’s According to Yes [LINK]. I heard about this book when it was launched and wasn’t sure of French’s writing style and book would be right for me but I’ve already read a few pages and although it’s got an interesting plotline about a girl who is looking to move jobs to become a Nanny for a super rich family, it seems to have potential. Maybe more of a challenging plot for me but I’m looking forward to giving it a go.
And the book that I’ve already finished on my holiday, The Woman Who Met Her Match by Fiona Gibson [LINK] is a GREAT read. I did want to give this a separate review as it’s the only one I’ve read so far but this was the perfect poolside read. I read it within the week we were away and I was hooked. The book is about a woman in her forties, two kids and a lodger best friend but her first love comes back into her life and with work dramas, kids and hopeless dates, it’s an amazing little read. I could imagine this being a chick flick film as it has all the humour needed. If you like an easy read that will keep you smiling, hooked and can be relatable especially as it’s about a beauty counter too, then definitely pick this one up!
