    Me too Debbie, which is very unusual for me, I just thought the book was so well written. xx

    I also enjoyed the giver of stars. I usually find Jojo Moyes a little cheesy, although enjoyable but I loved the idea of giving children the gift of reading.
    I enjoy Adele Parks too !

    Maybe reading too late at night is stopping me joining the early riser club ! Thanks for starting the thread Linda x

    Adele Parks was recommended to me as an author. So I've borrowed 2 'Just my Luck' & 'Lies Lies Lies' about to start so not sure yet. Will let you know.
    I like anything by Kathy Reichs 'The Bone Code' is on my list.
    I also have read a lot of the Jack Reacher books by Lee Childs. I've liked them all for a bit of action.
    I like the Wolf Hall trilogy too...Hilary Mantel
    Most recently read 'Body Language' by AK Turner...which I liked as was a page turner so a quick read.

    Ellie American dirt....sounds interesting πŸ‘€πŸ‘

    My only issue is audio books make me fall asleep....like being read to as a child I guess....great for anxietyπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’‹

    Yes, I listen to an audiobook every morning whilst waiting for my carers to arrive, a lovely, luxurious way to start my day, and all borrowed from my library πŸ‘

    My favourite book so far this year is Where the Crawdads Sing, followed by American Dirt.

    Has anybody any recommendentations? xx
