5 books to take on holiday – Autumn 2018 Edition

I love finding new books to read – and believe it or not, I have not converted to [amazon_textlink asin=’B00QJDO0QC|B00QJDU3KY|B017DOUW76|B017DOV0FY|B00QJDO0QC|B00QJDO0QC|B00OQVZDJM’ text=’Kindle’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’mroarthwo-21|mrsocanada-20|mrsoaroundw0a-21|mrsoaroundw01-21|mrsoaroundw0b-21|mrsoaroundw0d-21|mrsoaroundwor-20′ marketplace=’UK|CA|DE|ES|FR|IT|US’ link_id=’a489f6b8-bf6f-11e8-88c1-c1b990bdf154′]. I know half the world has, but I love real books and more often than not, I just leave them behind when I travel, so others can enjoy the book too.

I have been asked countless times what I am reading – and before you get excited, I like simple beach reads most times. Easy, not too complex – the equivalent of a rom com.

Here are my 5 books to take on holiday – Autumn 2018 Edition (obviously all available as e-books)

    I’ve read all of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy and love them – perfect beach read. I also read This Is Going To Hurt on my holiday last week and it’s a great if enlightening read. I shall check out the rest of your recommendations for my next chilled weekend.
