WHEN SEPTEMBER COMES ...
... 3 BRIGHT IDEAS
Lucy Jago draws us into the rich tapestry of the Jacobean Court in this gripping story of two women trying to better themselves in this unashamedly man’s world.
‘The Keeper of Lost Things’ by Ruth Hogan was voted a ‘feel good novel’ of the year in 2017 and is definitely a timely Missed Opportunity choice for book clubbers right now. This debut novel is a touching, nostalgic and a delightful easy read choice in book clubs. The book we sometimes all need to reach for!
As summer departs September always feels like a fresh start and chance to recap and catch up, so welcome back!
The Reading Den has been busy reading over the summer and has picked 3 contrasting and enticing Bright Ideas for you and your book club. For paperback fans, our Book of the Moment is The Testaments, a much loved and deservedly hyped novel of 2019 by Margaret Atwood which is out in this format from 1st September - hooray! For those who missed out on their Spanish break we discovered Berta Isla by Javier Marías, a beautifully observed story of love which starts and is rooted in Spain. Our Wild Card choice is Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami, a collection of imaginative short stories by this well regarded Japanese writer. We may have missed the Olympics but this is a great slice of Japanese life.
