The best book Iâ€™ve read lately is the Justin Cronin trilogy; The Passage,Â The TwelveÂ andÂ The City Of Mirrors. Insanely good reads, Iâ€™ve done the first two, now I have to find the time to read the last one!

Veranda: The Art of Outdoor LivingÂ by Lisa Newsom. I love reading about the romantic gardens of the Camargue countryside and gardens inspired by the neo-classical Venetian Palazzo. With summer approaching I am loving the beautiful outdoor living and inspirations. As a result, I have planted a new lemon tree and copious amount of lavenders. The bees will be happyâ€¦

Lanny, by Max Porter is one of the best books I’ve read lately. I really enjoyed the elements of fantasy balanced masterfully with modern life issues. Set amongst the backdrop of a small old English village, with hints of an eccentric crime thriller, all packed into a neat short read. Deservingly longlisted for the 2019 Man Booker Prize.
