The Invitation | Lucy Foley


Who doesn’t love a bit of 1950’s Italian Riviera glamour? Cocktails, Contessa’s and an epic love story, who knew you could fit so much into your suitcase. Travel Italy from the comfort of your sun lounger (or sofa). Best read with a large Negroni in hand – simply for the reason it’s the author’s aperitif of choice.

Where to take it? The Italian Riviera. Obviously.


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne


Pottermania is back. If only we could apparate or use floo powder to save the queues of Muggles at check-in and passport control. Holidays are all about relaxation and escapism; get lost in a magical world of wizardry with the eighth installment in the series.

Where to take it? Platform 9 3/4.


This Must Be The Place | Maggie O’Farrell


If you’re stuck at home you can still cross time zones and continents, get some tips on improving on your disappearing act from the office and some heavy relationship advice…

Where to take it? Where not to take it, that’s the question.


The Girls | Emma Kline


The “It” book of the summer with rave reviews. A coming-of-age tale with a cult twist. Make sure to pop this in your beach bag (and on your book club list) – a passport to join Evie in California, 1969.

Where to take it? Ibiza. Perfect hangover cure after a big night out.


All the Light We Cannot See | Anthony Doerr


Straight from the Auree bookshelf, an old favourite. Two characters, two perspectives, a blind French girl and a German boy, whose paths collide against the background of World War II. Winner of The Pulitzer Prize, need we say more? Read this book, whilst gazing out to sea, if you want to remind yourself how beautiful life can be.

Where to take it? On a wild and wavy beach in Brittany.
