Top 5 Paperbacks To Read Over Summer

Well the summer holiday season is in full swing and if you are yet to get away from it all and are finalising what to take in terms of reading material, the team here at Conti@Home have put our heads together and come up with a list of our personal favourites we think you are sure to enjoy! And giving due consideration to weight and size for when you come to packing - all are available as paperbacks!

A Man Called Ove

Fredrik Backman’s debut novel was a No. 1 bestseller in Scandinavia and is a warm, funny and moving tale about Ove – a very grumpy man, who thinks himself surrounded by idiots. He is astonishingly rude to everyone he meets, but in the end there is something quite irresistible about him and the story shows how kindness, love and ultimately happiness can be found in the most unlikely places.

Making It Up As I Go Along

If you want a good ‘laugh out loud’ book – this is one for you. It’s a collection of hilarious short stories, observations and flights of fancy by Marian Keyes about the absurdity of modern life, love and more, and will – we are sure – keep you giggling long after you’ve put it down!

Apple Tree Yard

Don’t worry if you’ve already seen the TV drama series of Apple Tree Yard – adapted from the bestselling novel by Louise Doughty - the book is a brilliant read! A psychological thriller about obsession and betrayal, Apple Tree Yard shows how one bad decision can change the course of your life forever. With its twists and turns you won’t be able to put it down!

The Little Paris Bookshop

This international bestseller by Nina George is a delightful, bittersweet tale of the distance one man – Jean Perdu who runs a bookshop on a barge on the Seine – will travel for the sake of love and friendship. He sets off on his voyage for Provence in search of the love of his life and the journey he takes provides an enchanting and uplifting read! A novel about love and books…what could be better!

Nomad

Not the Alan Partridge book, nor the cookbook, but the debut spy thriller from the science fiction author James Swallow. Fast-paced with a gripping plot and great characters, the book tells the tale of a solitary hero on the run. The narrative is enthralling and the reader is kept guessing right up to the end! A perfect read for anyone who is a fan of the novels of Lee Child, Frederick Forsyth or Chris Ryan!   

At Conti@Home we understand that as someone, who likes to read you probably like to have your books around you and so need plenty of storage space to keep them neat and tidy. We have a whole range of bookcases available in various sizes and delicious colours that would suit any space. Or you might want to create your own purpose built storage solution if you have an awkward shape to fill – using ContiBoard we have plenty of ideas to inspire you and to help you with any DIY challenges.
