Last Thursday, on World Book Day, despite every day being a book day for us at Team Novelicious, I thought I'd ask my colleagues what they were reading 'right now'. Yes, I wanted to know to write this post, but also, I genuinely wanted to know. I always like to hear what everyone's current read is. I find it fascinating and it's a great way to discover books and titles I haven't come across before. And if you're reading this post I bet you feel the same too, right?
