#TFBookClub reads “Exquisite” set in the LAKE DISTRICT

19th August 2017

#TFBookClub September/October 2017

Our first three outings for the #TFBookClub have been a great success. We have been #OnLiteraryLocation with Rosanna Ley’s The Little Theatre By The Sea (SARDINIA), we have explored the sense of history in PRAGUE, reading Prague Nights by Benjamin Black, and we have been on a real adventure to CENTRAL AMERICA with Maile Meloy’s Do Not Become Alarmed.

Exquisite by Sarah Stovell is set in NORTHUMBERLAND and the LAKE DISTRICT. It was recommended as one of the top reads Summer of 2017!


Come and join us reading this book! It is a chilling, exquisitely written and evocative thriller set in the Lake District, centring on the obsessive relationship that develops between two writers. One already has it all, the other is drifting through life….

To get the ball rolling, the publisher has kindly offered the #TFBookClub a number of paperback copies (UK only) and a number of digital copies (via NetGalley) for those who prefer that format, and for those who are outside the UK.

If you would like to apply for a copy to read along with us during September and early October 2017, just leave a COMMENT below about your thoughts on the Lake District… it’s a beautiful part of the world!

Please tell us whether you prefer paper (UK only) or digital or either – by midnight, 31st August 2017. The first names out of the hat on SATURDAY 1st September 2017 will be sent copies by the publisher. After that we can all get stuck in and share our thoughts over the subsequent weeks.

We will be in touch at the beginning of September if you are one of our lucky readers! Don’t forget, applications close midnight, 31st August.

Thank you to Orenda Books for supporting the #TFBookClub.
