Started 'We Begin at the End - Chris Whitaker' tonight. Really enjoying it so far, which I am glad about as my expectations are quite high with this one..
Anyone else started a new book today?

Circe's brilliant. It was one of my favourite books of last year.

Circe is on my read list for this year. Heard lots of good things.

I started Born Survivors by Wendy Holden today. So far so good.

The book I’ve just finished is The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman, would really recommend if you’re looking for something fairly lighthearted.
