My Favourite Books of this Year so Far...

Tuesday, September 17

If you are looking for some book recommendations...these have been very popular in our book club in the past few months.


The Cookbook Collector, Allegra Goodman. I loved this, and think all the girls who have read it enjoyed it.

The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson, may be more interesting to anyone who would like to learn more about autism, and as a children's physiotherapist I found it very enlightening as to what it is like to live with an autistic child 24/7..

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce, most of us thought was brilliant, but one or two of the girls didn't enjoy it all! If you have read it, what did you think?

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, seems to have topped all the best seller lists, and whilst it won't change your life in the long term, it's really gripping.

The Fever Tree, by Jennifer Mcveigh, I LOVED! Please read it and let me know if you agree?

The Hundred-Year-Old Man who climbed out of the Window and Disappeared, by Jonas Jonasson. I adored this too! Don't think I've met anyone who didn't?

And then on my kindle recently...

Bobbi recommended, The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith, and it was unputdownable! Seriously, I didn't sleep a wink on our flight to New York. It is actually written by a super famous author under a different name.  Maybe read it first then google who it's really by later? Apparently the person who let slip who really wrote it lost their job...

Where'd you go Bernadette by Maria Semple was also recommended to me by Bobbi, and was really great too. I can't stop thinking about the house that they live in. 

The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson, I found quite heavy going in parts.  What I didn't realise at the time was just how much I learnt about what life is like in North Korea.  It's an incredible story and a modern day political education about the atrocities that are going on in North Korea as we speak.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green I can't stop thinking about. Life is just sometimes so unfair.

Have you read any of these?

Any other recommendations for me?

My last lot of recommendations you can find here.
