Book Haul | Spring reads

To ease the pain of my horribly long commute to work, I've really had time to get stuck into some good books. Having got fed up of my kindle, my love for real print and pages spurred on my recent book splurge. I'm so excited by new books, spending hours in bookshops browsing the shelves is one of my favourite past times, but lets face it, Amazon is just a lot more convenient.

Room by Emma Donoghue is a haunting tale of child abduction, abuse and a powerful instinct for survival. Room is beautifully written and explores some very chilling scenarios of captivity and the determination of a mother's love for her child. It was one of those books where I just couldn't stop, I was sucked into the plight and situation of mother and child. Definitely a key read for a mature reader.
The Thread is the second book I've read by Victoria Hislop. Having read and really enjoyed The Island as a teenager, I thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck into The Thread. The Thread is a melodically paced love story of Thessaloniki, Greece, and the people who enriched it's history. Detailing events from exile, immigrants, world wars and political unrest, The Thread weaves you through the rich tapestry which moulded Greece into the country it is today. A lovely book, a perfect pick for lazy summer days.
The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty is a new popular release this spring, I've yet to get stuck into the story line, but as the juicy story lines unfold, I'm already excited about this book.
Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close is blurbed as a truly girly book, following the lives, losses and loves of 20something women. I can see that this will be the perfect beach read - if I ever get round to booking a summer holiday.
