The Mamamia Book Circle. What are you reading?

Looking for a good new book to read? Look no further. Mamamia’s book posts are (not really) famous for making everyone’s wallets cry as they put together long lists of all the books they need to go out and buy.

Today, we’re taking it one step further. We’re not just going to leave you with a written recommendation – we’re going to give you a VIDEO.

You’re welcome.

More specifically, this video will be The Book Circle – a new installment, led by Cheryl Akle (project director of Get Reading! and book review queen). A new episode will go up each month. We’ll be talking about new books, old books, hot books, not-so-hot books, books that let us escape and… well… every other kind of book you can think of, really.

In our first episode, Cheryl sits down with authors Chris Cleave, Caroline Overington and Hannah Richell, and talks about each of their books.

Chris Cleeve talks about his new book Gold. He starts at the 19 sec mark. Caroline Overington is talking about her book Matilda is Missing (and she’s recently released one called Sisters of Mercy) at 2 minutes 50 sec and Hannah Richell is the debut fiction author of Secrets of The Tides. Her interview starts at 5  min 07 secs.

Take a look.

The book we’ll be discussing next month is The Engagement by Chloe Hooper, so get a copy – beg, borrow or steal if you have to – and let us know what you think…
