DECEMBER'S FESTIVE BRIGHT IDEAS
REBECCA'Rebecca' is a romantic gothic thriller by Daphne Du Maurier and makes a wonderful book club classic, whether it’s your first reading, a re-read or because you’ve heard about the new Netflix remake starring Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas, which we predict will be out this autumn. An ideal summer read for a staycation at home or by the sea, 'Rebecca' is a fabulous fast paced novel that will keep you on your toes! Definitely a page-turner in the Den.
MY SUNSHINE AWAYThis debut coming of age novel submerges you into Baton Rouge so gracefully that you can feel the sweltering heat, taste the southern food and feel part of this wonderfully tight-knit community.
TALKING HEADS'Talking Heads' was originally written by Alan Bennett for BBC Television in the 1980s and 1990s. Whilst it has been revamped in lockdown for TV viewers featuring two new scripts, The Reading Den is delighted to find an excuse to revisit this much-loved collection of monologues. Watching them first is the best way to appreciate this collection.
