The Book Club Review

By Kate and Laura Books

Kate and Laura on the books that get you talking. Every episode we sit down to chat about the books read most recently by our book clubs. What did we make of them? Did they spark debate? And whether we loved them or loathed them, we always try to answer the big question: were they great book club books? We don't want to spoil the books for you, we want you to be inspired to read them yourself, so we make every effort to ensure our shows are spoiler free.
