Jen and Sanne [booksandquills] recommend Apocalyptic Fiction
I teamed up with the lovely Sanne [from Books&Quills] to recommend some of our favourite apocalyptic fiction. We had a lot of fun filming this video, and we'll get together again in the future to talk about dystopian literature, too - clearly we like all the really uplifting genres ;). You can watch the video over here. We also filmed a video over on her channel, too. :) Hope you're all having a lovely week! xx

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
