This Month's Great Reads


Here are the books that I would recommend reading this month...

Sophie Kinsella - I've Got Your Number
-A nice, light, girly read that's perfect for your holiday. It made me laugh out loud in places :) It tells the story of Poppy, who manages to lose her priceless engagement ring (a family heirloom) and her mobile phone at the same time. While frantically stressing about trying to find her engagement ring, she finds a mobile phone in a bin. It turns out that the mobile phone is actually that of a PA's to a rich and sexy businessman, Sam, who is very professional but lacks the art of small talk and any real emotions. As Poppy needs the new phone as she's given out the number to people to ring if they find her engagement ring, she bargains with Sam to let her keep it temporarily on the condition that she will forward all his emails and texts to him. So, they end up sharing an inbox and ultimately have opinions on each other's lives....

Cecelia Ahern - The Book of Tomorrow
I'm a huge fan of all of Cecelia Ahern's books and this one is my very favourite up until now. It's a light, gripping and fun read, about a girl who finds a diary that is written by herself tomorrow (so detailing what happened today!). Such a great concept, it really makes you think about what you would do if you could change the way you live today, correcting any mistakes that you make, but then seeing your life take a different path then it was going to. Would you want to know what happens in the future? It's a great read, really different, and I couldn't put it down.

Vikas Swarup - The Accidental Apprentice
Having really enjoyed Q & A (aka Slumdog Millionaire) and Six Suspects, I was eager to get my hands on Swarup's new book. It tells the story of a woman, Sapna, who is struggling to make ends meet and support her mother and sister, who is suddenly chosen by a millionaire to be the next CEO of his company. In order to become the CEO, Sapna must pass seven tests.... I LOVED this book, it has some brilliant twists in it and keeps you guessing all the way through!

Lauren Oliver - Delirium
This book is the first of a trilogy and it tells the story of a 17 year old girl, Lena, trapped in a dystopian future society in which a cure for love has been found and administered to all citizens of the United States. The US government have indoctrinated people into believing that love is a disease. It's a gripping story and it ends on a cliffhanger- I've already bought the next one in the series and I can't wait to start it! If you liked Hunger Games I would strongly recommend this book.

Emma Donoghue - Room
This book is just so original. The first person narrator is a five year old boy who has never been outside of one room his whole life. I can't say much more because I don't want to give anything away, but once you pick up this book you will find it VERY hard to put down, it's brilliant!

Has anyone else read any of these books? What did you think? 
Is there any that you fancy reading now?
