This week, our Featured Read was The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion. From the bestselling author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect  comes a heartwarming story of lost love and second chances.  This book is the perfect pick-me-up for the weekend and we definitely recommend it! Here’s what other readers thought:

“Loved it! Brave, honest and touching – I couldn’t put it down.” – Irena, Goodreads

“I bought this book a few days ago and I can’t put it down! This book is thought provoking and intelligent. Everyone should give this book a read.” – Fida, Indigo

“If you have ever loved and lost, experienced heartache, betrayal and the joy of connection, this one is for you! The master of human relationships, the author who carves characters from the deepest place and with the words that draw you in, Graeme Simsion’s latest novel will delight you!” – Suzanne, Amazon
