One thing I’m looking forward to on my trip to Morocco is reading. Since starting my new job and working harder on my blog, my reading has sort of took a back step. I’ve also been making good use of Netflix’s download option for some of it’s content (IT’S SO GOOD!). I really love reading and I can wholly guarantee that I’ll read both of these books within the week of being away. When there’s nothing else to do on holiday than eat, drink and swim – reading is my number one pleasure.
I decided to pick out these two books mainly because of their covers. I’m always attracted to interesting book covers and the title and cover art normally draws me towards a book in the first instance.
The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
Not one to shy away from a thriller, this one looked right up my street. Described on the book cover by The Sun as an ‘Agatha Christie meets The Girl On The Train‘, this sounds like such a good read. The blurb – a travel journalist on a press trip to the Northern Lights, is woken in the night by screams and sees a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin and no passengers are missing from the boat. Lo has to face the fact that she may have made a mistake – either that or she could be trapped on board with a murderer. OMFG this sounds amazing. I think this will definitely be the first book I read whilst on my holiday.
Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg
It’s a tragedy that sadly has happened in reality recently. A woman’s house goes up in flames, engulfing her entire family. June Reid finds herself in a motel room by the ocean, hundreds of miles from home, held captive by her memories and the mistakes she made with her only child Lolly and her partner Luke. Slowly, everyone touched by the tragedy finds themselves as hidden secrets finally come to light. This sounds like a pretty intense read but stories like this I find, really put life into perspective.
