Recent Reads


When I’m on holiday I always rekindle my love for reading books. In day to day life I’m always reading magazines, blogs and online news but I am going to make a conscious effort to pick up more books. I recently read these three whilst on holiday in Cyprus and I couldn’t recommend them enough if you’re wanting to get stuck into a good book.

The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins is a No1 best seller and is being launched as a film this October. The story line had me hooked very early on and I thought it was cleverly structured throughout. The main character in the book, Rachel, rides on the same commuter train into London each day. The train waits at the same signal every day and Rachel observes the residents in the overlooking houses wishing she had such a happy life. After she sees something shocking one day her life becomes entwined with the people she has been observing for so long. If you like phycological thrillers and plenty of twists and turns definitely give it a read.

I chose to read Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling after reading her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? and loving it. Mindy shares everything about her adult life from falling in love, friendships and work. I found this book even more funnier and witty than the first. She writes about how to look spectacular on camera and why she loves filming sex scenes. Her books are great even if you don’t particularly like her or know who she is.

I Am Malala is a book I’ve been meaning to read since it was first released. It was such an eye-opening and informative book. Malala Yousafzai is a schoolgirl from Pakistan’s swat region who stood up to the Taliban resulting in her being shot in the head. Thankfully Malala survived and is able to share her incredible story. The book not only informs you of the conditions and cultures of Pakistan, it inspires you and proves how instrumental one voice can be.

Have you read any of these books?
