I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes: A massive and fantastic read. Confronting, well written and totally addictive. I love a good thriller and this one is superb. – Rose (Store Manager)
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell: I’m reading the bone clocks, a thriller, played out in the edges of our reality . It’s not what I normally read but I’m really enjoying it. Very complex, you really need to be paying attention or you get completely lost. – Steph
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: This is an eerie YA book that left me stunned and with an overwhelming urge to read it again straight away! Keeping the reader guessing until the last page, “We Were Liars” took me on an emotional roller-coaster! Best advice: Read it! – Carly
The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth: A historical romance novel, it tells the story of Dortchen Wild, the girl who grew up next door to the Grimm brothers. It is beautifully written and recommended for all lovers of fairy tales and historical fiction. – Vanessa
Hamlet by William Shakespeare: One of Shakespeare’s greatest triumphs, Hamlet remains known today with one question, ‘To be or not to be?’ which summarises all of our existential conflicts so succinctly. As poetic and timeless as it is brutal and tragic, Hamlet is a must read before thou sleepst no more. -Matthew
The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julia Kagawa: In a world ruled by vampires, humans are either kept as blood cattle or considered unregistered – left to fend for themselves outside the safety of city walls. Allison, the main character of this novel is an incredibly strong and enjoyable character to share a mind with, and this gripping tale sees her fight against the confines of her world, while also trying to control the hated monster within.. For fans of YA Fantasy, this is a must to add to your book shelf. – Sophie
Mr Kiss and Tell by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham: Mr Kiss and Tell is the second instalment of the Veronica Mars book series, which follows the fabulous TV show and movie. Crime fighting, sassy dialogue and the usual suspects makes for a fun and fast paced read. Loving every minute! – Zoe
