Four books you think everyone should read and why
This book blew me away, emotive and beautifully written, it has so many elements that made it such a special read, characters, settings, the attention to detail, the workings of the foster system all make this book something extra special.
I found this book heartbreaking to read it’s a book that highlights domestic abuse and explores issues surrounding a subject that is shrouded in secrecy and fear. Michael J Malone’s writing is incredible its a book that is both profound and insightful and brings a very little talked about subject into the open. I cried over this book and it’s one that’s stayed with me.
I loved this book, for some reason I’m always attracted to books about serial killers and this serial killer is like no other. It gives the reader a glimpse into the mind of a sinister psychopath which made for a chilling read. A fabulous debut from a very talented author
I’m a huge fan of this author and she never fails to deliver. Frailty is both Disturbing and compelling. Eight year old Hope Bird disappears without trace, and what follows is every parents worst nightmare, Betsy Reavley takes the reader on a painful journey alongside the devastated parents and it makes for a gripping read.
Four of your favourite children’s books
I loved my Ladybird books especially the well loved tales series I use to read them time and time again and years later I read them to my son. Every time I see a Ladybird cover I get all nostalgic.
The Famous five series by Enid Blyton. I always dreamt about being one of the famous five all those adventures I so wanted to be part of.
Bunty annual I loved getting this annual every Christmas without fail They were mainly comic strips, three to five pages long I would read them cover to cover again and again.
Black Beauty I had an obsession with horses so I loved this book, i couldn’t wait to grow up and buy a horse and Black Beauty fuelled my obsession with all things horses.
