Fearne's summer holiday reads19th June 2012
On holiday I love nothing more than minimal bodily movement and muchos reading.
I got through four books this last week while I was away, and let me tell you they are a mixed bunch. I started off with The Hunger Games:
I know, I know, I’m a bit behind on this one, but I LOVED it! I haven't seen the film so had no idea what it was about until I started whizzing through it. How many brilliant comparisons to the slightly mad, extremist way TV is going in our very own country! Do I see the film now? Will it ruin it for me?
Next up was The Five People You Meet In Heaven...
... a beautifully written, moving book with wonderful characters. It’s short and sweet so definitely give it a go!
Then on to one of my favourite authors - Paulo Coelho. If you haven’t read any of his books, maybe start with one of his classics like The Alchemist, and then try out Eleven Minutes, which is a great story too. The one I chose for this trip was Aleph...
... a book that opened my mind to new concepts I hadn't even thought of. I can be quite a spiritual old hippy so this one got me thinking for days after I finished it!
Then just to finish on a sordid note, I read a Jackie Collins' book - Goddess of Vengeance...
... a good romp through LA, Vegas and NYC, with raunchy characters and sin thrown in for good measure. The perfect holiday read - although it may have cancelled out the good work the Paulo book had done!
If you're off on hols run to the book shop and get any of these!
LOVE and PEACE
