Marrakesh and what I read…

I recently got back from an AMAZING week in Marrakech with Tom. Although I didn’t have much time to read whilst I was out there, I did get some time to enjoy a few books. 

I really wish I had taken a better camera out there as there was so many amazing things to see and do! In the end I just took pictures using my phone which unfortunately didn’t really do the surroundings justice!

Here’s some holiday snaps anyway showing some of what we did, and also what I read whilst I was out there!

What I read/ finished reading in Marrakech:

Elly Griffiths- The Ghost Fields 

This was a fairly easy read which wasn’t too taxing and which I enjoyed by the pool! Not your typical holiday read perhaps but hey, I really enjoyed it! (review here)

Lynda LaPlante- Wrongful Death

This was a book club title which I needed to finish in time for book club when I got back, and I had mixed feelings on it overall… A review will follow shortly on here, so keep an eye out for it!

Have you ever visited Marrakech or Morocco? What did you think?
