How many have you read?
Something to Live for, Richard Roper
Quirky and life-affirming, if you liked The Rosie Project, you’ll love this.
The Life of Death by Lucy Booth
A beautiful, thought-provoking novel, written while the author was dying, and published posthumously.
The River by Peter Heller
A beautiful, heartrending exploration of male friendship.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Original, funny, and touching. I loved it.
The Book of Love by Fionnuala Kearney
A beautiful exploration of falling – and staying – in love.
To the Lions by Holly Watt
A shocking, high-octane thriller with compelling characters.
Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh
Brilliantly written crime novel with a killer premise. This is a belter of a book.
Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan
The best courtroom drama I’ve read since Apple Tree Yard.
The Dry by Jane Harper
An atmospheric novel set in the stifling heat of the Australian outback.
Fallen Angel by Chris Brookmyre
Gloriously dark and deliciously twisty. I inhaled it in a single sitting.
