This novel took me on an emotional rollercoaster in the best way possible. Sara Nisha Adams brings to life Aleisha - a summer job librarian - and Mukesh - a recent widower - who find themselves connected via a mysterious reading list that has made its way through their West London suburb of Wembley. You will follow these non-readers' lives as they discover the worlds hidden away in the pages of these classic novels. In turn, as the reader, you feel the same excitement for them as you become engrossed in their own lives and familial issues. The Reading List will leave you crying the happiest tears as Adams displays the power of community and asking for help. A wonderfully written story. ~ Reviewed by Connor Johnston
