My recommendations...

I love a good book, especially when it gets me at page one and I can’t stop reading. These titles are handpicked for your reading pleasure. I’m excited about two highly anticipated releases – Stephen King’s sequel to his bestselling ‘The Shining’ and Colleen McCullough’s latest – set to rival her biggest blockbuster ‘Thorn Birds’. There are other favourites too and I do hope you pick a book or two. Happy reading!
