Us by David Nicholls

The author of the multimillion bestseller ‘One Day’ has returned to reward us with yet another phenomenal tale of a marriage under pressure and it is fair to say, it is more than worth the wait.

“Douglas Petersen understands his wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving home. So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again.”

Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham

From the creator of hit TV show ‘Girls”, Lena Dunham brings her witty sense of humour to a series of essays or supposed ‘dispatches from the frontlines’. A truly hilarious take on a multitude of twenty-somethings issues.

"If I could take what I’ve learned and make one menial job easier for you, or prevent you from having the kind of sex where you feel you must keep your sneakers on in case you want to run away during the act, then every misstep of mine was worthwhile."

The Paying Guests by Sarah Walters

From the author of such thrillingly high charged novels as ‘The Fingersmith’and ‘The Little Stranger’, Sarah Walters has done it again with this truly impressive and enchanting period drama.

“It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned, the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa, a large silent house now bereft of brothers, husband and even servants, life is about to be transformed, as impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.”
