Re: What book are you reading now?

I just finished The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory I really enjoyed it but have to admit I have read most of her novels. What a baitch Elizabeth 1st was

Also just read The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. Continuing Stieg Larsson's Millennium Series by David Lagercrantz, I enjoyed it but not as much as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Re: What book are you reading now?

A little different, but I've bought Bruce Dickinson's autobiography to read over Christmas.
Dickinson is the lead vocalist with rock band Iron Maiden. He is also a qualified jumbo jet pilot, semi-professional fencer, childrens book author and has beaten cancer twice.
Should be an excellent read.

Having said that, monarchs couldn't afford to be compassionate and cuddly, so I've no doubt none of them would win any popularity contests.

Brilliant writing as always from this woman.
The theme of white supremacy and rampant racism in the US.
Very sensitively handled, a real eye opener.
Just getting to the courtroom drama now, I'm heading for some late nights!
It's sounds good usually after a Jodi Picoult one feels like ending it all

No no no!!

Intense as always, and shocking too, but a great read, and don't expect the ending as it's a real surprise!

But it does make you understand how and why youngsters become so easily radicalised.

I confess there were some chapters I skip read (can't believe I'm admitting to such a crime!!) because I wanted to get into the courtroom drama!

Re: What book are you reading now?

I am reading "The Hundred Year Old Man who climbed out of a Window and escaped" by Jonas Jonasson. A humorous story which is just what the title says. A good bit of light reading, for a change.

Re: What book are you reading now?

If you go for thrilling page turners then this isn't for you...
But if you love a book that is beautifully written and draws you in so that you feel you're sinking into a warm bath...

It's about everyday life in a village when a young girl goes missing...but as the days and seasons and years go by you're so immersed in the lives of the villagers and almost forget the original tragedy.

A really incredible piece of writing.

Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor, winner of the 2017 Costa Novel Award.

Re: What book are you reading now?

Just finished reading Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough and was completely taken by surprise by the amazing ending. It wouldn't be for everyone as it's a thriller that has elements of the paranormal but that ending had the best twist I've ever come across. If you're a fan of Stephen King you'd probably enjoy this book.
