Working in the fashion industry requires quite a lot of creativity, regardless of which role you’re in. What better way to find inspiration than by immersing ourselves in books! From cheesy romcoms to murder mysterys and self-help books, the team at Apéro are hooked on it all. To celebrate National Bookweek, we’ve listed our top picks so you can add them to your TBR! 

Sarah L - On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
I’ve only just started getting back into reading and whilst I do love a good romcom book, I thought I would pick this one up for some variety. A brutally honest book about family, war, and poverty; the author writes letters to his mum who can’t read. So much of this book feels almost poetic in nature.

Sarah R - The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley
Inbetween binging season two of Only Murders in the Building, I have immersed myself in this murder mystery fiction. Set in Paris, the novel is filled with twists, secret lovers, lonely wives and secrets at every turn. The Paris Apartment is one book I haven't been able to put down!

Rachel - Verity by Colleen Hoover
I have recently jumped on the Colleen Hoover bandwagon and Verity is by far my favourite. Filled with plot twists, jump scares, mystery and romance - this is one of those books you can’t put down. Seriously, I’ve never been so invested into how a story plays out. You need to read this! 

Sam - The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
I picked up this book because I thought it would change my mindset and help me do inner work and healing. It really helped open my eyes about how I should see the world, react to problems that arise, and handle situations better. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking to unlock your full potential. 

Gabby - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid 
If you haven’t seen this book all over tiktok what are you doing? I decided to pick up my own copy and it definitely lives up to the hype. The Old Hollywood glamour is what reels you in but the brutal honesty and flaws of the character make you stay. Calling it a page turner would be an understatement. 

Anna - Educated by Tara Westover
This is the book that got me back into reading! An empowering memoir about a girl who grew up in a morman family and overcame unfairly struggles, this book isn’t for the faint hearted. This book was an emotional rollercoaster with no end in sight. 

Mykayla - Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King 
This self-help book is all about teaching you about manifesting and how to  raise your vibrations to achieve greatness. It provides scientific explanations but makes it easily digestible for the everyday person to understand. If you’re interested in self-improvement books you need to add this to your collection!
