Book Review – Boyfriend Material

By Alexis Hall,

Boyfriend Material appears to be a campy rom com that ticks off every romance trope ever. But don’t be fooled! This is actually a thoughtful deconstruction of the fake dating trope. It will make you laugh until your face aches, then spend days pondering over it once you’ve finished reading.

Book Review – The Authenticity Project

Cover image for The authenticity project / Clare Pooley.

By Clare Pooley

This story is about a solitary green notebook that brings together six strangers and leads to unexpected friendship and even love. ‘Everybody lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth?’ This is the question that Julian Jessop, an eccentric, seventy-nine artist, poses within a pale green exercise book that he labels The Authenticity Project, before leaving it behind in Monica’s Café. The truth in life is not as beautiful as you expect, or ugly sometimes. Only if you accept it, can you start to improve it. Be real and sincere, be caring and loving, the world around you will be a better one.
