Susie (Bishop Auckland)

I'm retired and live alone. A book group would be a way of meeting people with similar interests. I've always loved reading - thrillers, romantic suspense, and historical fiction mainly but I'll try anything but Sci-fi and fantasy.

Susie recommends:

by Rebecca Bryn | Buy this book
I'd already read the following two books and enjoyed them This one shows two of the main characters growing up and why they became the people they did. It's a fascinating story clearly based on accurate research.

MamaBee (Durham)

I’m a new mammy to a beautiful little girl. I’m 23 (almost 24) and love new adult fantasy romance books - but I’m open to anything! During and after pregnancy I have lost who I am as a person, and I’m hoping that by finding a community of people with similar passions to me I can start to find myself again.

MamaBee recommends:

A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St Clair
A Touch of Darkness
by Scarlett St Clair | Buy this book
It’s a retelling of Hades and Persephone. It has a modern touch and is filled with self discovery, romance, magic and just enough of Persephone being a badass.
