MY 5 FAVOURITE READS OF LOCKDOWN #1, 2020

As we careen gracelessly into Lockdown 2 here in the UK in the year of our Lord 2020, I see a lot of people pledging to use their newfound free time to engage with their hobbies. Reading is definitely up there as a top pick, which had got me feeling reminisce-y. So I thought I would look back on some of the cracking reads I devoured during our first 2020 lockdown, and maybe give some of you out there a few ideas of what to pick up.

It’s a great companion to my novel and I love the interactive element it brings. I love that with this age of technology I can bring a new aspect to my story, and I hope you enjoy browsing my vision board. . _________________________ The ads below help to pay for this website.
