Making friends in your 30s seems almost impossible and I'd love to have more friends who enjoy reading, looking for a book club that meets up in person rather than online. I'm 33 and I love reading thrillers, my favourite series is The Collector Series by Dot Hutchison. I'd like to explore more horror after reading Left to You by Daniel Volpe, I read it over 2 years ago and I still remember every detail, which is very rare for me! Outside of books I'm an avid football and cricket fan, I love live music (just got back from Download festival and my feet still hurt) and I've been teetotal since December 2020.

I'm terrible at writing reviews but it's a great book, dark and full of mystery with really intriguing characters.

Nikki

I’m a horror-obsessed 27 y/o looking for a book club to meet up in person once a month, preferably horror genre (extreme horror and splatterpunk included) but I don’t mind a bit of crime thriller and fantasy now and again!

The Watchers by A.M. Shine

I love how dark and ominous this book is! It was a tad slow to start off with but as soon as it kicks in you don’t want to put the book down. Love the Irish folklore elements too
Playground by Aron Beauregard
Playground
by Aron Beauregard | Buy this book
While this book definitely isn’t for the faint hearted and is at time super gross, I absolutely loved it! The children and parents all have their own developed personalities which makes it really easy to differentiate between them all (and it makes it easy for you to decide which characters you like and which you don’t). It’s definitely a shocking book at times but I appreciate it!
The Shuddering by Ania Ahlborn

The characters are all likeable which makes you that little bit more invested in them and the plot. It’s got moments or eeriness and dread and also has plenty of bold horror elements too!
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
Doctor Sleep
by Stephen King | Buy this book
I loved The Shining but for me Doctor Sleep beats it by far! While it’s not exactly scary, there are some nasty scenes that really show you how evil some of the characters are. I also really love that we get to see how Danny grew up and how he moved on after the Overlook hotel.

Ellie

I'm 19 and haven't read properly since a young age aside from the odd book here and there. I used to love the work of R.J Anderson, and I still have a passion for fantasy books. I'd like to meet like minded people and get back my imagination!
