#LWLbookclub readers choice award!

Thank you to everyone who voted in our #LWLbookclub readers choice award last week. It’s been a year full of incredible books, shows, films and podcasts all written, directed or produced by talented women shaking up the industry. So without further adieu, here are your favourites of 2018:

#1 Killing Eve

With Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the helm, the BBC’s Killing Eve was one of this year’s biggest hits. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh made a dynamic duo we just couldn’t resist loving, even during their darkest moments. Ruthless assisations, frothy pink prom dresses and droll one liners - all without a hint of over-sexualisation or female stereotyping - made this exceptional series your no.1 title of 2018.

#2 Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Gail Honeyman certainly captured readers hearts with her unique and moving debut novel, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. From shining a light on the the devastating impact of loneliness to her carefully crafted characters and mischievously funny writing, Honeyman has proven herself as a master storyteller. We definitely weren’t the only ones who wanted to give Eleanor a great big hug by the end.

Dolly Alderton’s collection of life-affirming and laugh out loud anecdotes felt more like catching up with your best friend over a bottle of wine than a book. In an age of #couplegoals and impersonal Instagram updates, her rugged honesty and self-awareness made her memoirs a refreshing and relatable read. Setting the world to rights is no easy task, but Dolly manages it with her razor sharp writing and a healthy dollop of humour.
