The August bank holiday weekend couldn’t come any sooner and we plan on fully relaxing throughout the three-day weekend. It’s like a salute to the end of summer so – if it doesn’t rain – we foresee a deck chair in the garden with our name on it. With a fruity beverage in hand and sunglasses atop our head, the only thing missing is a good book. Take a look at some of Littlewoods’ top reads to get absorbed in this bank holiday…
We’ve got a great selection of autobiographies for you to enjoy. Firstly, there’s Mary Berry: Recipe For Life Autobiography By Mary Berry (Paperback), which is a great choice with series five of the Great British Bake Off currently gracing our screens on BBC1. In this touching, evocative and fascinating memoir that spans nearly eighty years, it covers a life lived to the full, with a wicked sense of fun and an eye for the absurd. Alternatively you can hear from beloved comedian John Bishop in How Did All This Happen? by John Bishop (Hardback) or the wonderful Jennifer Saunders in Bonkers: My Life – Jennifer Saunders (Paperback).
Alternatively, embrace fiction in Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy. Helen Fielding – Hardback, which is the third entry in the Bridget Jones story. Or if you’re a thriller fan, Unlucky 13 (Women’s Murder Club 13) – By James Patterson (Hardback) is a great shout. The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Film Tie In (Paperback) is another option, the main character of which was portrayed by Ben Stiller in the film adaptation last year.
Would you like to start your autumn reading with a box set? We’ve got classics such as The Harry Potter 7 Book Collection by J.K. Rowling (Paperback) and A Song of Ice and Fire – A Game Of Thrones: The Story Continues: The complete box set of all 7 books by George R. R. Martin (Paperback). We don’t envy you the decision of choosing there.
