Book Club 2022 - Weekly Books

Hello all!

A very Happy New Year and welcome to 2022! As I mentioned last year in this post in 2022 I’m going to be running TWO different book clubs for any member of the community to join in!

You may already be a ferocious reader and so the 12 book list is just a little too short for you OR there isn’t much that takes your fancy. If that is the case, please do have a look at the 52 book list below (1 a week) which is to be taken at your own pace (if you want to do more than 1 a week, please feel free or if you just like the look of more books on this list, feel free to read one (or more!) of these instead! The books have all been pulled from either the book recommendation post in 2021 or from book club must read guides online.

I’ll set up little chats for each book on a monthly basis so please look out for each chat and join in if you’d like to! I hope you enjoy!
