The perfect holiday reads


There's nothing quite like chilling by the pool on holiday with a good book. I can easily get through three books when I go on holiday because I always go for the light hearted chick-lit type and end up not being able to put them down.I love chick-lit books as they're really easy to pick up and put down, I wouldn't want a confusing, deep story to read while relaxing on holiday, especially ones with story lines that are quite dark and sad! These are a few of the best books I've taken on holiday with me in the past, The Wish List is definitely up there with one of my favourite books!

Lauren Conrad LA Candy series-
The girl we all envy for her beautiful hair, wisdom-filled one liners and miss watching on The Hills has proved that she really can do no wrong. I read her first fiction series LA Candy- which consists of three books, all based on a reality show, that's very similar to The Hills. It's not based on her own life, but it is full of drama and is a really enjoyable read. LC's second fiction series, The Fame Game, which is a spin off from the first, featuring a few of the characters is equally as good for a easy chick-lit read, that you will not be able to put down! I have the The Fame Game series on my kindle, but the covers of the LA Candy books are just so pretty.

Lindsey Kelk, I heart series-
I don't think I've ever read a book series so quickly in my entire life. I think I read the entire series in the space of a three weeks- there's five books, as well as a Christmas edition. I think this is the best chick lit series I've ever read. The main character, Angela is just so likeable and hilarious, I really could not put any of these books down! The series revolves around Angela's journey after she escapes from London to New York after finding out her fiancé has been cheating on her- it's full of drama, laughs, ups and downs and it is just so so good. If you're a chick-lit reader, you have to read this series! The first book in the series is I Heart New York, make sure you google the order as my mum got confused and ended up reading them so muddled up as they're not numbered haha.

'The Wish List' by Jane Costello-
I read this on my last holiday and it is so good! Another chick-lit book, if you haven't already guessed this is my favourite kind of holiday read! The story revolves around the main character, Emma as she is approaching her 30th birthday and wants to be able to tick off everything she wrote on her wishlist that she made when she was just 15. It's so funny I think I actually had some funny looks as I was laughing out loud in public a few times- embarrassing!

'I've Got Your Number' by Sophie Kinsella-
Sophie Kinsella is known for writing The Confessions of a Shopaholic series, which I haven't actually read yet but my mum loves it. My mum gave this book to me after she read it on her holiday and she also really enjoyed it. I think that Sophie Kinsella is really good at creating characters that are equally interesting and entertaining but also relatable to the readers. This is again, very light hearted but has a good story line and is really funny at times.

I hope this has given you some ideas if you're looking for some new holiday reading material, or if you're just a chick-lit lover like me. I haven't got that many books to take with me on holiday on Sunday, so some recommendations would be much appreciated! What light hearted, chick-lit reads do you like?
