It’s June already and if you’re still looking for more books to add to your list, author Diksha Basu lists five books that she is going to read and why you should too!
1. And Now We Have Everything by Meaghan O’Connell

This needs no explanation. Everyone should read everything Gary writes.
If Porochista’s honesty on social media is anything to go by, this memoir on life with chronic illness is going to be impossible to put down.
Parenthood has sliced and diced the hours of my day into completely new and often smaller increments so I’m turning to poetry a lot these days and really looking forward to Ranjit Hoskote’s new book.
