Baldur (Carlisle)

I am in my seventies living in the countryside with my wife, my children and grandchildren now living separately. I have had to read extensively on economics, business practice and current affairs for my business and professional career but now, having only one small business left, I am turning more to fiction and poetry. However, for all that I enjoy reading the classics and well-established authors, I feel I am somewhat “stuck“ and need to voyage wider. Also, I miss the substantial benefit of a range reviews on what I have read and having my own challenged. (There’s an obvious typo in the name of the author of my recommended book, “Vasily” of course, not “Basils”! The app made impossible to edit.

Ambleside Book Club (Ambleside)

We both love reading various genres and are hoping to find some liked minded people who would be interested in starting a book club with us. We were thinking of meeting once a month in a cafe/pub where we can talk about the book we chose to read, to choose the next months book, and to talk about anything else. If you love the idea we’d be happy to hear from you!

Emma (Ambleside)

I love most genres: contemporary, historical, magical realism, crime, romance, fantasy,... and would love to find other local people to meet up, chat books, life and to simply have a nice time together :)

Emma recommends:

Hex by Jenni Fagan
Hex
by Jenni Fagan | Buy this book
I loved the blend between historical and magical realism genres in this book and just think it is the most perfect and most touching short read I have read in the past year. It is a story about women's suffering in the witch hunt era, women supporting each other and love and friendship whilst being most brutally touching and thought-provoking.
