When looking for good book recommendations it seems they are saturated, for women at least, with romantic novels and perhaps a thriller thrown in for good measure. To this I say no more! We are intelligent beings who need to be challenged with our reading material, no longer shall we hide our copy of 50 Shades Darker in shame. Let’s up our game and sink our teeth into […]
