Book Club | August 2019 Roundup

It's book club roundup time again, and we have a short and sweet one for you this month! Here are a few of the books shared for our August theme 'water on the cover'...

I missed a couple of months of the @bloggersbookshelf book club but I’m back with A Year of Marvellous Ways for this month’s theme: books with water on the cover. A Year of Marvellous Ways is a little bit difficult to describe. It’s about an 89 year old woman called Marvellous Ways, a 27 year old soldier called Francis Drake, their lives, their friendship, the sea, and magic. It’s an unusual novel, one which I’m sure has charmed a lot of people and will continue to for a long time to come. It charmed me in places too but unfortunately the parts I liked and the parts I didn’t seemed to even out, leaving me with an opinion as hard to put into words as the story itself. Still, if you like unusual, literary novels with a splash of whimsy and magic, this is probably a good one to look in to! - #bloggersbookshelf #bookshelfbookclub #bookstagram #bookbloggers #bookreview #reading #books #bookworm #booklove #bookcovers #prettybooks #beautifulbooks #instabooks #bibliophile #vsco #vscocam #vscobooks #igreads #booklover #tea #teastagram #cupoftea #acupoftea #teatime #timefortea #abookandacupoftea #acupofteaandabook

Summer Of Salt By Katrina Leno

"I really wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book, but I'd heard really good things about it. The world and characters created by Leno were certainly intriguing and I also liked both the unique setting of By-the-Sea and the addition of magical elements. Overall Summer Of Salt was an enjoyable read." - Erin

We Were Liars By E Lockhart

"If you're after a story about family, friends, love and adventure, manipulation and lies, complete with a thousand questions about what really happened to Cady the Summer of 15, then grab a copy of this book." - from Anjali's recent review

We'll be introducing September's book club theme tomorrow so don't forget to check back!
