It’s the first week in June and for many of you holiday season is fast approaching- and what’s better than lying on the beach with some good books? Nothing in my opinion. Get ready to load up your Amazon cart ladies, because I’ve got my pick of the best holiday reading for you to feast your eyes upon.
Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill.
O’Neill’s debut novel is set in a frightening dyostopian future where girls are not born, they’re made. Brought up in Schools, they are taught the only three options available to women: to be the perfect wife; a concubine, who will sexually service men for the duration of her life; or a chastity, who will teach the next generation of girls their roles.
The story is told through the eyes of Freida, who, now that her time at the School is at an end, is petrified of not being chosen as a companion, and is dealing with one of her only friendships is falling apart.
It’s been hailed as both a witty and unsettling story by the Daily Telegraph and I really can’t wait to get my hands on this!
Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht.
Before social media took off in a really big way in the fashion industry, there was the twitter account DKNY PR Girl, an anonymous venture that started back in 2009. Aliza Licht was the voice and brains behind the operation and now she’s created a multi-million dollar social media empire. This book chronicles her rise to fame as the enviable PR girl, as well as dishing out advice on how to rock your career. I’ll take all the advice I can get.
Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes.
Pretty Honest has been hailed as a “witty, wise and truthful beauty handbook for real women on what works in real life,” and I’m so excited to pick up a copy. Hughes offers realistic advice for the time-poor woman, drawing on 20 years of wisdom and advice. It’s both a beauty instruction manual and a love letter to makeup. I’d normally never purchase this sort of book, but this seems to be a beauty bible and I need it in my life.
