[Book Nook] May Reads

1-Desktop4

There are some great books coming out in May that I’m really excited for!

  1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right? (more…)

Read it! February Book Picks

There are some great books coming out from some of my favourite authors this month! Do you have any of these books on your list?

Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology: by Neil Gaiman

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki—son of a giant—blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator.

Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants.

My Not So Perfect Life: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she’s desperate to make her dad proud.

Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest. Secrets are spilled and relationships rejiggered, and as the stakes for Katie’s future get higher, she must question her own assumptions about what makes for a truly meaningful life.

[ Read it! ] Where to Go When

I love to travel. I’m constantly thinking of new places to go, and new things to see. I visit flight sale websites weekly, if not daily, and always have my next trip planned. One thing that I’m always obsessing about is, when should I go somewhere? What’s the weather like in Australia in August? When can I avoid hurricane season in the Caribbean?

In particular, I’ll be planning a honeymoon soon (yay!) and am trying to figure out what month to go. A book that’s been helping me out is the DK Eyewitness Travel Where to Go When: The World’s Best Destinations.

1-ewt-where-to-go-when-3d-hc

I can’t stress how awesome this book is. It breaks down each month and recommends the best places to travel.. Each month shares where you should go, what events are going on and a bit of history. It also has helpful information, such as should you rent a car, what will the weather be like, and how to get there.

I’m thinking about taking a honeymoon in August. The month of August starts with a suggestion of festivals, natural wonders, luxury and romance and active adventures.

Luxury and romance sounds perfect to me. The book suggests Verona, Italy, Sierra De Gredos, Spain and Mozambique, South Africa.

Mozambique sounds pretty interesting. The section suggests where to stay and an eight day itinerary. There’s also full colour photos of some popular destinations. In other words? It’s super helpful, and helps to give your trip some direction, or an idea of where to go.

It’s the perfect book to curl up with a cup of tea and daydream with, or to plan your next excursion. It would also be an amazing gift for your family and friends who always seem to be jetting off on another adventure.

Where to Go When can be found at Indigo.ca
