Do you love to read? If you’ve been searching for your next great book, then look no further. Here's a treasure chest of recommended reads, collated by our book club. Our group began 7 years ago, when our children were at kindergarten – 10 ladies, each taking a turn to select our monthly book and to choose a different venue for our discussion catch-up.

Where possible, the venue is aligned with the theme of the book. Over the years, we've met everywhere from rooftop cocktail bars to cosy English pubs, from inner city Greek restaurants to local pizzerias – half the fun is choosing the venue.

Below is our complete reading list, along with our discussion venues – listed by year. Given that we're avid readers, we'll often manage to squeeze in few additional (non book-club) novels each month, especially when we're on holidays – so you'll notice some books without discussion venues attached. If you click on each book, you'll find more details – and for the most recent novels, you can read our reviews. Overall, we've been lucky with our selections and we'd happily recommend most of them. Even so, there are some memorable stand-outs. In no particular order, these are our Top 7 books, the ones we can't stop thinking about…
