Book review - One Perfect Summer.

I've shared my love for reading before. I love it even more now I have my Kindle and I don't have to cart a heavy book around, although I do miss the smell of a new book.

After finishing Fifty Shades and coming to terms with Mr Grey no longer being in my life, I went on the search for another book. It didn't take me long after searching for my favourite author -Paige Toon and discovering she had a new book out. I've raved about her reads before and how much I love them and of course this book is no exception.

I'll give a quick synopsis; The story is 'One Perfect Summer',the main character is Alice, she goes away on holiday, meets a boy Joe, you know same old..but then the worst happens and she looses the love of her life (he doesn't die or anything to dramatic!). The story then fast forwards to her new life at university, meeting new people and falling in love with Lukas. Lukas comes with complications, his family don't approve of Alice and they have what I see as a strange relationship, not really talking, etc. And Joe is always on Alice's mind.

 I'm currently 75% of the way through so I can't tell you how it ends, plus I don't want to spoil it. But this is a fast-paced, light hearted, chick-lit, that would be the perfect holiday read. I'm pretty slow at reading usually but it's only taken me a week to get this far, so in my eyes, it must be good!

Has anyone got and must-reads for me I need a new book, after I've finished this one?!

  1. I read 19 Minutes by Jodi Picoult on holiday!
    I absolutely loved it.
    It's about a teenage boy in high school who was bullied his whole life and shot people at his school. (that does not give anything away dont worry)
    I really recommend it!xx

  2. I've just read The Black Dahlia - a noir murder/thriller set in 1940s Hollywood by James Ellory which was a great book to read - keep me hooked right to the read despite the slow start.

  3. I was actually just looking for some new books to read, so thank you for this post (and the comments!)!!! xoxo

  4. the smell of a new book = the reason I can't buy a kidnle :)

    btw thanks for the review.
