Reading List

Readers’ Club

This is my personal book club. I am an avid reader!! I love all genres of literature – poetry, prose and drama. I am also not attached to a particular age group either ( I normally read the books I buy for my young niece before she gets it, to ensure it is worth her time).

Some of my all time favourite authors are Shakespeare, Chaucer, Jane Austen and Jean Rhys to name a few. I am also a great promoter of Caribbean and Postcolonial writers, who are often overlooked.

Each month I will update my recommended reading list with a new book in hopes that you will read it and leave your comments/ critiques about it.
