Books to Read This Summer


My life has been pretty hectic this past few months with rehearsals and shows; unfortunately my love for reading had to be put on hold. But now it's the summer holidays I really look forward to a few months where I can read for enjoyment and start to read the pile of books I've set aside; as well as get on-top of my goodreads challenge. I thought I'd share with you what I will be reading this summer.

1. On The Other Side - Carrie Hope Fletcher

Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It's the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she's become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won't open.

Evie's soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it's too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love...

2. Salem Falls - Jodie Picoult

The man you love is accused of rape. It's not the first time. What would you do?

Jack St. Bride was once a beloved teacher and soccer coach at a girls' prep school - until a student's crush sparked a powder keg of accusation and robbed him of his career and reputation. Now, after a devastatingly public ordeal that left him with an eight-month jail sentence and no job, Jack resolves to pick up the pieces of his life. He takes a job washing dishes at Addie Peabody's diner and slowly starts to form a relationship with her in the quiet New England village of Salem Falls. But just when Jack thinks he has outrun his past, a quartet of teenage girls with a secret turn his world upside down once again, triggering a modern-day witch hunt in a town haunted by its own history...

3. The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins

EVERY DAY THE SAME Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

UNTIL TODAY And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

4. Always With Love - Giovanna Fletcher

The next much-anticipated romantic chapter in Billy and Sophie's love story from bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher.

Sophie's got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of. But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she's totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy's controlling mother. And when Billy extends his stay in LA, leaving Sophie to fly home to Rosefont Hill alone, it seems there's more than just miles between them. Now Sophie must decide if they can overcome their differences for good. Because not every love story lasts the distance...

5. Faceless - Alyssa B. Sheinmel 

When Maisie Winters wakes up, she's in the hospital.

The last thing she remembers is running through the hills of her neighbourhood one misty morning. Slowly, she put the pieces together. Before she could make it home, a storm gathered. Lightning hit a power line and sparks rained down, the hot-burning electrical fire consuming her. Destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks and chin used to be, now there is... nothing. 

Maisie's lucky enough to qualify for a rare medical treatment: a face transplant. At least, everyone  says she's lucky. But with someone else's features staring back at her in the mirror, Maisie looks - and feels - like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore.  Before, she knew who she was - a regular girl who ran track and got good grades, who loved her boyfriend and her best friend. Now, she can'r even recognise herself.
