Greece themed fiction books
Greece themed fiction books I absolutely love. As my love of Greece continues, I love to read any Greece themed fiction books set in Greece or the islands.
Most importantly, I am always looking out for new stories to read on my kindle. I always order my books from Amazon Kindle store, type in ‘Greece Fiction’ and then select a book I am interested in reading. Perfect for reading on holiday.
Kim Nash-Blogger and reviewer of all things BOOKS
My friend Kim Nash has a fantastic book blog and is far more adept than me at writing brilliant book reviews. [ on all subjects, not just Greece] Her book blog [Kim the book worm].
Besides that, she inspired me with recommendations of books such as by author Sue Watson ‘Love lies and Lemon cake’. Which then started my love affair, reading Greek themed fiction books.
Fiction becomes reality..
One year we were in Corfu and Kim was actually with author Mandy Baggot and was discussing her new book ‘Those Summer Nights’ about a story set in Corfu. She phoned and asked if we could take a photo of my kindle displaying the said book, near a Corfu landmark.
Consequently, the main picture on this page is what we took for her. Near to Vlacherna Monastery and Mouse island, both famous Corfu landmarks.
There are many Greece themed fiction books I have read since. If you do an Amazon search you will find many.
