    Hi, I've read it - made my blood run cold. I think it was one of Richard and Judy's book club books. You think a book like that would be going nowhere, but it surprised me. Enjoy.

    Yes that book is amazing! So sad but so beautifully written you can't help but get drawn into it

    Maybebaby Jodie Picoult is my all time favourite author so it's great to see her recommended!! I love each and every one of her books and always look for ones I don't have when I'm in Canada or America. OnceI start reading her books I just can't put them down :D (man i sound really sad now hehehe)

    Merde Actually

    both by Stephen Clarke, about a guy who is setting up an English tea room in France, absolutely hilarious

    Awww thanks hun :) I would recommend The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards, fantastic book that Jodie Picoult endorsed. I'm also reading The Secrets of a Fire King by her too and it's lots of little insights into peoples lives and very well written

    If you haven't read them already Jodies books Ninteen Minutes and Change of Heart are incredible. I just finished reading Change of Heart and had to 'pace' myself with it cos I didnt want it to end! :D

    Any other recommendations you have would be great! :)

    Oh would love a book club, one where we all read a book not read before and then review it, not get inot like the depths of what do you think this book means, but what did you think it it etc.

    A good book that I would recommend is Marlay and Me by John Grogan. Its makes you laugh and cry. Based on the true story of John Grogan raising a labrador puppy xx
