      Summer Supporter Giveaway   08/31/2020

      Going on a Summer Holiday (Sort Of...)     The summer giveaway for Patreon supporters is finally here and this time we're doing something a little bit different. I want supporters to tell me where you would go on holiday, if you could go anywhere. The winner will receive a bookish prize based on their answer!   Terms and conditions are as usual. Patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the giveaway and selected at random. As we're a little late this year the draw will be held on the second weekend of September. If you aren't currently a supporter but want to be involved in the giveaway you can sign up to support us here:   https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

That is a long longlist! :) I saw Apple Tree Yard mentioned a lot on twitter, and I've seen The Universe Versus Alex Woods on the audible website a lot. I may have to look into them a bit more.

They are very different reads, take you into totally different worlds but each completely gripping.  Apple Tree Yard suspenseful and intelligent and at times shocking while The Universe Versus Alex Woods is funny and poignant and uplifting.

Loved Apple Tree Yard. And The Cry is on my TBR. I read the sample and it had me gripped, so can't wait to get to it. Also, I thought The Silent Wife was brilliant... excruciating at times (just wanted to shake her!) but loved it. Great ending.
