Essential Summer Reads

Be sure to grab these page turners before you head off on your summer holidays!

The Great Gatsby

Yes this is a classic, and yes you may have read it in high school. Regardless it’s worth another read. With Baz Luhrmann turning the book into a film, next year will be all about The Great Gatsby. Trust me it will seep into fashion, jewellery and homewares just like the Sex And The City movie (the 1st one, anyway). Refresh your memory and enjoy the combination of the Roaring Twenties setting, the scandal and the themes of love and greed. There’s a reason this book is a classic.

April & Oliver

Tess Callaghan’s debut novel is a beautifully written story about two childhood best friends who are reunited as adults after the death of April’s brother. This character-driven novel whilst often quite dark, dealing with lies, family secrets, love and grief, is a completely engrossing read.

The Next Best Thing

Jennifer Weiner’s story of Ruth, a shy TV writer who lives in Los Angeles and is trying to make it in Hollywood, is hugely entertaining. Plenty of laugh out loud moments and relatable characters.

Chasing Harry Winston

The author of ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, Lauren Weisberger is back, with a story about 3 friends who vow to change their lives drastically within a year. A fun book that provides a perfect summer escape.

Catching Fire

The second book in the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, a young woman from the futuristic nation of Panem. Can’t wait for the movie!
