Henpicked’s book of the month for November 2018…
Thank you for all your book reviews, interesting discussion about The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes by Ruth Hogan – some of us loved it, some of us didn’t.
We do wonder if the fact that we loved The Keeper of Lost Things influenced how we felt about it. For some of us, we wanted to revisit the characters of that book.

For this month, we’re looking at an author we’ve not covered before and a different genre, it is a thriller? Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – a New York Times Top Ten Bestseller.
Here are the reviews:
A free spirit shakes up a complacent community in this wry, beautifully observed novel…One of Ng’s strengths is that she makes virtue and normality as fascinating as venality and eccentricity…It is beautifully written (The Times)
It’s hard to sum up in this limited space just how fabulous this book is – but trust us, you do not want to miss it. It explores mother-daughter relationships, teen angst, race, love and more, and there’s a rumbling corker of a plot twist….Totally unforgettable (Heat’s Unmissables)’Subtle and poignant’ Good Housekeeping
‘To say I love this book is an understatement…It moved me to tears‘ Reese Witherspoon
‘Beautifully written, completely charming, and extremely wise on the subject of adolescence and influence’ Nick Hornby
We hope you enjoy it!
