Welcome to the Just Jess Book Club!
Inspiring more people to read
I’ve been recommending my favourite reads on here for a few years now and I wanted to make it official! So, I set up the Just Jess Book Club with the purpose of inspiring more people to read. It brings me so much joy to hear that people have loved my recommendations and I want to spread that joy as far and wide as possible. Reading is something that should be accessible and available to all and that’s my mission. The first place to start – getting my recommendations out into the world. More coming soon.

Every summer I take a break from my monthly book club recommendations in place of my carefully crafted summer reading list. So, may I present to you my favourite book picks for summer 2020, including everything from romance and thrillers to non-fiction and personal development.Read More
This month’s pick is called The Switch by newcomer Beth O’Leary. The Switch is the heartwarming tale of Leena and her grandmother, Eileen. In need of a change they decide to swap lives for 2 months. The Switch is full of laugh out loud moments, relationship meltdowns and a whole lot of love. It is what I would describe as the perfect feel-good summer read!Read More
