The Radleys
The Radleys | Matt Haig
30 posts | 46 read | 52 to read
Meet the Radleys. Peter, Helen and their teenage children, Clara and Rowan, live in a typical suburban English town. They are an everyday family, averagely dysfunctional, averagely content. But, as their children have yet to find out, the Radleys have a devastating secret. In this moving, thrilling and extraordinary portrait of one unusual family, The Radleys asks what we grow into when we grow up, and explores what we gain and lose when we deny our appetites.

Loved it. This was a really fun read and not my conventional type of book. The chapters are short and the story is fast-paced and engaging! There's more to the Radley's than meets the eye...

Last night of our holiday and I've made it about half way through this one. Absolutely loving it so far - glad I acted on the man in Waterstones recommendation!

This was my first Matt Haig and I will definitely be returning! This novel kept me engaged and reading quickly to find out what would happen. You know a book is good when you think about reading it when you have other things to do! This isn‘t a typical vampire novel. This novel had much to say about morals and values, secrets, and relationships. Loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

ReadingRover I read The Labrador Pact by him earlier this year and really liked it. I think I‘ll try this one or the Humans next. 8mo

I never, in a million years, would have picked up a book that I knew was about vampires. However, this was the third book in a row I read by #MattHaig !! And I really enjoyed it...seems different from what I imagined a “vampire story” to be 😊 4/5 🌟

Kaye Sounds great. I need to pick this one up too 😊. 1y

I'm slightly embarrassed about liking a vampire book so much, but this was a fun one! Loved the message of the book, and use of metaphor throughout.

@Kaye this is how good your book choice was...about to start my third #MattHaig in a row!!

Kaye Wow, that‘s great. 😊 The Humans was just so clever. I‘m glad you are finding others to try also. I have a couple others in audio but have yet to start them. I‘m gonna have to give them a try. 👍 Thanks for the reminder. 1y

Finally the end of a busy and exhausting work week! Haven‘t gotten much reading done this week, but purposely planned Sunday to be a Do Nothing Day. Still going back and forth between vampires and whiney adult children.

When you can‘t figure out where your bookmark went, so you use whatever‘s around, which is usually another book.

Ruri_kaichou This happened to my daughter a few nights ago. Except, she's 4 so she didn't realize it was not a good idea to use a book bigger than the book she is reading as a bookmark 😅 so I have get a sheet of paper instead 🤣🤣🤣 1y
hgrimes @Ruri_kaichou HAHAHA!!! Love that story! Too cute!! 😂 1y
SandyW I've done that... more than once (*hangs her head in shame*) 😲 1y

Continuing my journey through Matt Haig‘s bibliography! Some of his books have some mixed reviews, including this one, but I am personally loving his work, his style, and his creativity. My 6th Matt Haig.

I‘ve just finished #ReasonsToStayAlive and I fell in love with #MattHaig‘s writings so much, that I have to start reading his fiction books. #TheRadleys #YAFiction #WhatIAmReading

Kaye He is great. Such talent. 1y
hello.itslauren @Kaye I loved Reasons To Stay Alive so i‘m looking forward to this so much 😍 1y
Kaye I read The Humans and was amazed by it. I bought the one you did plus I have another one called Dead Fathers Club or something. It‘s in a bag in my bedroom closet and I‘m too lazy to dig it out. 1y

Loved this, this is a fun exciting witty novel. Definitely not your average run of the mill Vampire story. This is about a suburban family of vampires even though their teenage children are unaware off who they really are until one eventful night where nothing will ever be the same again. #matthaig #vampires

I loved this book! It was a quick read. I don't want to stop reading it once I started. I can't remember the last time I wanted to sit all day and read a book cover to cover. The book is about a family of abstaining vampires. The parents haven't told the children they are vampires, leading to the events of the book.

I had never heard of this author or book, but between the cover art and the fantastic blurb, I had to have it. Still haven't read it yet, but it is a impulse buy-causing blurb for sure!

"One night, when Clara finds herself driven to committing a bloodthirsty act of violence, her parents react with resignation rather than horror."

Die Radleys - Matt Haig 📗
Volle Punktzahl, weil mich das Buch trotz Voreingenommenheit überraschen und begeistern konnte. Ich bin froh, dass ich es entdeckt habe und nicht vor dem mittlerweile ausgelutschten Vampirthema zurückgeschreckt bin. Es gibt definitiv noch mehr da draußen als Glitzervampire 😉 zum Beispiel ein Cover, das im Dunkeln leuchtet.

Meine ausführlichen Buchgedanken gibt es jetzt auf meinem Blog Teestube🍵 tinkabeere.blogspot.de

Haig's book, The Humans, was one of the best books I have ever read, so my expectations were high for this one. A decent story about family and vampires.

The Radleys are just your normal everyday suburban family- except for one thing. They are vampires who choose to abstain. Also- they've neglected to tell their children the family history. Matt Haig is a wonderful author and this story about the cost of denying one's appetites is warm and funny and human. #recommendsday

MeganAnn Great pick for #recommendsday! I loved this book so much! 😍 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Barb1 we were just talking about this book today!! 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @CherylDeFranceschi thank you for posting this!! Definitely going to read this! I'm currently listening to To Kill a Mockingbird (only a short while in) and they mention a creepy family called the Radley's and I was wondering if Matt Haig was making a reference? 3y

Hoping this Dollar store deal has a happy ending. Been on a really depressing reading streak lately.
