Need an excuse to drag yourself away from your latest TV show binge? World Book Day is the perfect excuse to swap the box for a book. To make the transition even easier we’ve picked out 5 books for every type of reader (and even non-reader!)
FOR THE DREAMERS
Villa America by Liza Klaussman
Liza’s gorgeous debut Tigers in Red Weather had us dreaming of a glamorous ‘50s summer full of garden parties and murder mystery. If that’s anything to go by, we’re sure Villa America, set in amongst a very artistic set in the French Riviera, will be just as morish. Add a pool and a great swimsuit to get seriously into the spirit.
FOR THE LOVERS
The Sunlit Night by Rebecca Dinerstein
Start swooning. This might just be our book of 2015. Two young people cross paths in the middle of nowhere – literally, on a tiny island in the north Norwegian sea – after leaving their chaotic Manhattan lives and find themselves falling for each other under the never-setting sun. We devoured it in three days flat.
FOR THE THRILL SEEKERS
Weightless by Sarah Bannan
We’ve been huge fans of high school fiction since our teenage years but here’s a novel based in high school that’s more Buffy than Sweet Valley High. No, there are no vampires, but the novel set in Alabama plays out a modern mystery that mixes up the dark side of social media with today’s youth culture. Un-put-down-able.
FOR THE NON-READERS
My New Roots by Sarah Britton
Okay, so fiction ain’t your thing, but perhaps food is? A good cookbook has the power to win over anyone. Enter Sarah Britton, the coolest foodie we know whose mouth-watering blog is a regular on our bookmark and her debut books due to hit shelves in a few short weeks. From fragrant courgette and coconut soup to chai upside-down plum cake – your stomach will be very happy with this tome. YUM. Pre-order it, here.
