Book Recommendations. Summer 2024 Edition.

Since being less present online, I have started reading more. I have collected a list of my favourite books over the last few months and here are my recommendations for summer 2024. You’re welcome to add them to your summer reading list 😉

It’s Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

It’s as funny as it is terrifying and sad. It’s written in the form of a diary by a doctor journaling his path as a junior up to the more senior positions. It has some interesting medical terms (for those loving words, me!), but overall the stories flow nicely and the language is approachable. It’s interesting to get to know some ins and outs and bests and worsts of being a medical doctor.

Lady’s Guide to Scandal by Sophie Irwin

The perfect summer read. Light, funny, gossipy and elegant. I couldn’t put the book down, was too curious to close it without turning a page to read just a bit more. I’ll need to read other books by Sophie Irwin.

The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady By Edith Holden

My copy (from the library) has drawings and hand-written journal entries. It’s a year-long journal with beautiful illustrations of trees, flowers, birds and insects. Each month has a short etymological explanation, days to note and month’s mottos, poems and the author’s nature diary. The richest months are in summer, so I recommend reading it now and getting some inspiration for long walks in nature.

What’s on your summer reading list this year? Please let me know in the comments below.
