Book Club: The Testaments

Our most recent Zoella Book Club read was The Testaments, Margaret Atwood's long-awaited sequel to The Handmaid's Tale.

The novel takes place in the republic of Gilead, 15 years after the ambiguous events of The Handmaid’s Tale. Here, Atwood unpacks even more disturbing secrets of the dystopian underworld through three narrative accounts from Aunt Lydia, a Gilead girl named Agnes and a Canadian girl named Daisy. 

Find out whether The Testaments got a ‘Praise Be!’ from us, or whether it left us hoping for a quick and painless Mayday rescue…

Our next read is NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty – ‘From the number one best-selling author of Big Little Lies, Nine Perfect Strangers is the latest eagerly anticipated page turner from Liane Moriarty.

Nine stressed city dwellers, each hiding an imperfect life, set about getting some R & R at a wellness retreat cut off from the outside world. Watching over them is the resort’s director, a woman who will stop at nothing to transform these tired bodies and minds…

Described as hilarious, disturbing and poignant, could this be the best of Moriarty so far? We’re looking forward to finding out!’
