Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans

This week, we're reading...

Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans

Eccentric, hilarious, and devilishly witty, this wartime tale of an evacuee during the Blitz is a sheer delight. Noel Bostock is a ten-year-old orphan sent, for safety, to live with 36-year-old Vera Sedge in St Albans. Vera is a livewire with money-problems and a scheming mind. Noel provides the intelligence to her hair-brained ideas, and together they make a great team. These explosive characters will have you in fits of laughter as you fall head over heels for this book.

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

Our Endless Numbered Days is a chilling psychological drama. Eight year old Peggy lives a comfortable urban life until one day her father sweeps her off to a remote hut and tells her the world has ended. As they live a solitary existence in the wilderness, the creepiness winds tighter and tighter, notch by notch.




The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

The Little Paris Bookshop is a warm-hearted tale that celebrates a love of books and cautions us not to hold onto our past. Sweet, funny and touching, it tells the story of Jean Perdu, who sells books from his floating bookshop-barge on the Seine. News about a lost love emerges and Jean goes on elaborate quest to set matters right; a book about the comforts, and dangers, of nostalgia.




The Versions Of Us by Laura Barnett

The Versions Of Us by Laura Barnett

An alternate universe romance novel, The Versions Of Us explores how one small decision can change an entire life. It is effectively the same romance, told three ways. In each, Eva and Jim meet, or don’t meet, at Cambridge university in the 1950’s; each version is brilliantly realised yet vastly different to the others. Barnett’s technical achievement is astonishing, and all three stories are intriguing and moving.



The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan

The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan

First in a delightful and endearing new crime series set in India that will make you giggle while tackling serious issues of corruption. Recently retired detective Chopra inherits a baby elephant and unearths a murder mystery that spans all of Mumbai. Told with sparkling wit, and reminiscent of Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, the book will win you over completely.




A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell

A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell

The Alter family is a prestigious one, wealthy and powerful, its history is intertwined with that of the Twentieth century. The last remnants of this influential, New York family are three elderly sisters. As the sisters recount their chequered family history, they prepare to put an end to their unlucky bloodline. Incredibly funny, the book has already drawn comparisons to the films of Wes Anderson.

 




The Life and Death of Sophie Stark by Anna North

The Life and Death of Sophie Stark by Anna North

There are shades of Twin Peaks to The Life and Death of Sophie Stark. It tells the story of Sophie - incidentally and through anecdotes and stories. It is a dark, devastating and highly-intelligent work. It is an addictive read too - Sophie Stark emerges as an unusual woman whose devotion to film-making makes her a phenomenal director and a terrible person.




When the Doves Disappeared by Sophie Oksanen

When the Doves Disappeared by Sophie Oksanen

Already likened to the writing of Graham Greene, When the Doves Disappeared is a novel about ideals. It is also a novel about human frailty, corruption, duplicity and survival. The book centres on a fickle and unscrupulous Nazi-sympathiser and his unfaithful and haunted wife. It is a powerful, deeply moving story based in Estonia during and after World War Two.
