The Longest Holiday Book Review

The Longest Holiday is written by British author Paige Toon. I had never come across this author before but this book popped up on my Amazon store as it was available to download for free so I thought why the heck not? It turns out I’m glad I did download it because I was hooked from day one.

Laura is the main character who discovers an awful secret which means she needs to escape. I connected with Laura, I thought she was a well thought out character and you instantly sympathise with her. In a way, I wanted a friend like Laura because she’s interesting. The way it was written made me want to be there for her and embark on her next adventure to America with Marty and Bridget.

There were parts of the book where I got frustrated with Laura because I wanted her to make up with Matthew and for it to be all hunky-dory. I was rooting for her to go back to England and forget everything ever happened but that didn’t happen at all.

Whilst Laura is in America, she meets a man called Leo. Now Leo in my mind is quite a good-looking fellow and I want to see him on film just to say ‘holy moly’ ha. I don’t know why I became obsessed with Laura and Leo but I needed to know more so I kept on reading whenever I had the chance.

As I always say, I will NOT give away any clues as to what happens in this book because I want you to support the author and go buy their book. I just want you to know that the twist towards the end will shock you, well it shocked me. It made me carry on reading until the end, I couldn’t put it down!!

For me I give this book five stars and I am really looking forward to reading more from Paige Toon.

Recommended Kindle books please

Since being made redundant I have turned into a gigantic bookworm again. This is great for me because I’m getting lost in books and I love it! However, I have two weeks left in France (I am so sad that I’m leaving) and I am looking for Kindle book recommendations.

I was able to borrow The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold from the local library in Sierentz but they only have about 10 English books so I need some digital books to read. I’m nearly half way through this book and I love the detail of the characters, situations and basically the whole story so far, it is an incredible book to read.

My list that I have read since August minus the kids books:

1) The Sound by Sarah Alderson
2) The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon
3) The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
4) Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey (only just started)
5) The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold (currently reading)
6) I Hate That You Bloody Left Me by Heather Hill

From 15th October for 5 days, I Hate That You Bloody Left Me by Heather Hill will be free to download. Make sure you click the link above to download it, it is currently £1.99 and a great spend!

So if you have something you’ve seen on the Amazon store or that you have on your Kindle, please comment below and I’ll check them out! If you’re an author and would like me to read your book and review it, there is a contact form in my ‘About Me’ section.

Get spamming with some fantastic books  🙂
