By Emma Jane Unsworth
If you’re after something witty to make you laugh I recommend you Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth. In this book the author depicts a realistic problematic and humorous picture of our contemporary disease of social media addiction and its pressure, its pitfalls and repercussions through the life of 35 year old Jenny. Her other novel Animal which was published in 2014 and filmed in 2019 is a great fun reading as well.

I think Marian Keyes is like a racier version of Maeve Binchy. Very Irish but her Walsh stories have more bite and a more contemporary take on relationships. When you try to describe them they sound like you are dealing with very depressing topics but they are deftly handled with warmth and humour.

I usually borrow Debbie Macomber books as Audiobooks. It’s like going for a drive with a gossipy friend who knows heaps of peoples and hearing stories of what they have been up to. Her books are generally set in small communities in North America and commonly have romantic elements. I find them undemanding and relatively enjoyable. I suggest you start with the “Cedar Cove” series.

Liane Moriarty writes fun, light, domestic fiction that usually has a single event that is slowly revealed throughout the novel. Great holiday reading – Enjoy!

Jenny Colgan is the author of numerous best-selling romantic comedy novels. Her books are fun, light-hearted and escapist. Highly recommended for those who wish to escape the ‘real’ world for a while – great to listen to on the way to work.
