Shameless Book Club

Books » Our lists » Shameless Book Club

Join the Shameless Book Club for recommendations and bookish discussions with bookworms (and The Space Between authors) Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews. At the end of each month the gals put together a bumper Shameless podcast episode to share their hot takes on the plot and announce the next book. Get involved by joining the conversation on Facebook, go on, you know you want to! 

Here are a few of their favourites:

Daisy Jones and The Six, Taylor Jenkins Reid
We hope your mum held onto her 1970s wardrobe because this imagining of an iconic rock band will make you feel so nostalgic (despite being born in 1994) you’ll be reaching for crop tops and flare jeans.

Ghosts, Dolly Alderton
Ahhhh! One for the sugar-lovers among us (that’s all of us, yes?). Ghosts is *the* rom-com read of 2020. If you’ve ever had your heart trampled on by a dickh*ad on a dating app, this will mend those wounds twice over.

Girl, Woman, Other, Bernardine Evaristo
We both read this as our first ever Shameless Book Club pick and ADORED IT. The syntax was intimidating to start, but the way Evaristo writes the stories (and gets in the heads) of twelve different characters is astonishing. Five stars. 

Rodham, Curtis Sittenfeld
The easiest way to sell this book to people is by saying this fictional account of Hillary Clinton’s life without BIll is so believable, we sometimes forget that none of it is true. 

The Space Between, Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews
Oh, hi: it’s us! We wrote this book for anyone lost in the chaos of their twenties. We wanted to capture it all as we were trudging through the thick of it: the magic, the uncertainty, the chaos. Oh, and the toxic workplaces...
