Book Recommendations From Team Twiin For This Autumn
We so often spend so much time switching between screens, closing the work laptop and settling down to watch something on TV! Books have become a much needed escape for many of us during the past year, and the best part is that there's something for everyone. 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 often uncertain outside world! 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 Autumn. So let’s dive into the team’s book recommendations...


Georgia, Twiin Store Stylist

 
Dune by Frank Herbert
An incredibly engaging classic for sci-fi lovers everywhere! It’s got giant sand worms, many a battle and leaves you completely immersed in Herbert’s fantastical universe, away from the reality of a drizzly autumn day. Read it now before Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated film adaptation comes out later this year (featuring a dazzling Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet).

The Thursday Murder Club, by Richard Osmand
You can keep your self-help books and highbrow reads - this is the only kind of story I want to read on a grey and cold Autumn evening! The story follows four pensioners, who live in a retirement village and investigate unsolved murders, but when someone is murdered on their doorstep, they find themselves in the middle of their first, live case. It is warm, funny and filled with engaging characters. I couldn’t put it down and was sad to finish it!

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This book was such a dream to read. The author transported the reader back to the seventies and each character’s back story sucked you into their world and their view. It was amazing and also loosely meant to be based on Fleetwood Mac! Such a dream boat book… I laughed out loud and felt the torture of unrequited love all in the 2 days it took me to devour it!


Jarayd, Head of Retail


The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Hellig
Heroine Nix has grown up on her father’s ship The Temptation, a boat that can traverse time and reality to travel to the past, the future and even mythical locations. Her father is on the hunt for a map that could potentially rewrite the past and Nix’s very existence. An epic adventure story that explores the themes of family, time and fate. Super easy to get lost in.


Imogen, Social Media Manager


Friendshipping: The Art of Finding Friends, Being Friends, and Keeping Friends by Jenn Bane and Trin Garritano
You might have heard of the Friendshipping podcast by Jenn and Trin (if you haven't, be sure to give it a listen!), and during lockdown daily walks this quickly became my ultimate fave! When I found out the podcast was coming to an end, I knew I had to pick up a copy of this book. A great read for anyone looking to navigate friendships with advice given in an amusing and endearing way, including anecdotes peppered throughout. This book was definitely needed for me as I move into my mid-twenties right as we enter back into "normal" life - reconnecting with old friends and hanging out irl rather than over zoom!
