Kama Sutra. Sorry, couldn’t resist!

It does all depend on what you like. One of my favourites is The Time Traveller’s Wife.

I highly highly recommend The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. Hands down one of the best books I’ve read. Darling Husband loved it as well (We listened to it as an audiobook during a road trip.) It’s going to be a movie at some point and I’m SO excited!

I really loved “All The Light We Cannot See”, historical fiction.

“The Sun is Also a Star” is a fast YA read that might be good on a honeymoon.

Also “I Let you Go” is more of a mystery/thriler that I actually really enjoyed and it was a fast read.

Always enjoy talking books and food 😀

If you like scary: Duma Key and Bag of Bones by Stephen King, his newest just out, Sleeping Beauties

If you like mystery: The Secret Place or Broken Harbour by Tana French (anything by Tana French!) anything by K.L. Slater. 

Not sure which category I’d put this in but one of my all-time favourite writers is T. Greenwood, especially recommend The Hungry Season and Bodies of Water, ditto anything by Amy Tan

Literary, a little heavy for beach reading but just in case you like literary: Tess of the D’Urbervilles or Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

christina82 :  I really loved “All The Light We Cannot See”, historical fiction.

I received this as a gift last Christmas, beautifully written book. 

I also liked “I Let You Go”, I’ve really been enjoying mysteries/suspense novels lately.

pivot :  lol I can’t see your username without hearing Ross yelling ‘pivot’ 🙂 My daughter and I put this to good use while my now-DH was helping us move into his house, lol he prob thought we were crazy

It’s not true crime, it falls under mystery/crime fiction, but I’d definitely recommend Tana French then. Her books all take place on the Murder Squad in Ireland and each book is written in the first person of a different detective, both male and female. Her books are incredibly well written and it’s interesting to see the some of the same characters in one book being the central 1st person character and in another a supporting character in the 3rd person with another detectives P.O.V. of them.
