So whether you’re lying by the pool with a cocktail in hand, walking the dog, cosying up on the sofa with a cup of tea, or catching up on your chores, here are our TreatBox team top reads and listens.
Jess - Corporate sales assistant
“I LOVE Harry Potter books. They take me straight back to a carefree childhood and allow me to escape everything, so they are always my go-to when I want to unwind.”
Emma - Social and dispatch assistant
“My favourite podcast right now is ‘Stuff You Should Know’, it covers the most random of topics but is always so interesting!”
Amy - Team leader
“I love reading autobiographies, anything that shares someone one's journey that is interesting or inspiring. I’m also pretty fond of reading a good children’s classic to my children; you can’t go wrong with Peter Rabbit or Roald Dahl!”
Jo - Job title
“I love anything crime-related! From books about The Krays to True Crime podcasts, I can’t get enough!”
Ellie -PR and dispatch assistant
“I’m a big fan of self-help books and love anything written by Derren Brown. They remind me that I don’t need to worry about things beyond my control - and it helps me change my mindset in situations. He also has a great sense of humour which helps with these deeper subjects!”
Jamelia - Dispatch assistant
“I’m a big fan of Anything Goes by Emma Chamberlain; it’s an honest podcast that talks about real emotions that we all experience and can relate to.”
Elsa - Social media manager
“I only ever seem to find time to read when I’m on holiday, so a good book for the pool and beach is a must. My favourite genre is mystery, and I recently read The Magpie Society series by Zoe Sugg, which I absolutely loved!”
Liberty - Dispatch assistant
“My favourite podcast is SmartLess with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett. In each episode, one of the hosts reveals his mystery celebrity guest to the other two. It's really entertaining and a good listen on long journeys."
Zoe - Founder and CEO
Read + listen
“I prefer a good non-fiction or life story book as I like to get a behind-the-scenes point of view to someone’s life that you would otherwise have no idea about. My recent favourite is the Diary of a CEO by Stephen Bartlett!”
Natalie - Head of customer service
“I recently read Health at Every Size by Linda Bacon which I loved. It’s full of facts and really makes you understand our bodies a whole lot more. I also enjoyed The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold.”
