Warning signs presented themselves from the start. Flashing like the neon displays in Piccadilly Circus, they couldn’t have advertised things more clearly. But Abbie was too troubled to see clearly. Too damaged to see the dangers Tony Sharpe brought into her life. Until the day he pushed her too far.

AJ's Reading Corner

An online book club for the busy person - let's get reading!



If, like me, you love the opportunity and excuse to escape into a 'good read', then you'll love my online book club, AJ’s Reading Corner. We're a friendly group, and each month we chat about the books we've read in addition to our latest book club title! We keep each other motivated to take that 'me time' that reading gives us.


Our monthly book club picks are from across genres and are ones that make us look forward to bedtime – never ones where reading every paragraph proves a mental challenge. Each month, a club member receives a free copy of the following month’s title, and there’s plenty of reading inspiration flying around from our members, plus quizzes and competitions from me. And don’t worry, there’s no pressure to read every book every month. Oh, and what goes on in the club, stays in the club!


Click on the link below, and come and say hi. I look forward to welcoming you personally.

  • I love this book club for so many reasons. The variety of book recommendations we all make; AJ's fun 'guess the book' emojis; having the chance to read the questions on each month's book and reflect before answering; a friendly group that encourages one another; AJ's great choice of books. I joined before lockdown, but it's been even more of a bonus during this time. I'm sure I'll be a long-term member.

  • I am LOVING my first ever experience of a book club!! Nice to review books and be able to ‘chat’ online to like-minded people. It's rewarding to read books outside of my comfort zone and usual genre. Also, I am really enjoying reading some of the books the others are recommending in this club.

  • I love AJ's virtual book club! The titles so far have been varied and so interesting to read. It's so great to connect and discuss books with fellow book lovers! The questions are always thought-provoking, and I love learning about other people’s experiences with the same book.

  • I absolutely love being in AJ’s Reading Corner. I read every day, even if it’s only a page or two, and often struggle to decide what book to read next, so to have someone chose for me has been fabulous!

    The chosen titles have been from different genres and topics but all with such interesting plots or characters. I have thoroughly enjoyed every one. AJ asks such thought-provoking questions at the end of the month and in such a way that there is no right or wrong answer- just opinion and ideas, so I don’t feel embarrassed to express my thoughts and really enjoy reading other people’s.

  • Joining AJ’s Reading Corner has been a bright new light in my life. I have (finally!) joined Facebook to be a part of it.

  • I absolutely love AJ's Reading Corner.  It's been a great comfort, particularly through isolation, as it's such a friendly space. I've found myself reading books I wouldn't have previously thought about, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I'm a fast reader, so it's great to have a constant source of recommendations from both AJ and the other members. I thoroughly recommend it.  Thanks AJ
