Book blog reviewing prize winning fiction, new releases and random recommendations. So the big question is: Have they improved? I think this is a fantastic choice and I am really pleased that this debut novel will reach a wider audience. Unfortunately the writing style grated on me so I gave up very quickly. This is a book I plan to try before the TV series begins. That is what shows like this are supposed to do. It will divide opinion, but I think that will make a very interesting discussion on the show.

The club is made up of three categories - Reading together, Reading by yourself and Fluent reader - with six book titles in each.

Mr Madeley said: "The cartoons are great fun and really make clear that these choices are aimed at a younger audience. Ms Finnigan added: "Reading from an early age is something that we always encouraged with our own children and we feel very strongly that this addition to the book club is an important and exciting one. Booktrust chief executive, Viv Bird, said: "The launch of the Richard and Judy Children's Book Club will raise confidence around sharing books at home and help to guide parents and carers in choosing the right books with, and for, their children.

The 8 books are:. Each book contains extra bonus content too, such as reading group questions, interviews, inspiration behind the book, etc. Digital content can also be accessed via the QR code in the back of each book. The books run across varying genres, including crime, thrillers, tear-jerkers, biographical and more. The books are personally read and selected by the couple and, I must say, they have brilliant taste. I never used to be a fan of Richard and Judy, however, just lately I am finding that they are going up in my estimation, as basically genuine people, who seem to have a passion for the books they discuss and recommend.
