It’s not scientific. I don’t know what they are basing their decisions on. In some case it might be a good cover, in others it’s a favourite author, but almost always the books ideas turn out to be brilliant and I am grateful for their ideas.

So here are the Summer Reads my friends and followers came up with for Summer 2023!  If you click on these links and buy a book I may earn a few pence but it won’t cost you anymore!
