January book club: Remember Me This Way by Sabine Durrant
We know how much you guys enjoyed our book suggestions last year, so this year we want to get you guys more involved by turning our book club into, well ... a book club. At the start of each month I'll post a book and its synopsis on here (along with links to where you can buy it online) and we will all have a month to read it. At the end of the month I'll post my review — along with a couple of questions for you — and we can get a discussion started. We're trying to keep the release dates as recent as possible so we're not rehashing the classics (because this isn't year 12 English!) but if you have any requests for genres, feel free to hit up the comments and I'll hunt down something good.

The flowers are addressed to her husband. Someone has been there before her. Lizzie loved Zach. She really did. But she's starting to realise she didn't really know him. Or what he was capable of ...
