New Year, new reading

Apple tree Commonplace Longbourn Never

Rage Rosie sisterland Storyteller

If you are looking for some ideas for a good read for the new year, Richard and Judy’s book club is back with their Spring selection (yes, Spring already!)

There is a good crop of thrillers including Louise Doughty’s ‘Apple Tree Yard’ which is proving popular and ‘A Commonplace Killing’ by Sian Busby set in the austerity days of post-war Britain. Sian Busby, the wife of Robert Peston, died just before the book was published. There is ‘The Storyteller’ from the much loved Jodi Picoult and ‘Sisterland’, about psychic twins, from ‘American Wife’ author Curtis Sittenfield.
I think I might enjoy ‘Longbourn’ by Jo Baker, which tells the story of the servants behind the family in ‘Pride and Prejudice’ ” If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats, Sarah thought, she would be more careful not to trudge through muddy fields”
What is on your reading list for the New Year?
