Rather random but here are my 3 choices:
This is going to hurt - Adam Kay
Book Description
The often hilarious, at times horrifying and occasionally heartbreaking diaries of a former junior doctor, and the story of why he decided to hang up his stethoscope.
From the Inside Flap
97-hour weeks. Life and death decisions.
A constant tsunami of bodily fluids.
And the hospital parking meter earns more than you.

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's diaries provide a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.

The Good Daughter - Karin Slaughter
From the Inside Flap
The stunning new standalone, with a chilling edge of psychological suspense, from the No.1 bestselling author of the Will Trent and Grant County series.
Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind...
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy smalltown family life was destroyed by a terrifying attack on their home. It left their mother dead. It left their father - a notorious defence attorney - devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that shocking night.
Twenty-eight years later, Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer. But when violence comes to their home town again, she is plunged into a nightmare. Because the case triggers memories she's tried so hard to suppress, and the shocking truth about the crime which destroyed her family won't stay buried for ever...

SkagBoys - Irvine Welsh
Mark Renton has it all: he’s good-looking, young, with a pretty girlfriend and a bright future. But there’s no room for him in the 1980s and when his family starts to fracture, Mark’s life swings out of control. The way out is heroin. It’s no better for his friends – Spud Murphy is laid off from his job, Tommy Lawrence finds himself sucked into a life of petty crime, violence and the world of the psychotic Franco Begbie. Only Sick Boy seems to ride the current, scamming and hustling his way through it all. Exhilarating and moving, Skagboys charts their journey from likely lads to young addicts in a decade which changed Britain forever.

We are meeting on 18th June at the Kings Arms on Newcomen St at 7.30 to discuss The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry.

We are taking a book club break over the summer and still have to vote on the choice of book for September from the 3 proposed above by Jac. So come along and help us decide.

Next book club after this one will be on Monday 17th September.

Is book club still meeting this evening? Heard a rumour that it may be postponed due to all the pubs screening the england v tunisia football match.

The Kings Arms pub is heaving with footie fans, so I have decamped to the Slug & Lettuce on Borough High St. No TVs here!
