Ahead of a well deserved summer break, here are the books the office will be getting stuck into over the next few weeks.


Dark Money: The hidden history of millionaires behind the rise of radical right by Jane Mayer

The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department fails to Prosecute Executives by Jesse Eisinger

Re-reading You’re an Animal Viskovitz! By Alessandro Boffa – a brilliant set of short-stories, which remind me about how every generation needs to seek solutions to the same old issues.

Otherwise, I plan to catch-up with my series, I really have liked recently Hotel Beau Sejour (Flemish), GLOW and the Good Fight.



Selection Day by Aravind Adiga

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney

Smile by Roddy Doyle

I also recently finished reading A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon King – would really recommend that one.



The EU Flow: from EU policy to EU law and back by Eric Akse (digital only)

A secret sisterhood: the hidden friendships of Austen, Bronte, Eliot and Woolf by Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - the screenplay



The Adversary by Emmanuel Carrere – a true life story of the double life of a respectable doctor, 18 years of lies, five murders and the extremes to which ordinary people can go.

Re-reading Lint by Steve Aylett – the funniest book I’ve ever read.

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel across the street from the Kremlin in 1922.



The people vs Tech by Jamie Bartlett

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
