Book of the week: Treasured Islands by Peter Naldrett

Jun 20 2021

As many of us will be looking to book holidays in the UK and closer to home this year, there’s the perfect book publishing in June that showcases some of the most beautiful and fun spots Britain has to offer.

Peter Naldrett’s Treasured Islands published by Bloomsbury is a detailed and inspiring guide to over 200 of Britain’s most stunning and interesting islands – whether that be a sandy paradise or a wild Scottish location, it’s the perfect book for planning an island getaway, and of course for planning a staycation or a weekend away when we can get back out there. It’s filled with best kept secrets in terms of hidden gems around Britain. It’s a pleasure turning these pages full of beautiful colour photos and interesting fact boxes.

Book of the week: How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

Jun 07 2021

Quick Reads, the life-changing scheme tackling the UK’s shocking adult literary crisis, are the way forward to encourage people to read. I love the short books in the 2021 series including best-selling London authors Caitlin Moran, Louise Candlish and Khurrum Rahman among others.

Sunday Times best-seller and British Book Award winner Louise Candlish is renowned for her dark domestic thrillers and has written a powerful short story for this year’s Quick Reads collection – The Skylight. Londoner Louise is part of this year’s campaign because she has experienced first-hand the transformative power of books – she credits reading for setting her on the right path when she was ‘young and adrift’ and discovered books at a free public library – ‘it means such a lot to me to be a part of literacy campaign that really does change lives.’
