Well, it’s officially the height of summer, and I don’t know about you but I have so many fond memories of reading in this season.

When I was a child, my family would bundle everything up in our car and head to Enid Blyton country in the south of England. When I say I had idyllic holidays there, I mean it. Hiking, art galleries, cricket on the beach and ice creams on the banks of medieval castles.

Yup. Pretty great.

What made them absolutely perfect was that every morning I would wake up to glorious sunlight (okay, maybe that’s where the nostalgia seeps in…) and there would be a new book by my bed.

Every morning.

Looking back, I can see that my parents didn’t spend a bunch of money on them – and I’m glad they didn’t, because those books were dragged from soggy bench to sandy beach, all over the countryside.

Absolutely an incredible way to experience holidays, but the only problem is…I now feel like a summer isn’t a summer unless I have new books pouring out of my bookcases!

SO: this is where I turn it over to you. What is your go-to book for the summer? I need to fill my Kindle!

  1. Hi Emily I like to read Stephen King books but I need to warn you he can get bloody or scary! That’s what I like😃 I also love Nickolas Sparks. You need to read The Guardian. It’s a great story and also sad to. I hope I have helped you. I also love your books 😍
