LoveMyRead's Review

If such a thing as justice exists, this book should sweep the board of prizes this year. It’s astonishing. For a book to be at once gripping and thrilling and yet so delicate and tender…it just floored me. It’s not really enough to say that this book is a great feat of literature – it’s feat of humanity as well, of compassion and empathy and understanding. It seems to stand on the shoulders of all the literature that’s gone before it and look out at a landscape of morality, heroism, sacrifice and selfishness and somehow make sense of it all. Everyone everywhere should read it.

The High House

Jessie Greengrass

Fiction

Francesca, a scientist, can see what’s going to happen. They’ve turned their house into an arc, and watch the horizon for the weather that’s rolling in.

LoveMyRead Review

I was bowled over by the bravery of this novel and its stunning writing. Grounded in a potential real future for the planet, this dystopian, apocalyptical story is completely absorbing because it feels so human, so real and so urgent. At the end of the day, it’s about us – our choice to stay alive, our choice to help those around us and a question of what we’re prepared to sacrifice. The relationship between Caro and Pauly is so beautifully drawn. I raced through the book with them by my side and felt such an urgent need to help them as their terrifying fate unfolded. This is a book about love and the power of coming together to find protection. I can hardly believe it’s a debut.

Early Morning Riser

Katherine Heiny

Fiction

It’s a bit awkward when the man you fall in love with has slept with every woman in town.

Boyne City, Michigan. Duncan’s ex-girlfriends are everywhere. He still mows his ex-wife’s lawn. But when tragedy strikes, Jane and Duncan’s lives become linked inextricably.

LoveMyRead Review

From the get-go, this book just fizzes with brilliant humour. Every turn of phrase, every observation is perfectly executed and keeps you turning page after page, laughing merrily along. If you need a smile put on your face right now, spend ten minutes with this book and your mood will instantly lift. The story is funny, the characters are brilliant and above all, the portrayal of a life lived a bit messily is so relatable and down to earth. It’s just completely what the world needs right now and I want to pass it on to every one of my pals.

The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman

Julietta Henderson

LoveMyRead Review

This is a quirky, brilliantly funny book with a huge personality. Its cast of characters are just the perfect tonic for our times – so loveable, funny and charming, you can’t help but cheer them on. The plot is a kind of comedy of errors but with a tender heart, based on loss and disconnection, but never trite nor overly sentimental. This is a book to restore one’s faith in humanity. You know a book is good when you race through it, only to read the last pages very slowly because you don’t want it to end!

Here & Now

Santa Montefiore

Fiction

A stunning story of a mind failing and a community coming together to save it.

Paperback

LoveMyRead Review

This book most definitely comes with a mascara warning. While heart-breaking and deeply moving, it’s also an upbeat and positive story about community and coming together, so resonate and timely right now. Readers shouldn’t be put off by the heavy subject because it’s dealt with a grace and tenderness that’s a really beautiful thing to witness. Marigold and her husband Dennis are such a lovely couple and the breadth of their hearts is drawn so beautifully by the writer. The romantic sub-plot is perfectly balanced in the book. Anyone who loves a good book about people and how we relate to one another in a community, will absolutely fall in love with this one.

The Postscript Murders

Elly Griffiths

Fiction

One of 2020’s best-loved murder mysteries is now available in paperback.

Peggy Smith, 90, is a murder consultant. She spends her days devising gruesome crimes for writers up and down the country. So, when her days abruptly end in mysterious circumstances, it seems that DS Harbinder Kaur has a new case on her hands…

Paperback

LoveMyRead Review

This is one of those cosy crime novels to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon and zip through the pages with endless cups of tea. It’s clever, at turns funny and so brilliantly put together, it had me guessing throughout. Anyone who loves a good whodunnit will fall in love with this one. When you find a really good crime writer like Christie or Horowitz, many other attempts at the genre can seem a bit weak – but for me, this really held its own and I loved every twist and turn along the way.
