Hello, Just finished Cleopatra and Frankenstein. Interested to hear about what books you’re all reading at the moment. x Vicky
I’ve just read Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin – and next on my list is Cursed Bread by Sophie MacKintosh:
I’m reading The Herd which has me gripped
I’ve just started Animal by Lisa Taddeo and I’m already rushing through to find out what happens! Just keep in mind the main character is very dislikable haha
I love an easy read and have just finished The Family Remains a sequel to the Family Upstairs. Can’t recommend enough if you want something to bash through but also zone out to! x
I love a thriller but at the moment am having a light-hearted break with The No-Show by Beth O’Leary (author of The Flatshare, which was a favourite holiday read) x
Currently reading The Harpy by Megan Hunter. I am not sure if I would recommend it to be honest as it’s quite dark. I have just finished reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, which was captivating. It has quite dark elements too but it has such depth. Have also heard that it has been adapted into a fantastic play held at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London!
Just finished ‘Lessons in Chemistry’ by Bonnie Garmus - a top recommend by one of my retreaters. I’m generally a slow reader however, I couldn’t put this down but also didn’t want to finish it either. Great female character / role model, three cheers to the Elizabeth Zott’s of the world - loved it. Order here to support local bookshops: https://uk.bookshop.org
Thank you! Im half way through already!
Thank you, on my wishlist.
Thank you! Yes, being an independent retailer myself, I will always support local where I can. Lucky to have an award winning independant local bookshop right here where I live in Sevenoaks. x
Still a few little independent book shops around thank goodness - long may they stay x
Currently reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt which the wonderful @heathersteele lent to me! It’s fantastic, pacy and intelligent. It’s not new but definitely a classic - can’t believe it’s taken me this long to read it x
I loved Lessons in Chemistry too. Didn’t want to finish it!
I LOVED this aswell, such a fab book x
I’m a few chapters into Exciting Times by Naoise Dolan and loving it so far
one of my faves!!!
I’ve just finished Ariadne by Jennifer Saint and I’m on a bit of a Greek kick so I’ve just started The Silence Of The Girls by Pat Barker which was shortlisted for the Man Booker a couple of years ago. Ariadne was a great easy read and I should probably add a trigger warning to SOTG as it’s quite violent from the off - although the sophistication in the writing is far sharper. I’m looking forward to reading Elektra and Atalanta by Jennifer Saint later this year.
