Biography d X
by Catherine Lacey | Buy this book
A brilliant book, intelligent and so broad in scope. It’s a real masterful intertwining of alternative, re-imagined history. Funny and poignant in parts.

I'm a 26 year old trans woman who loves satire, scifi, graphic novels and history books, looking for an inclusive reading group to help me get out a bit more and reconnect with reading for fun (I've been in a career with a lot of reading for a while so haven't had the time or energy to read really awesome books - hoping to get some good recommendations!)

Money by Martin Amis
Money
by Martin Amis | Buy this book
I really enjoy the unreliable first person narrator - it makes the book flow differently to anything I've ever read before (the narrator has consistent memory problems and lies frequently.) The book paints an incredibly emotional and sympathetic portrait of an incredibly unsympathetic character - it captures the feeling of spiralling out of control in a really vivid way from a first person perspective.

Lots of twist and turns and great writing.
A Little Bit Country  by Brian D Kennedy
A Little Bit Country
by Brian D Kennedy | Buy this book
A lovely easy ready (only look me 24 hours) of young men who meet by chance and have an instant spark, they face challenges over personal ambition and the classic of coming out and being in love and true to them selves versus the continuing with the status quo and living up to their family values but remaining gut wrenchingly in happy. Lots of funny moments as well as moment one who was a young gay man in the closet and resonate with too… I couldn’t but this book down.
