Birdsong

Sebastian Faulks

£8.99 £8.36

I first read this when I was 18 and have re-read countless times since, with new discoveries revealed with each new reading. It is a powerful, moving novel with the horrors of WW1 and its after effects at its heart.

The Haunting of Hill House

Shirley Jackson

£9.99 £9.29

For me, this is the perfect haunted house story, written in 1959 but with a timeless quality which renders it just as chilling today.

Girl, Woman, Other: WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

Bernardine Evaristo

£8.99 £8.36

There is a reason is won the 2019 Booker prize. Poetical and lyrical, this novel follows the lives of 12 British individuals, over the course of several decades. The beauty is in its simplicity.

Sense and Sensibility

Jane Austen and Hugh Thomson

£9.99 £9.29

A classic which never fails to disappoint! Love, family, inheritance, marriage....all the ingredients for an Austen novel. Are you more sense or sensibility?!

The Book Thief

Markus Zusak

£7.99 £7.43

One of the most beautiful, imaginative, books ever written. Storytelling at its finest. A perfect lockdown read.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I have.
