"How can you love someone you don't remember?"

What a powerful book! The things we keep by Sally Hepworth is such a touching story. Although it is about a woman dealing with Alzheimer's, it is ultimately about life and love, and how the two are so utterly intertwined.

Read this book!

I LOVED this book!

The Forgotten Room is a unique literary venture as it was written by the combined efforts of Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig.

Delightfully charming debut

I'm a frequent reader of historical fiction and my favourite books in this genre tend to be set in and around the Second World War.

A great psychological thriller!

I don't read thrillers all that often but Ruth Ware's In a dark, dark wood seemed to call to me. There's just something about a psychological thriller that makes the story that much more intriguing!

A fast-paced read

Along the infinite sea is Beatriz Williams' final book in the Schuyler sisters series. When I picked this book up I was simply intrigued by the story, not knowing it was part of a series. So, having not read the previous books, I can tell you that the story has no problem standing on its own.

Great for a book club!

The Muralist by B.A. Shapiro is an inventive take on a common theme in historical fiction novels. Although the story takes place in New York on the verge of the Second World War, it is not your average war novel.

A must read!
