QUITE FRANKLY’S FAVOURITES : BOOKS

Here at Quite Frankly we’re all about ‘sharing is caring’ when it comes to creativity. That means a lot of the time when we’re not down a rabbit hole of production, we’re nose deep in books, crying in theatres (true story) or bopping along to the latest podcast phenomenon.

To further our (and hopefully your) coffee kitchen chats, we’ve collated a list below of our latest and greatest recommendations. Week 2 has us chatting about the books we’re all reading.
