I have been reading, though, so the time isn't completely wasted. I can recommend all these:
Night Waking by Sarah Moss (another book about a baby's bones, so I couldn't resist, with a fascinating historical thread of hidden letters.
Nora Roberts The Witness, a bit commercial for my taste and a predictable romance but an interesting lead character and a twist. Came to an abrupt end. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I hadn't been on holiday but OK.
The Mercurial Emperor by Peter Marshall - fantastic research and entertaining read.
The Stranger's Child by Alan Hollingshurst - well written, interesting but I haven't warmed to the characters yet (by page 195) so I haven't finished.
Katherine the Queen - biography of Katherine Parr which is readable and well researched. And I got it secondhand which helped!
Venice: Pure City by Peter Ackroyd, delicious detail and beautifully written.
But the best thing I saw all week was the BBC series 'Venice' by Francesco da Mosto. Delicious.
