Book Worms


Book Worms

This is a very friendly, small group of 8 members and would welcome 1 or 2 more. We generally order books through Ash Library which costs £3.25 for each set. One member pays each month.

Normally we would meet on the last Thursday of each month in a member’s house. Due to the Covid-19 virus, we are unable to meet in person but are keeping the group going by holding virtual meetings on ‘zoom’. We read for enjoyment and friendship and zoom has helped us stay in touch through these difficult times. The next meeting is:

  • Thursday 28th January at 10 a.m.

Some of the books we have read:

  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
  • This Sweet Sickness y Patricia Highsmith 
  • The Man I Thought I Know by Mike Gayle
  • Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans
  • A Man called Ove by Fredrik Backman
  • Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory
  • Bloodstream by Tess Gerritsen
  •  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Coming Up Trumps by Jean Trumpington 

We have mostly enjoyed all the books so far; giving them fairly high scores out of 10. We all agree that since joining the group we are reading more and experiencing new authors that we would perhaps not otherwise have looked at.

For January we are reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by  Heather Morris.

    Later in the year we may choose from the following:

  • Room by Emma Donoghue
  • Murder on a Thursday by Richard Osman
  • My Judy Garland Life by Susie Boyt
  • One of Andrea Levy’s novels
