So. Summer holidays are almost here you’re going to need something to read while you relax on the beach/by the pool/while you’re sitting around your non-airconditioned home fanning yourself with a tea towel. Or maybe you’re still trying to sort your Christmas shopping and find the perfect present for your sister’s boyfriend’s uncle Joe?
Either way, we’ve got you covered. Because in this month’s latest episode of the Book Circle, we have a super-stellar panel to share with you.
