We’ve each chosen the five books on our bedside stack this summer, reply to this email to tell us what’s on your list!
I really enjoyed Adelaide-based award-winning writer, Victoria Hannah’s debut novel, Kokomo, and this is set to be even better.

Tissues packed.
Ok here’s something a little lighter, a revenge comedy set in the 50s! Elizabeth Zott is a talented research chemist in a full-on male-dominated industry, determined to quietly rise to greatness despite the odds. It’ll be a TV show soon!
