The Tattooist of Auschwitz
by Heather Morris
IN 1942, LALE SOKOLOV arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.
Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale – a dandy, a Jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer – it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did too.
So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust – the love story of the Tattooist of Auschwitz.
Oh My God What A Complete Aisling
by Emer Mclysaght & Sarah Breen
LIVING ‘DOWN HOME’ with Mammy and Daddy, Aisling commutes to her pensionable job in Dublin and stays two nights a week with her boyfriend of seven years, John.
But she wants more. She wants a ring on her finger. She wants the hen night with the Willy straws. She wants the big house with the utility room of her dreams.
When a week in Tenerife doesn’t result in a proposal, Aisling decides she’s had enough. It’s time for a change. A new start, a love triangle (well, more of a square) and some home truths force Aisling out of her comfort zone and into a life she never imagined.
The Rooster Bar
by John Grisham
THEY DREAMED OF CHANGING the world. Instead they’re facing a mountain of debt and no hope of a future. Mark, Todd and Zola are starting to realise it’s not even worth graduating from law school.
They’re better off hanging out at The Rooster Bar, plotting how to dodge the loan sharks. But maybe there’s another way. Maybe they know enough about the law to pass as lawyers.
Because it turns out the crooked hedge fund billionaire who owns their law school also runs the bank that arranged their student loans. And it’s time justice was served. Even if that means taking on the FBI…
IF YOU MISSED this series on television it really is a must see.

When he is assigned to protect the ambitious and powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawkes), Budd finds himself torn between his duty and his beliefs. Responsible for her safety, could he become her biggest threat.
