Do you follow us on Goodreads? You should! We read pretty voraciously and we always post everything we’re reading!

For instance:

Judy recently read Bitter Orange and said:

This book unsettled me as there was a creeping sense of dread throughout. The ability of the author to pull me into the story of three people in a decaying British country house was amazing. It was very atmospheric and ultimately a story about guilt and penance and secrets.

Saffron loved Tilly and the Crazy Eights!

What a fun read…lots of laughter and tears. Even though there were nine main characters in the book, each was fully developed and had a great compelling story.

Dani couldn’t put The Red Address Book down!

I was kept on the edge of my seat, not just as Doris recounted her younger-self’s adventures, but also desperate to know if she would make it to the end of her story before her health failed. Would she find love? Would she ever see Jenny again?!

And Jessica highly recommends the Sun Does Shine:

An extraordinary story about the power of the human spirit. His ability to find hope and compassion among the darkest situations is incredible and a true testament to who he is as a person.
