Better Reading: Book of the Week
The Story of Our Life by Shari Low
Shari Low brings us a story of grown-up love and relationships, with all their highs lows and surprising entanglements.
Flipping between past and present, his perspective and hers, The Story of Our Life is a funny, wry and poignant journey from the heady joy of young love to the complications of married life. Shari Low has taken a likeable couple in refreshingly relatable directions.
Colm and Shauna have been happily married for fifteen years. Sure they work too much. And parenthood and running your own business get in the way of romance. But they are still as much in love as those first few weeks, when they each knew they’d met ‘the one’.
With their best friends Dan and Lulu’s marriage about to blow sky high and Colm suffering from worrying headaches, things are about to change. So the question is, can love at first sight really last forever?

The top ten fiction list is absolutely filled with some big names, such as the new Michael Connolly, and much loved Margaret Atwood. New to the non-fiction list is Dunkirk by Joshua Levine, the history behind the motion picture by Christopher Nolan. As always, the kid's list is an excellent range of YA and childrens' books.
Kids' Series of the Week: Super Moopers by Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar
Super Moopers is a loveable, hilarious new series from Sally Rippins Presents, written by Fiona Harris and illustrated by Scott Edgar. Reminiscent of Dr Seuss and the Mr Men series, Super Moopers is the perfect bridge between a picture book and junior fiction, and will keep young ones giggling and their parents entertained.
Super Moopers is set in Moopertown, a fantastical strange place where every citizen is incredibly individual. They're different colours, shapes, and sizes, and they all have incredibly different personalities. Everyone in Moopertown is special, and everyone is special in a different way!
In the first four books, we're introduced to four of the characters from Moopertown. There's Dramatic Dom, who finds everything dramatic - good and bad. Musical Markus loves to sing - but not everyone agrees! Nervous Nellie finds that a lot of things in Moopertown make her nervous, and Giggling Gertie giggles at everything - even things that aren't funny!
