I thought I’d briefly compile a little list of some truly remarkable reads.
Some, I had the pleasure of coming in contact with a very long time ago, whilst others are fairly new acquaintances.
Be aware, I’m not an undergraduate in literature (oh the shock), and sometimes I struggle to read between the lines, however these little beauties have delivered hours of enjoyment, so I thought it would be wise to share…
Please note: The below mentioned aren’t in any particular order (except maybe 1, 2, 3) and will no doubt be added to (so look out for joint 3rd , joint 4th and joint 15th etc in the not too distant future).
