How I loved this novel, it’s heartbreaking yet warming, beautifully deep yet has a light touch, and is vibrantly colourful yet gentle too. A reading list finds its way to people needing a helping hand. Prepare yourself for a number of emotions, as mental health, grief, fear, and loneliness are written into the pages with huge compassion and empathy. This book truly spoke to me, it is full of love and hope, and highlights inclusivity and kindness. Oh, and that cover, just gorgeous! There are a number of characters waiting to meet you, however the pairing and friendship of Aleisha and Mukesh sits centre stage and creates an inspiring glow. Sara Nisha Adams introduces the books from the reading list with great care and attention, ensuring that while they are discussed by the characters there are no spoilers. So if you haven’t had the pleasure of reading them, you’ll be enticed into finding a copy. One of my favourite sections declares: “When you really like a book, you need to read it again! To relive what you loved and find out what you missed before. Books always change as the person who reads them changes too”. I really can recommend The Reading List with my heart and soul, and I’m glad to declare it a LoveReading Star Book.
