The Blue Zones Kitchen by Dan Buettner

From Sardinia’s daily dose of beans, to regular helpings of miso soup and the use of dashi in Japan, to the healthiest breakfast in the world from Costa Rica, this book has captured traditional recipes from ‘blue zone’ countries – places around the world where people live the longest. Fascinating.


Grown Ups by Marian Keyes

A book that makes your head spin keeping up with three families and their epic dramas that are representative of life’s complexities. Good perspective on insecurities and how we measure ourselves, and insightful knowledge of eating disorders and their impact on mental and physical health.


Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith

Brilliant mystery by JK Rowling. I can’t give a lot away, but it is a pageturner. Part of the Strike series and centred around a detective agency that takes on a cold case, with personal relationships intertwined within the story, together with the challenges of managing an expanding business.
