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
