Awesome Read

Struggle through the first 150 pages or so to get set up for a page turning novel. At times the subject matter is quite troubling but you become so involved with these characters and events.

A fun read

This is at times 'laugh out loud' funny.

The Goldfinch

A few liked the book but the general consensus was a couple couldn't get into it at all and put it down and the rest thought it was way too long with way too much time spent on their drug use.

'Defending Jacob'

A must read

This was the absolutely a delightful read, and we all loved it. It was a book I didn't want to finish as I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Ove and the cast of characters.

Me Before You

We had never read anything by JoJo Moyes before so am now interested in other novels written by her. Some members have read the sequel 'After You' and strongly suggest reading to 'close the chapter' on Louise Clark.

Good read

We all enjoyed it but felt it was a bit contrived. Too many characters introduced.
