What I Read on Holiday

I declined use of my mum's kindle on holiday instead taking a selection of library books with me - a brave step as usually I would read the books and then leave them behind but thinking it made as much sense as "buying" books online - sadly Ryanairs excess baggage charges didn't make this as thrifty a decision as I'd hoped and I had weighty hand luggage on the return journey to keep my case light in kilos! Note to self - take the kindle next time!!

In any case I managed to get through 2 books during the week using each chapter as my note to turn on the sunbed - yes I used the rotisserie chicken tanning method!

The books of choice were; A Perfect Proposal by Katie Fforde which was an easy read and perfect for dipping into when not the pool but I found it a bit far fetched in places, her journey made too easy and the ending simple and obvious and Fame by Tilly Bagshawe. I read this in about 2 days and loved it. I've read Tilly's other books and she's a Jackie Collins of the new generation and if you're a fan of the Khardashian types and E! tv shows you'll be a fan of her books I'm sure

And started on the plane was Lethal Seduction by the original Jackie Collins and it'll be my book of choice to keep me on the train to work today!

Pin It Now!


  1. I loved KF first book Living Dangerously. Then the next few were good but then they became very formulaic and predictable. I am still drawn to them though just in case!

  8. Although I am a lover of books, I think the Kindle will always win when it comes to holiday luggage.
