Best bank holiday reading?


It's a bank holiday and the weather isn't dreadful – I think I'll celebrate by sitting in the garden with a book. 

Which book do you think would make a perfect bank holiday garden read – and why? (Feel free to mention one of your own and add an Amazon link.)





I'll start off with Firestarter. It's romantic, fun, lots of it is set outdoors and there's plenty of yummy food and drink. And there's a hunky fireman. More than one, actually.

Mac Wheeler suggested Expiring Covenant.

Frances mentioned a selection, including  Basic Theology for Fallen Women.

I failed to manage the link to my book, Basic Theology for fallen Women. Serve me right 😒 but I'd love you to read it. Please? And so as not to be too selfish, a wonderful holiday read is Heartbreaker by Nick Louth, which is riveting. Also, The Promise, by Ann Weisgarber. I've just read Orley Farm, by AnthonyTrollope, which I loved, but which at 840 pages isn't typical holiday reading!

You can never go wrong with a hunk fireman, eh? ;)

I found it, Frances! (I can't remember how to get links to show in replies either)

Patsy said...

No! Although photographers are even better (my husband sometimes reads this blog).

Patsy said...

I appreciate that, Gary.

Yes, it was decidely warm.

Frances Garrood said...

Thanks so much, Patsy.

It's always a good time to read - anywhere!

I guess your bank holiday is over now, but I've recently read "The Marsh King's Daughter" by Karen Dionne and it's fantastic! She did some book tours in the U.K. not too long ago. It's shocking in parts, because it deals with the wilds and the wilds are what they are. She and her husband lived in the wilds when they had their first child, so no doubt she has drawn a lot from her experience back then.
