Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman (2017)

It's been a few days since I finished this book and I still haven't stopped raving about it to my family, friends, and colleagues at work. Not for a while has a book moved me so much.

Let's begin with our introduction… Continue reading Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman (2017)

However, I finished This Family of Things by Alison Jameson this morning. It's due for UK release… Continue reading An unsuccessful reading month (with a good ending)

The Glorious Heresies, by Louise McInerney (2015)

The Glorious Heresies. Wow. What a novel! A few days after being so captivated by the story that I read the last 120 pages in 2 hours and I’m still in awe. No wonder it won the Bailey’s Prize last year! Set in contemporary Cork (Ireland), The Glorious Heresies pivots on the death of a… Continue reading The Glorious Heresies, by Louise McInerney (2015)
