Bath & Bubbles Self Care

5 Books To Read In The Bath

There is nothing better than relaxing in the bath with a good book in hand, escaping the current world and diving into another. Here are 5 books we recommend for that relaxing bathtime, available over at Brew and Book:

A Good Time To Be A Girl – Helena Morrissey

‘How do you go from assistant to CEO? Why do companies with a varied workforce perform better? What does ‘having it all’ really mean? Tackling the big questions about modern careers, A Good Time To Be A Girl is a guide for new ways of working, living, loving and raising families.’

Fabulous – Lucy Hughes-Hallett

‘It’s in the nature of myth to be infinitely adaptable. Tales told in ancient Greece, or buried in our folklore, don’t just die: they reincarnate. They find new lives to inhabit in the stories of a people-trafficking gangmaster and a prostitute, of a saxophone-playing pest-controller and a cocksure estate agent, of a librarian so well-behaved that her parents wonder anxiously whether she’ll ever find love. The ancients invented these myths to explore what they didn’t understand, and in their new forms they remain as illuminating. These witty fables, elegantly written and full of sharp-eyed observation of modern life, are visionary explorations of potent mysteries and strange passions, charged with the hallucinatory beauty and horror of their originals.’

Happiness For Beginners – Carole Matthews

‘Molly Baker is living her best life. Thirty-eight years old, she lives at Hope Farm in Buckinghamshire, surrounded by (mostly) four-legged friends and rolling hills. There’s Anthony the anti-social sheep, Tina Turner the alpaca with an attitude, and the definitely-not-miniture pig, Teacup. Molly runs the farm as an alternative school for kids who haven’t thrived in mainstream education. So when the well-groomed Shelby Dacre turns up at Hope Farm asking to enrol his son Lucas, Molly isn’t fazed. But she soon realises that Lucas might be more of a handful than she anticipated plus his dad is distractingly handsome. Could letting Lucas and Shelby in be a terrible mistake, or the start of something wonderful?

Every Colour Of You – Amelia Mandeville

‘Zoe lives every day to the full. Tristan can only see reasons to stop living … Zoe and Tristan couldn’t be more different – which is precisely why, when they meet in a hospital waiting room, Zoe becomes determined to get to know Tristan better. But Tristan is struggling with a sadness no one seems to understand, least of all himself. Giving up isn’t Zoe’s nature, and as the two spend more time together, it seems like Tristan might be coming around to seeing the world the way she does. Until, one day, everything changes – and in trying to put Tristan back together, Zoe finds herself falling apart … ‘

All She Wants – Jonathan Harvey

‘There are some things in life you can always rely on. Living in the shadow of your ‘perfect’ brother Joey, getting the flu over Christmas, and your mother showing you up in the supermarket. Then there are some things you really don’t count on happening: a good dose of fame, getting completely trashed at an awards ceremony, and catching your fella doing something unmentionable on your wedding day.’
