- •Remember Me Like This, by Bret Anthony JohnstonJustin has been missing from his family for four years. When he's finally found, things can go back to normal, right? But there is no normal for this family. There never can be again. Psychologically insightful, beautifully written, but quite dense and hard work - it's taking me forever, but I've been in a bit of a reading slump for a while, so that might just be me. 7.5/10 so far.
- •Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson"In fact, sometimes crazy is just right." - loving this so far. I really want to read it everywhere so everyone can experience this amazing cover. A solid 9/10.Suggested by @helga
- •Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan StradalThe main character's name is Eva and was born in Minneapolis. My name is Eva and I was born in Minneapolis. Naturally, I had to read it! I'm not too far in yet but so far I like it.Suggested by @evak
- •Armchair Nation - a history of Britain in front of the TV, and it's very interesting. But I've only just started so I will let you know!Suggested by @Georgeeblack
- •Come to the Edge by Christina HaagI wasn't sure what I'd think about this book; I'm not obsessed with the Kennedys and I'm not a fan of celebrity bios. But this book isn't full of salacious gossip and doesn't seem self-serving. So far, it's tender and earnest. However, I'm finding it hard to connect to at times; things are almost too perfect (even though I know the far-from-perfect ending already) and the effusive flowery metaphors and analogies can be a bit much. That being said, I'm enjoying it. Verdict: still out.Suggested by @LizDawson
