I'm an avid reader and there is absolutely nothing I love more than sitting down to a cup of tea and a good book.

While I was on my honeymoon I devoured a tonne of books, and thought I'd give you a quick recap of my favourite ones below.

White Girl Problems by Babe Walker - slightly trashy, yet very easy to read book about fictional character Babe Walker - a rich, spoilt, twenty-something socialite with more money to burn than sense! This is a perfect holiday book, it's actually quite witty and entertaining and you can't help but fall in love with the potty-mouthed, self-important Babe!

Room by Emma Donoghue - a beautiful yet extremely sad tale about a mother and her fierce love for her son, told through the eyes of her son. This book is a definite tearjerker and will have you feeling ALL the feels. I've heard the movie (which won an Oscar) is nearly as good as the book so I will have to watch that soon and let you know my thoughts.

Troublemaker by Leah Remini - a very honest account of Leah's time living as a Scientologist. I loved this book because it was so real and revealed a lot about the cult-like religion of Scientology. Although I've always liked Leah as an actress, this book made me like her so much more as a person too, and really gave good insight into what it was like dealing with some of Scientology's most famous celebs including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. A must read for anyone who has ever wondered what Scientology actually is.

The Gods of Guilt by Michael Connelly - everyone knows that Michael Connelly is my favourite author - his books never disappoint. This book focuses on Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller and how his world is turned upside down after a former client appears dead and he realises he could have been the one who made it happen.

All available for purchase at Booktopia or Book Depository.

Have you read any good books lately?
