Top 5 Tuesday – Books with a holiday

Welcome to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday post. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is now being hosted at Meeghan reads!! For details of all of the prompts for April to June see Meeghans page here.

We’re celebrating Summer and the start of the holiday season this week as we have to come up with 5 brilliant books about a holiday. I couldn’t of any to begin but a quick trawl on my shelves brought up a couple so here goes with this week’s top 5.

This was the first book that I read by Maeve Haran and I loved it. Four university friends travel to a Greek island to relive their first holiday together many years before. This is a brilliant read all about friendship and definitely made me want to be on the Island with them

This has got to be the ultimate holiday: cruising down the Nile on a luxury yacht. Sadly, you know that if Hercules Poirot is on board, then somebody probably isn’t going to live for much longer.

This isn’t quite a holiday book as Zelda has actually moved to Sicily in search of a fresh start. It has brilliant holiday vibes though with gorgeous descriptions of Sicily’s dramatic landscape and equally gorgeous Italians. Another book that makes you want to be right there.

I’ve only just finished this and it’s another holiday that doesn’t go as expected. Amory Ames travels to New York for her friend’s wedding only to find that she gets involved in a murder mystery after the best man is gunned down on the doorstep. This is a lovely glimpse into prohibition New York.

Very unseasonal I know but I loved this book about a Christmas holiday in Lapland. It has romance and a simply amazing setting. I really wanted to visit Lapland once I had finished reading it.

That’s my top 5 books about a holiday. What’s your favourite book about a holiday?
