Giorgia will be recommending a book to: Cheryl
Alannah will be recommending a book to: Diane S

I'm a bit late with this list, but at least it meant Diane S and Heather could take part!

Please check the length of the book you are recommending, and perhaps have another in reserve if it's very long! Having said that, the last two books I was recommended were long, but I'm so glad I read them, they were excellent!!

Please try to give your recommendation by 1st May!

Diane S ☔ Received mine from Alannah, which was kind of funny because it was on my night table staring me in the face. The bell jar.

Shirley | 4177 comments Hopefully now everyone has heard from their partner - and it looks like there are some great books to read over the next two months! My book to read is The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, which I shall read next.

I read this on swap last year and enjoyed it!

I will be reading Holy Fools. Joanne Harris is an author I have been meaning to read more of and I actually own a second hand copy of this book. I plan to start after I've read Mrs. Dalloway otherwise I will keep putting that one off
