Recommendations from our Social Media Followers

Question: Which of the titles that you received at Christmas would you recommend and why?​

  1. “The Botanist” by M. W. Craven love all his books. Washington Poe is the main character, and his sidekick is Tilly Bradshaw. If you like crime novels give them a go.
  2. “Rick Stein's Simple Suppers” - lots of ideas for tasty but uncomplicated meals.
  3. “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou. Fascinating autobiography, not challenging to read; though the story and depiction of discrimination gives one plenty to reflect on.
  4. Loved the hardback copy of “Three Go to the Chalet School” by Elinor Brent-Dyer - the paperback missed out a whole romance and engagement!
  5. I am really enjoying ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stane’ translated into Scots by Matthew Fitt.
  6. No new books this year as making the most of the Libby app - currently reading the Skulduggery Pleasant books by Derek Landy. A bit of light-hearted fun and fantasy.
