What a Peach! if she would be interested in doing a guest post for you all and she gladly agreed. So here she is!
Hi! I’m Kit and I blog over at What a Peach! I was thrilled when Kayleigh asked me to write a little guest post as I love The Gotta Have It Girl. I often post about the piles of books I have waiting to be read, but realized I never really talk about books I have read in the past. So I thought for this guest appearance, I’d talk about a pile of fun, light reads that are excellent for the summer or just when you fancy a simple ‘boy meets girl...and we all know what happens next’ sort of read! I’m American but have lived in England for12 years now, so I thought it might be fun to focus on books that have some link to England or Ireland too.
You might recognize Sophie Kinsella’s name because of her Shopoholic series (they made one of them into a film) but I’m recommending Remember Me. Lexi wakes up in hospital thinking she’s twenty-five, a bit hopeless and single. Instead, it turns out she’s three years older, is married and a super successful career woman. As she tries to fit in to her new life, she realises that all is not as it seems.
I’ve enjoyed all of Melissa Nathan’s books but sadly there are only a few as she passed away not long after she began writing full time. Acting Up is her first book, but I would say my favourite is The Learning Curve.
Savannah Breeze is the only book on my list that doesn’t have anything to do with the UK (as far as I can remember!). But I thought it was fun as I love the idea of opening up a little B&B and the main character suddenly finds herself in charge of a ramshackle hotel!
David Nicholls wrote the popular One Day but Starter for Ten was his debut novel and is fantastic! It’s about a young man’s journey to get on the university’s quiz team, try to get the girl and his constant attempts at being cool. If you enjoyed One Day, you’ll enjoy this too- this is my top recommendation!
I love Marian Keyes’ books because they’re easy, fast, funny reads for a lazy weekend. All the ones I’ve read take place in Ireland, which makes for a nice change too. Further Under the Duvet is her second collection of laugh out loud essays on fashion, travel, friends and more.
Cecelia Ahern’s debut novel P.S. I Love You was adapted into a film but I’ve never managed to make myself watch it or read it as I think I’d just sob like an idiot, but I loved If You Could See Me Now- it’s quirky and sweet.
Well, that’s my round up; I’ve tried to keep it brief so I wouldn’t overstay my welcome! Many thanks again to Kayleigh for letting me blab away for a bit!
A huge thanks to Kit for her sweet post and hope she does more for us soon! I also hope you all go show her some love over on her lovely blog! Have a good Thursday! xoxo, Kayleigh.
