A personal choice made by me, Helen Hollick,
(founder of Discovering Diamonds)
from books I have shortlisted for my personal reading 
My criteria for a 'winner' is:
* Did I thoroughly enjoy the story?
* Would I read it again?
* Is it a 'keeper'

MAY 2020
just the one this month:

April 2020 
My chosen JOINT winner
(because I enjoyed them both)

and 

MARCH 2020

 Not a fast-paced action 'who-dun-it' , but  sophisticated measured read with some wonderful descriptive writing

I can't resist a Melissa Addey - again wonderful descriptive writing

Book of the Month
It might seem odd to select a novel that made me cry. This one did because it is based on real life - so many died, so horribly. I truly think that this book should be compulsory reading in all schools - no, for everyone - so that we never, never, forget what happened to the Jewish people during WWII

January 2020

Runner-Ups  
two because I have enjoyed
the entire series of both these novels
