A. J. Finn
A gripping thriller – soon to be a film – about a woman who idly watches her neighbours and witnesses something horrifying. Almost as gripping is the story behind this book, of an author who lies and deceives at every turn – detailed here.
Lucy Gwendoline Taylor
A great collection of recipes for vegans, vegetarians, and people who want to cut down on meat – or not, as every recipe is flexible, and has suggested additions & subtractions.
That Reminds Me
A short, snappy novel-in-verse that charts the life of its narrator from birth to adulthood, taking in themes of identity, belonging, addiction, dependency, and race.
Author, poet, educator, and national treasure Michael Rosen has put together this small, vital, heart-breaking book about what happened to his family during World War II. It features interviews, travel accounts, letters, notes, and poetry.
A gripping YA novel set in a mine, deep below the surface, where people work, unquestioningly, for the Mayker. Until a newcomer arrives.. Reminiscent of Riddley Walker, this is a stunning debut.
