House PR celebrated World Book Day yesterday by getting together and discussing their favourite books. It is often thought that you are what you read, so let’s see what our Housemate’s most loved books say about them.

Siobhan

The Goldfinch by Donna Tart

Anna Karenina was her first choice but decided she sounded too pretentious and has settled on The Goldfinch

Tim

This Boy by Alan Johnson

Tim described this book as a lovely memoir of a poverty-ravaged childhood – a heart-breaking and heart-warming story at the same time. He’s a softie really!

Camilla

We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves: A Novel by Karen Joy Fowler

Camilla cries at almost everything, but perhaps cried reading this book the most.

Jess

The Hearing Trumpet by Leonora Carrington

Typical Goldsmiths student, Jess, has gone for what she describes as a “feminist surrealist masterpiece”. I’d like to point out that her first answer was actually; “any of the Goosebumps series…”

Ginny

Outliers by Malcolm Caldwell

A business read chosen by our PR guru.

Caroline

Big Sam: My Autobiography by Sam Allardyce 

Being a life-long fan of Sam, Caroline can really appreciate the depth of this great read.

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” – Oscar Wilde
