Summer Reading | Books For Reading Under The Sun
The summer heat is here and as we take to you sunloungers and reach for sunscreen, we find ourselves in want of a good book to delve into as we soak up sun rays. So we've curated a list of books that we think are perfect for reading under the sun.
Call Me By Your Name by Andre Achiman
Andre Aciman's acclaimed coming-of-age novel 'Call Me By Your Name' tells the story of the unexpected, spirited love that blossoms between Elio, an adolescent boy and Oliver, an American student that's a family guest for the summer. Adding to its allure is the picturesque backdrop of the Italian Riviera.
South and West: From a Notebook by Joan Didion
A collection of dialogue, observations, musings, interviews, essays and articles that chronicle her travels through Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi in 1970, Joan Didion's 'South and West: From a Notebook' will transport you into places and time that she speaks of, and into the mind of one of literature greatest minds.
The hot summer in the French Riveria serves a backdrop to Françoise Sagan's timeless novel 'Bonjour Tristesse' which tells the story of 17-year old Cecile whose life is altered when her bohemian father unexpectedly decides to remarry. A modern masterpiece, the novella is a stylised, yet raw account of youth and betrayal.
