Today I hosted a booktalk at Hawthorn Library.

Booktalks are fun (most of the time)

Three library staff talk for 20 minutes each about 4 or 5 books they’ve read and enjoyed.

I spoke about five books.

The lost by Claire McGowan (set in Northern Ireland)

The Swedish girl by Alex Gray (set in Glasgow & Stockholm)

Don’t go by Lisa Scottoline (one of my favourite crime authors but this isn’t really a crime novel)

Life in ten houses by Sonia Hartnett. (A 50 or page memoir about her search for the forever house to write in)

Homework for grown ups by E. Foley.

Hopefully others will enjoy them as much as I did.
