Read Our Latest Book Reviews

We  don’t just love reading book but qw love sharing them with anyone who will put up with us waxing lyrical about them. In our book reviews we only give a brief synopsis of the plot (hey, you can read the blurb!). What we do try to do is give a frank and honest review of the book. How it made us feel. What we liked. What we didn’t like. Highlight themes that may be confrontational or inappropriate (in terms of age). Over 2017 we hope to get some more reviews from a few of our book club kids, so keep your eyes peeled. We’d be more than happy to hear from any young person interested in reviewing books for us. Contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Two New Book Clubs

The book clubs are filling up fast. Two are full and have waiting lists. This year we have added two new book clubs:

– The Outsiders – aimed at age 14+

– The Book Cellars – aimed at adults who love to read and discuss YA (young adult) and maybe indulge in a glass or two of wine

Come and get the next book and  join us now!
