The Easter Bank Holiday weekend is one of the best times of the year. The weather is getting warm enough to ditch your coats, beer gardens are open early, and it is generally accepted that chocolate will be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Among all of the egg hunts, family lunches, and excessive drinking it is also a great time to pause and actually relax. Nothing screams chilled weekend to me like sitting on the sofa with a good book and cup of tea. So, here are the five best books to read over a long weekend.
If you are anything like me finding times to actually get lost in a book are few and far between so having two extra days makes a world of difference. The thought of curling up in the garden (because I am praying for summer weather), with a blanket, half an Easter egg, and awesome book brings me unbridled joy. Whether you are looking for a really good story or a tale that will teach you something new these five books will have you engrossed all weekend and leave you ready to go back to work next week refreshed and well rested.
