CNA’s top winter reads

With so many brand-new books being released every week for every genre, it is quite difficult to decide what to read. Well, CNA wants to help make it just a little bit simpler for you – have a look at our top selection for June!


Adult Fiction

We choose: Room by Emma Donoghue

Why: The story captures the unique relationship between a young boy and his mom while they are kept in isolation. The book was recently made into a movie starring Brie Larson, who went on to win an Oscar for best actress! This is definitely a must-read and then a must-watch.

Our other choice: Property of a Noblewoman by Danielle Steel

Why: She writes for her avid fans, who will stop at nothing to get the latest from the seasoned author. So, if you love all things Danielle Steel, you’ll surely love this one.


We choose: The BFG by Roald Dahl

Why: First published in 1982, the Big Friendly Giant character first appeared in the book, Danny the Champion of the World, published in 1975. These classic tales from Roald Dahl have been passed down through generations, and remain some of the best-loved kids’ fiction. To make it even more interesting, The BFG movie, directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg, hits the big screen on 1 July 2016!

Adult Non-fiction

We choose: Simply Delicious by Zola Nene

Why: She is the chef who wakes us up every morning with the most delightful, tasty treats on the Expresso morning show, and turns our early morning frowns upside down. Her cookbook contains recipes that express her personal journey of food discovery.

Young Adult Fiction

We choose: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Why: It is time to relive Bella and Edward’s love story again. This special tenth anniversary edition includes the original novel, as well as exclusive new bonus content. The greatest thing about Twilight is how we have all fallen in love with the story’s amazing characters. Are you team Jacob or team Edward?
