Voucher codes for vintage holiday reading

Going on from my blog post a few weeks ago about getting the vintage summer beach look, I’m expanding the vintage beach reading theme this week by looking at some Waterstones voucher codes, The Book People voucher codes and The Hive Store voucher codes. So, what exactly do I mean when I say ‘vintage reading’? Well, this term could cover a number of themes – classic books by well-known authors, historical fiction, or it could just come down to something with a beautiful vintage-look cover. I’ve included book in all three of these areas, so take you pick from the many vintage reads on offer right now…


Waterstones voucher codes are a pretty good place to start and if you take a look, you’ll see they’ve still got their up to 30% off best-selling paperbacks deal. Of course, we’d all rather take paperbacks on holiday (as opposed to the heavy hardcovers that will add to that baggage allowance) and if you take a look at what Waterstones have on offer, you’ll find a few vintage gems, both in terms of look and content…


The Monogram MurdersThe Monogram Murders – Sophie Hannah (was £7.99, now £5.99 with Waterstones voucher codes). This brand new Hercule Poirot mystery was written to commemorate the 125th year since the birth of the Queen of Crime herself, Agatha Christie, and you can’t really get a better vintage holiday read than a new Poirot novel, right?








Resorting to MurderResorting to Murder – Martin Edwards (was £8.99, now £6.74 with Waterstones voucher codes). Talking of murder mysteries, the vintage covers of this mystery collection are surely far too beautiful to pass up.










The Paying GuestsThe Paying Guests – Sarah Waters (was £7.99, now £5.99 with Waterstones voucher codes). Use your break to catch up on this historical international bestseller.











The Book People voucher codes not only get you access to their extraordinarily good prices but also additional savings, this time in the form of 5% off your order. Once you start buying books online, this site is bound to be the top of your list due to its emphasis on cut-price collections. You can see how attractive their prices are if you take a look at some of their vintage reads…


Daughters of Mannerling Collection - 6 Books - Collection - 9781472116888 - M. C. BeatonDaughter of Mannerling Collection (6 books) – M.C. Beaton (RRP £41.94, now £6.99 – reduced to £6.64 with The Book People voucher codes). From the author of the Hamish MacBeth and Agatha Raisin books, this regency romance series is something you can seriously get your literary teeth into over that fortnight in the sun.

These mysteries set in Edwardian London deserve more attention and are a must for any fans of the genre.








With The Hive Store voucher codes you can order from a wide range of titles and choose to pick up your order from your local independent bookshop, and it’s not too often that ordering online can offer benefits to local high street retailers too. Current savings from The Hive Store include up to 30% off summer reads, including these three titles…


Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, Paperback bookYesterday, Today, Tomorrow: My Life – Sophia Loren (was £9.99, now £7.99 with The Hive Store voucher codes). An autobiography from a vintage icon? Yes, please!










The Miniaturist, Paperback bookThe Miniaturist – Jessie Burton (was £7.99, now £7.29 with The Hive Store voucher codes). This historical literary fiction title was one of last year’s bestsellers, so why not use your holiday to catch up on a must-read?
