C.S Lewis once said, “you can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” Reading is a wonderful way to switch off from the outside world, and is best enjoyed somewhere cosy and comfortable.

Miss Benson’s Beetle by Rachel Joyce

A funny, charming story of two women on a life-changing adventure, where they must risk everything, break all the rules, and discover their best selves—together. We recommend you sink into a cosy corner sofa with a cup of tea, or glass of wine to enjoy this feel-good read.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

The heart breaking story is based on many interviews conducted by Heather Morris with Holocaust survivor, Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. Lale, who was a tattooist in Auschwitz-Birkenau, falls in love at first glance. An unforgettable story of survival and hope.
