Introducing - The Bookclub

I love a good book. Getting sucked into another world and being swept along by an excellent story is one of my favourite pastimes. And getting to discuss it with other people who’ve also read that book is equally fun! I always love hearing how other people have interpreted a story - especially if they’ve picked up something that I’ve missed or vice versa.

With that in mind we’re launching a new monthly book club here at The first book will be The Cuckoo’s Calling by J.K. Rowling (written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith). It is the first in a series of crime novels featuring the character of Cormoran Strike. Strike is a seasoned private detective, who is commissioned to investigate the apparent suicide of a beautiful young supermodel in London.


If you enjoyed the Harry Potter novels, then you will no doubt enjoy this book too. To me, Rowling’s gift as a storyteller lies in her skill at creating complex characters who each have their own perspectives and motivations within the story as a whole. And who doesn’t love a good old murder mystery? I know I do!


The Book Club will begin next month with The Cuckoo’s Calling. If you want to take part, all you’ll have to do is read the book and join the chat in the comments. I can’t wait to see how we all get on with it. I’ve just started it and I’m loving it so far…


We'll be back with an update in July but get reading now! And in the meantime let us know if there are any great books that you’ve read recently that we might pick for the next time…
