Friday Reads - August Book Club

Aug 3, 2012

Winter is the perfect time to curl up with a blanket, a glass of red and a good book. I am a huge fan of interior books and historical fiction, and I don't mind the odd easy read romance in between. Here's whats on my reading wishlist right now... 

Lifestyle & Interiors - for armchair escapism and interior styling at its best, I can't wait for Sibella Court's new book Bowerbird to come out in November. Another favourite stylist Hans Blomquist has the most beautiful photography/styling online so I can only imagine how lovely the book The Natural Home will be (add that to the Christmas list!) A huge fan of Kinfolk Magazine's food styling, and the August issue of Country Style mag has a great feature on the South Coast - Mollymook/Milton and the lovely Little Dandelion wool rugs on the front cover! 

Romance at heart - for the Fifty Shades of Grey fans, Bared to You by Sylvia Day is apparently the next best thing on the New York Times besteller list. I am hearing through the grapevine this may perhaps be better, more romance, less kink and well written. I may have to get my hands on this to see what all the fuss is about. For the romantics among us I recently read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire - ok so I will admit it is a very 'Twilightesque' teen fiction (sans the vampires) but slightly addictive and a very easy weekend read for something in between more serious fiction. 

Historical Fiction- I have also added two books to the list that have been recommended to me recently - The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul and acclaimed author Kate Morton's the Forgotten Garden. Finally, a huge fan of historical fiction, The Book Thief is one of my all time favourites, and I will definitely read it again. A beautiful and moving book by local legend Markus Zusak. Expect tears! And last but not least I cannot wait to get my hands on Australian author, Belinda Alexandra's latest book. With a Russian theme and expected out in 2013 this is sure to be a winner! 

This should keep you busy for a while. Let me know what you loved, what you didn't and any new reads you want to recommend. 

Happy reading!
