Anneka (Poole)

Hello there! I am a 26 year old, book and coffee obsessed individual who is looking to join a book club with like minded bookworms! I like a mixture of fantasy, young adult, romance and I am slowly (but surely...) branching into crime solving thriller! I am however, up for trying any book if it's one that is highly rated, I will never say no based on it's cover! If this is something you're also interested in, happy to chat!

Ladybird77 (Wareham)

Hi, would like to join a local book club. I’m Mid 40s with grown up family and busy career. Reading is my escape. I read everything that comes with a recommendation. Meeting one evening a month would be great - with wine and/or dinner even better!

My Year of Rest and Relaxation  by Ottessa moshfegg
My Year of Rest and Relaxation
by Ottessa moshfegg | Buy this book
Currently reading this after picking it up in a holiday book swap. Not what I was expecting at all but it’s really good. It’s about a young single woman with mental health issues who has a mischievous side and a crazy psychologist. As it progresses you understand why she thinks the way she does…it think it’s going to be a heartbreaker.
