Book Club 2021 so far

This is January and February’s book club as I’ve been a bit busy and haven’t read as much as I normally would! There are some absolute corkers though, some of these are so good, brilliant for lockdown reading.

Life in Pieces – Dawn O’Porter
This look at lockdown was both sad and joyful. I laughed out loud and cried a little. I love Dawn’s work and this lives up to her other books.

The Open House – Sam Carrington

This was sooo tense. Lots of suspects and some great twists. I couldn’t put this down.⁠

People Like Her – Ellery Lloyd

Another great thriller. A look at the life of a social media influencer and her ‘privileged’ life. Loved the end.⁠ 

The Other Black Girl – Zakiya Dalila Harris⁠

This is the best book I’ve read in a long time. A great thriller about the publishing industry. Chilling and captivating, I hope this book gets a huge audience as its fresh and unique. ⁠

Exciting Times – Naoise Dolan⁠

Enjoyed this. An interesting look at relationships and life living as an ex-pat. Having lived in an Asian capital city I loved this tale of life in Hong Kong. ⁠

Us Three – Ruth Jones⁠

Read this after a false start with it and loved it. Goes to show sometimes it’s not the book but the place you’re in.⁠ A great story of three childhood friends and how their lives turn out after a trip of a lifetime before going to Uni. I especially liked the Welsh references. 

The Midnight Library – Matt Haig⁠

Listened to this and it’s absolutely magical. Read by Carey Muligan who is fabulous! Loved this so much, perfect for lockdown read. 


Ghosts – Dolly Alderton 

I’m a big fan of Dolly’s. Her first book was such a great read. This, her first novel is such a great look at relationships and life. Well written and wonderfully observed charaters. 

Where to next?
