Book Recommendations From Team Twiin
As we’re all spending our time switching between screens, books have become a much needed escape for many of us during a tumultuous time. From the best novels to read, to the most gorgeous coffee table additions, we know our 2021 books are there to comfort and distract us from the outside world we’re actively avoiding at the moment! So, if you’re asking yourself “what book should I read?” wonder no more as Team Twiin are here to give you the lowdown on the best books you just have to read this Winter. So let’s dive into the team’s book recommendations...

Ayla, Digital Marketing Manager

Calling Major Tom by David M Barnett
The story begins with 'Miss Gladys' accidently calling grumpy Major Tom who is on a one way voyage to Mars... Very different to what I would usually read - super quirky and the perfect escapism. Amazing characters a lot of us can identify with. The perfect feel-good book before bed for me.

Aine, Commercial Director

Lost Dog by Kate Spicer
I read this in 2 sittings, could not put it down. Kate completely and perfectly describes the total and perfectly simple emotions of dog ownership and falling in love with your pet. When Wolfy goes missing, she brings you on the journey with her. The love, the torment and the joy and relief when he is found. Sorry for the spoiler, but I don’t think any of us could take any more bad news! It is so well-written and beautiful. 10/10!

Jarayd, Head of Retail

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
This book took me a few chapters to get into, there are so many twists and turns it’s hard to keep track but once you get there it’s a ride worth taking. I haven’t read a mystery book that I couldn’t see the end coming a mile off for a while. Perfect if you love a psychological thriller!

Imogen, Social Media Manager

Skincare: The Ultimate No-Nonsense Guide by Caroline Hirons
Okay, okay, this probably isn't the escapist fiction book you were after, but after receiving this book over Christmas I've totally overhauled my skincare routine and it was the best thing I did all of 2020! I love Caroline's approach to common sense, ingredients based skincare and focusing on your skincare routine as a moment of self care and indulgence! Not to mention the awesome bright yellow cover looks great on my bedside table.
