I previously read and loved the author’s debut novel The Confession of Stella Moon, which was very well received. (You can read my review of that by clicking here.) The stories in this collection are of varying lengths … More What Are You Like by Shelley Day #review @pascalebientot @RedSquirrelPres #lovebooksgrouptours

Choices 13 and 14 in my Top Reads list for 2018 see me choosing a book set very close to home, right down to the main character using my local Chinese takeaway, and one set very far away.
