September is home to National Read a Book Day, and what do many of us like to do when we’re having a cuppa? Get stuck into a good read, of course! For us, nothing beats an autumn evening in with a big mug of our favourite tea and a gripping book (snuggly pyjamas optional, but recommended for those extra cosy vibes).

Whatever time of day you prefer to read a couple of chapters, we’ve put together a little list of some of our office favourites which may take your fancy, too…

our stop - laura jane williams

This is a real laugh-out-loud love story, about a lady called Nadia who catches a man called Daniel's eyes on the Northern Line every morning on their way to work. Think Metro's 'Rush Hour Crush' feature... but better!

nine perfect strangers - liane moriarty

This one is a Sunday Times Best Seller – it’s about nine ‘perfect’ strangers who are all hiding an imperfect life… oooh mysterious...

normal people - sally rooney

This one is set in the 2000s downturn period, and explores the complex friendship and relationship between two teenagers from very different backgrounds.

on the road - jack kerouac

This is a fab novel based on the authors travels across the US with his friends. It's become a classic text in American literary counterculture, set in the aftermath of the Second World War.

the alchemist - paulo coelho

This novel was originally written in Portuguese, but became widely translated and an international bestseller. It follows a young Andalusian shepherd in his journey to the pyramids of Egypt, after having a recurring dream of finding treasure there.

harry potter – jk rowling

It’s a given, really…
