“I’m a huge fan of changing the way we think and positivity so reading about the key ingredient to the happiness of the Danes’ and their obsession with Hygge, pronounced: hyoo-guh is right up my street. This little book provides insight into the pursuit of everyday pleasures and the cosiness of the soul. If you’re looking for comfort and warmth, whilst learning how to feel complete contentment every day, this book is for you.” – Olivia Ball

Watchmen – Alan Moore

“I used to read a lot of comics when I was younger and thought I would pick up a graphic novel to take on holiday with me one year. This book got me hooked again on comics for such a long time. You should never think you’re too old for comics and this is a must for anyone if you want to start somewhere in the world of comics/graphic novels.” – Ant Langan

Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng

“Little Fires Everywhere is a book I find hard to put down. If you enjoy being engrossed in a book full of emotion this is for you. Don’t go into the book expecting too much at once, with most of Celeste Ng’s books we know she likes a slow-moving character portrait, followed by small-town dynamics. This book takes you through the notion that being a mother doesn’t mean you have to be perfect.” – Aisha Tindale

The World of Football According to Athletico Mince – Andy Dawson

“I love everything Bob Mortimer does, and this book is just as mad. A lot of the book is taken from his podcast but still enough to make me laugh. It’s an easy read, one you can pick up and start at any point in the book.” – Ant Langan

Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens

“This book is about survival, resilience, hope, love, and more. Whilst flicking backwards and forwards in time to tell the story of Kya Clark, living on the outskirts of town, you get to understand her difficult journey in life. Whilst this book tugs on your heartstrings as you learn of this girl’s heart-wrenching story, this book is also about nature and how Kya uses nature essentially for survival. This read certainly connects the book with the reader and it’s very difficult to put down!” – Aisha Tindale
