Book recommendations

:wave:

I have a lot of extra time on my hands at the moment and reading is doing well at filling some of that time. However, today I finished my last book in the pile so I could do with some recommendations. Recently read include Girl on the Train, Still Alice, You Belong to Me, Until You're Mine, Before You Die and the OFSTED Murders.

Really not a fan of anything based around historical drama, so they will be a no straight away :blush:

    Anything by Haruki Murakami (if you didn't do book club a few years back!)
    Ian Mcewan - Solar, On Cheshil Beach
    The Summer Book and A Winter Book by Tove Janson

    They'd be my first recommendations! Are there any genres you specifically prefer?

    Very different to what I usually read, but I read this series when I was at school and I met William Nicholson at an author talk. He was really engaging.

    The book I am most commonly recommending right now is Cheryl Strayed's Tiny Beautiful Things.

    I currently have a massive crush on her writing style... ;)
