Carrot Cake Murder by Joanna Fluke
Armada by Ernest Cline
Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour by Bryan Lee O'Malley
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Ariel Bisett's favourite book. I've only ever read 1984 by George Orwell and wanted to pick up more of his work. This is a classic, I barely have to explain what it's about as it's so well known. I really loved it, I'm looking forward to picking up more Orwell in the future.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
Criminal London by Tom Hollington
Only Ever Yours by Louise O Neill
The Age of Earthquakes by Douglas Copeland
Leena Norms videos. You can flick through it, pick random pages, read it in one go, go back and reread certain parts. It's a perfect bathroom read!
Lying Out Loud by Jody Keplinger
Meatspace by Nikesh Shukla
All Together Now by Gill Hornby
I read The Hive by Gill Hornby last year and enjoyed it so when I saw this on NetGalley I requested it. It follows Tracey Leckford, a single mother, who just wants to be left alone, to deal with no one but her son. She does her best to blend in at work and has never met any of her neighbours. Until one day, Lewis, not only her neighbour but member of the Bridgeford Choir, knocks on her door and asks her to join the choir. Reluctant at first, Tracey goes along and from there the story takes off. The mismatch of characters in this group made it interesting, to see them all interact with each other. I loved seeing the progression of the group, friendships being formed and how the characters gained confidence. This story sucked me in and kept me interested, a nice quick contemporary read.
