Whatโ€™s was the last great book you read?

From e-readers to paperbacks, best sellers to charity shop finds, itโ€™s easier with all this choice to get you hands on a page turner, but with so much choice, separating the diamonds from the drivel is getting harder, so I think recommendations are even more valuable than they used to be.

Reading helps my brain re-set from the day, and I find it easier to fall asleep if I read before bed, so having a book on the go is a must for me.

So, what was your last great read? Was it a life changing self-help or a fictional getaway, is there a book you keep going back to or are you in the middle of a something new, I am excited to hear.

Iโ€™m a big fiction reader but I recently picked up Atomic Habits by James Clear, it was an interesting read on the power of habit forming, his clear examples at the beginning of each chapter made each step achievable.

Iโ€™m thrilled to hear your recommendations so let me know, what book would you recommend to a stranger?

Did Gibson's Sprawl trilogy recently. Must read for all cyberpunk fans.

Thoroughly enjoyed rereading Brave New World by Huxley, its truly amazing considering the book is from 1932.

"The Beekeeper of Aleppo" by Christy Lefteri.

A story of refugees displaced from Syria by war and follows their journey, treatment and personal losses.

A very well written book and thought-provoking bookIMHO. Also saw it as a play and that was very good too.

I recently discovered โ€œromantasyโ€ genre, which is romance/fantasy and I am almost finished with A Court of Thorns and Roses book series. There are 5 books in total and the latter part of book 3 with so mind blowing with its battle scene it was like watching it on the big screen! Highly recommend!
