Tales of the City

Armistead Maupin

Bored secretary Mary Ann Singleton visits San Francisco on holiday and decides to stay, leaving her dull life in Cleveland behind. She finds accommodation in the home of colourful Anna Madrigal, and meets a wonderfully eclectic mix of people. Set in the late '70s, it's absorbingly easy to read and will leave you fully invested in the lives of its characters. This fabulous novel inspired me to travel to San Francisco! - Claire Harris, travel-lover, Kent

Cosmopolis

Don DeLillo

Follows an eventful day in the life of Eric, a self-made billionaire who gets stuck in traffic in the back of his limo on a journey across New York to get a haircut. He conducts his business and his life from the confined space, his bodyguards worried that he may be a target. Complex but uniquely matter-of-fact, this book will challenge you and make you think.

The Godfather

Mario Puzo

The classic novel about Don Corleone and his crime family set in New York's criminal underworld.

A Little Life

Hanya Yanagihara

A profound and beautifully-written novel about four ambitious US college friends who move to New York to begin their lives and careers after graduating. Deeply disturbing, but with an enduring human love and kindness, this book will move you in a way that none has before. Everyone should read it.

The House on Mango Street

Sandra Cisneros

A coming of age story about Esperanza, a Hispanic child in Chicago, told through a series of vignettes as she attempts to make sense of life and find her own path in a foreign world. Vividly written with Chicago as an interesting backdrop.

Summer in New York: 33 things to do in NYC in Summer

I’m a summer girl. While I enjoy NYC at Christmas, once the holiday decorations come down I’d just like to fast forward the bitterly cold months of January to March and skip to my favorite season; summer. Summer in New York is amazing. Just like summer in London, people shed their winter coats and head straight to the parks. Except, unlike London, the weather in NYC is much more reliable with hot, sunny and humid days.  Summertime is the best time to hit the city’s rooftops, explore...

The best Alabama road trip itinerary for your next adventure

With the white sand beaches, award-wining eco credentials and dolphins dipping at sunset? The rust and russet rolling peaks of the Appalachian mountains? The heartbreaking and heart-fixing stories of the...

Christmas in New York: Things to do in NYC at Christmas

My first ever trip to New York (and in fact, the U.S) was at Christmas time. I had an incredible week in The Big Apple and I can happily say New York City is the place to be at Christmas. The festive cheer is so infectious in NYC that even the biggest Scrooge couldn’t fail to get in the Christmas spirit. Ice rinks and fairy lights spring up all over the city, and the department store windows are transformed into festive works of art. Children’s’ faces beam as they stare up at the...
