From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.
I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
This week, I'm going to showcase The Rose Petal Beach
There has been quite a buzz around Dorothy Koomson lately as her book The Ice Cream Girls has been made into a three part drama on ITV. I have actually just started reading The Ice Cream Girls and I'm really enjoying it so far. The Rose Petal Beach is Koomson's latest novel and I look forward to reading to more of her books in the future.
The Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson
