Book Club: February Reading List

Every month we’ll be sharing a few books that we’ve loved and would recommend. They might sometimes be old books or sometimes books that are currently pulling a bandwagon, but they’ll always have our stamp of approval! We’d love for you to read them with us, to share your thoughts or to recommend other books that you’ve enjoyed that you think we should share with our readers. All genres welcome, it’s always good to have some variety!

This month we are looking at a few beautiful, love stories. We hope you’ll fall in love with them, just like we did!

A Little Life Hanya Yanaghara

A Little Life

By Hanya Yanagihara.

A Little Life follows four college classmates--broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition--as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara's stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.

The Only Story Julian Barnes

The Only Story

By Julian Barnes.

Would you rather love the more, and suffer the more; or love the less, and suffer the less? That is, I think, finally, the only real question.

As he grows older, the demands placed on Paul by love become far greater than he could possibly have foreseen. Tender and wise, The Only Story is a deeply moving novel by one of Britain's greatest mappers of the human heart.
