R&J Bookclub

The Richard and Judy Bookclub is back for autumn. From the list of 8 titles 3 will be debut novels. The Widow by Fiona Barton, Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin & The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald – This one you may see in a future review post as I am looking forward reading it because it’s about a Swedish woman who moves to America to open a bookshop in honour of dead friend.

Beasts
