A few titles to keep us going in these strange times

I had been waiting at least a year to read Liz Nugent’s latest book called Our Little Cruelties and it didn’t disappoint. After recommending on Instagram, I was given a plethora of titles I should read, so I said I would make a list and share with listeners, so here we are!

Included on the list are the recommendations that came in again and again (and there were a LOT of replies to this)

Firstly - SO many people recommended Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, so I downloaded onto my Kindle two nights ago and I can see why so many people have endorsed it. I am REALLY enjoying it, so thank you!

And to everyone who contributed: thank you!

 

  • Six Wicked Reasons, Jo Spain

 

  • The Whisper Man, Alex North (this came in quite a few times. I read it recently and it’s okaaay… but so many people thought it was excellent, it makes the cut!)

 

  • Dear Edward, Ann Napolitano

 

  • The Farm, Joanne Ramos (I loved this)

 

  • The Holdout, Graham Moore

 

  • The Bankers Wife, Christine Alger

 

  • The Man She Married, Alison James (loved this)

 

  • The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd

 

  • Cilkas Journey, Heather Morris

 

  • A Ladder to the Sky, John Boyne

 

  • The Book Thief, Markus Zusak

 

  • My Pear Shaped Life, Carmel Harrington (okay, this isn't out until this month but I was sent a sneaky copy last month and I am LOVING IT! I left it in work on the last day before I started working from home and I cannot wait to get my hands on it again. Funny, un-put-down-able.... we are all Greta!)

 

  • The Liar’s Daughter, Claire Allan

 

  • American Dirt, Jeanine Cummins

 

  • A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman
