Summer Holiday Reading

The summer holiday are near, and are you like me , love to read. Summer holiday are all about “easy” reading .
Here are
aHousewife’s favourites reads for the summer.


The first one is Anne-Marie Selinko’s - Desireé

“Desiree by Annemarie Selinko is a biographical novel about Désirée Clary who was Napoleon Bonaparte’s first true love. In the story, readers will be highly entertained by one of the most comprehensive and detailed novels of France during the 18th and 19th centuries. The scope of this novel is amazing and follows the rags to riches life of the Bonaparte family as they gained power through out all of Europe.”


Bill Bryson’s - Walk in the Woods

“ The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America-majestic mountains, silent forests, sparkling lakes, If you’re going to thai a hike, it’s probably the place to go.
And Bill Bryson is surely the most entreating guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy ( or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way- and couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will male your long for the great outdoors ( or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).”
One of the funniest books I ever read -


Dan Brown’s - Inferno

“Seek and ye shall find”

“With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Landon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings.”


Arthur Golden’s - Memories of a Geisha

“This story is a rare and utterly engaging experience. It tells the extraordinary story of a geisha - summoning up a quarter century from 1929 to the post-war years of Japan’s dramatic history, and open a window into a half-hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation.”

“A young peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. She tells there story many years later from the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Her memoirs conjure up the perfection and the ugliness of life behind rice paper screens, where young girls learn the arts of geisha - dancing and singing , how to wind the kimono, how to walk and pour tea, and how to beguile the land’s most powerful men.”

Sarum Rutherford

Edward Rutherfurd´s Sarum

“In a novel of extraordinary richness the whole weep of British civilisation unfolds through the story of one place, Salisbury, from beyond recorded time to the present day. The landscape - as old as time itself- shapes the destinies of the five families. The Wilsons and the Shockleys, locked in a cycle of revenge and rivalry for more than 400 years. The Masons, who pour their inspired love of stone into the creation of Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. The Porters, descended from a young Roman soldier in exile. And the aristocratic Norman Godefrois, who will fall to the very bottom of the social ladder before their fortunes revive.”


Elie Wiesel - Night

This book is not light reading , but thought it should be in here, a good book their make you think about how lucky you are -

“Born into a Jewish get to in Hungary, as a cild, Elie Wiesel was sent to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald. This is his account of that atrocity : the ever -increasing horrors he endured, the loss of this family and his struggle to survive in a world that stripped him of humanity, dignity and faith, Describing in simple terms the tragic murder of a people from a survivor’s perspective,, Night is among the most personal, intimate and poignant of all accounts of the Holocaust. A compelling consideration of the rarest side of human nature and the enduring power of hope, it remains one of the most important works of the twentieth century.”

I have read all these books, except from Inferno by Dan Brown, which i just started on. I love all these books and hope you like at least one of them as well.
Happy holiday -
