Happy Sunday Bibliofriends!
I initially thought week’s prompt was going to be a difficult one for me in some ways – most of the books I read take place in fictional lands rather than Planet Earth so I really thought my selection was going to be quite slim; however, browsing my Goodreads shelf it turns out that there were quite a few choices set in ‘real-world’ warm places. Here are a few of my favourites with a couple of fictional ones thrown in too! ☺️
For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot. July’s theme is ‘Sounds of Summer’ which I am living for at the minute – bring it on!
