Warwickshire Reading Groups book reviews;


One Kenilworth group enjoyed Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller.

They likened it to Room by Emma Donoghue. They thought it would make a good film!


A group in Dunchurch has lots of questions about the characters in Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O’Farrell. Shows they got really involved with the book, and took the characters to heart.


The Girl in the Glass Tower  by Elizabeth Fremantle was rated “very good “ by Warwick Daytime WI.  The girl is Arbella Stuart, a likely successor of Elizabeth 1 , whose life was tragically short.  The characters were very well illustrated, and the book brought a little-known period of history to life.

If you’re interested in history, then don’t forget the Warwick Word’s History Festival , 2-8 October 2017.


Trains and Lovers  by Alexander McCall Smith, is an excellent book for Bishop’s Tachbrook  group. They thought it sensitively written and thought-provoking.


Excellent writing by Margaret Forster made How to measure a Cow a favourite for St Peter’s Pastimes in Leamington; and lots of facts in The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson entertained Limetree Village Group in Rugby.


Happy Reading All !
