Anything by Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsela, or Kathy Green. I also loved "The Husband's Secret" by Liane Moriarty. I also halfway through one of her other books..."big little lies". My mum & I are hooked on her at the moment. The books are addictive!
Crazy Rich Asians and then it's follow up China Rich Girlfriend are brilliant!
I have to admit that I love biographies and non-fiction more so as I'm getting older. I've recently enjoyed Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and Barbie and Ruth by Robin Gerber. Yes, I'm a nerd
Some of my favs from this year so far the Nightingale, the Loney, the light between oceans, a death in Sweden, the girl on the train, firefly lane 1 and 2.
Helen Garner's book of essays "Everywhere I Look" was great. I also really enjoyed Jonas Jonasson's first two books and have the third on my pile to be read. I'm currently reading Herman Koch's "The Dinner" and liking it so far.
Also, Magda Szubanski's autobiography "Reckoning" is one of my favourites this year.
Living Danishly. So insightful, well written and just friggin HILARIOUS 😂
So many good options!
I love Liane Moriarty books, and if i remember correctly she has a new release coming out either this month or July too! I love that she is an Australian author so it's easy to picture areas and the weather/seasons, know the lingo etc.
I've read a few different ones these past few weeks, usually i read biographies and memoirs but have been getting more so back into mysteries/thrillers/fiction i suppose.
Some easy reads i've just read are;
Wynn in Doubt by Emily Hemmer,
You Sent me a Letter, by Lucy Dawson,
The Final Piece by Maggi Myers,
The Passenger by Lisa Lutz.
Also had to succumb and read Holly Madison Down the Rabbit Hole.
I still have Michelle Knight, Finding Me to read, have been holding off as i know it will be an emotional read.
Australia's Most Murderous Prison by James Phelps wasn't a bad read, but it wasn't as "juicy" as i was thinking it would be haha. It's not what i would call a cruisy easy read though, but great to always go back to for reference.
On my have to read soon list;
The Magpies by Mark Edwards.
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain
Broken Grace by E.C Diskin
The Green Line by E.C Diskin
The Perfect Neighbours by Sarah Pekkanen and also by the same author, The Best Of Us and Catching Air.
After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman
Wilde Lake by Laura Lippman
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
Remember Me This Way by Sabine Durrant.
Still have the Tana French series to read!
That's a few ideas anyway!
