Best Book: Afterwards – Rosamund Lupton
As usual, Lupton fails to disappoint! “Afterwards” is only her second novel, but it’s a page turning cracker!
Worst Book: The Tiger’s Wife – Tea Obreht
You have no idea how much it pains me to deem Obreht’s Orange Prize Winning novel as the worst book of October, but it was. I expected so so much out of it, being as it won the Orange Prize and created a lot of buzz. Sadly, it fell (way) short of my expectations and I found that I had to force myself to actually finish it.
