My Top 5 Beach Reads

If you're anything like me, it takes a certain type of book to qualify as a holiday read. I opt for nothing too heavy, but still stimulating enough to be a real page turner, so here's a run down of my top 5 (no particular order!) The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry- Rachel Joyce I … Continue reading My Top 5 Beach Reads
