The Tsundoku Squad - Meet The Members

Over on Twitter I’m in a lush book group, we call ourselves the Tsundoku Squad. There are 13 of us. It all started with Em and Lisa starting up the Netgalley November group and hashtag, where we all tried our best to get through as much of our Netgalley backlog as we could. It moved on from there to become our little Twitter book group as we enjoyed chatting to each other (and making each other’s tbr piles a little bigger lol). Now we choose a book a month, read a portion each week and have a chat every Saturday night. Make sure to check over on Em’s Blog where she posts updates as to what we are all thinking collectively about our monthly reads.

I’m Dee a book loving, tattooed mum of two from Newcastle. My newest favourite book of all time is Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart and I recommend and shout about it to anyone who will listen! Another favourite hobby is devouring all that Netflix has to offer.

Em lives in Devon and when she can pull herself away from staring at her gorgeous rainbow bookshelves or work, her favourite way to spend a day is under a blanket reading a good crime/thriller book. Her favourite book of all time is Matilda (but whose isn’t). When she isn’t reading she enjoys exploring Dartmoor.

Kath lives in South Wales and is a Bookseller. Her favourite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice. Her long standing favourite genre is Crime although she has recently been reading a lot more translated fiction and books from small independent publishers. When Kath isn’t reading, she is most likely to be found either gardening or taking photos for her Instagram page.

Kate is from Cheshire. She is a Mum, book blogger and teacher with a particular love for historical and crime fiction – even better if is crime fiction set in the past! Favourite book is potentially A Room with a View by E M Forster, but equally possible to be Polo by Jilly Cooper! She has a self-declared problem with Fruit Gums.

Emma is a mum of two from Stroud slowly trying to get through her never ending TBR. She will try and enjoy most genre except for Horror; as a self-confessed scaredy-cat, this is one she avoids.

Bex is a mum to three very loud boys and a part time student, it’s a miracle she gets any reading done at all. Her favourite genres are thrillers, crime, historical fiction but will give anything except horror (another self-confessed wimp). She loves hiding in the bath with a G&T and a book where the boys can’t get her!

Wendy is also from Devon, a mum of two teens and a full time teaching assistant. Her favourite genre is Historical Fiction and her favourite book of all time is the Book Thief. An important rule is that she must have a cuppa’ when reading at all time.
