Warmest regards<br />

Christine Roth<br />

As modern-day events unravel, books have never been a safer space<br />

to find solace and refuge from the struggles of everyday life. In<br />

cosies, amateur sleuths who are often overlooked by society get their<br />

chance to shine: the everyman solves crimes, puzzles and mysteries,<br />

possibly all while cuddling a pet, munching on biscuits and sipping<br />

tea. With autumn just around the corner and more chances to stay<br />

indoors and read, we’ve put together a list of the cosiest new releases,<br />

perfect for those first cold, crisp days after summer’s come and gone.<br />

From historical and paranormal fiction to senior citizens sleuths and<br />

closed-room mysteries, the books we’ve found are all so different<br />

while honouring traditional components of the cosy crime subgenre.<br />

1 The Last Devil to Die by Richard Osman<br />

Starting strong with the maestro of cosy crime, Richard Osman’s<br />

million-copy bestselling series Thursday Murder Club hands the four<br />

eighty-year-old retired friends another juicy mystery to solve. This<br />

time, in the attempt to protect a package, an antique seller, who also<br />

happens to be a friend, has been murdered. As they solve yet another<br />

murder, the gang of crime retirees are met with the intricacies of<br />

the drug trade and the complicated business of antique fraud. And<br />

Osman has cleverly laced into this novel questions surrounding the<br />

care of the elderly. A simultaneously funny and heart-breaking read<br />

in the much-loved series.<br />

2 The Murder Game by Tom Hindle<br />

Murder mystery parties are a much-loved trope in the world of cosy<br />

crime: multiple characters, all dressed-up in vintage outfits and a<br />

locked-room mystery are the ingredients to a killer recipe! As old<br />

friends meet at Hamlet Hall for a 1920s-themed New Year’s Eve<br />

murder mystery party, their roles are set. But their relationships<br />

are more complicated than they seem, and, as the fictional mystery<br />

begins to play out, one late-comer is found murdered. To solve the<br />

crime, the close-knit group members will inevitably begin to turn<br />

against each other, and the closed circle’s secrets will come undone.<br />

Told through multiple points of view with an unexpected plot twist<br />

at its end, this is the perfect nostalgic-feeling Sunday afternoon read.<br />

3 Grave Expectations by Alice Bell<br />

If you love some soft paranormal activity in your cosies and lots<br />

of humour, Grave Expectations by Alice Bell is the debut you won’t<br />

want to miss. This cosy brings together four very different characters:<br />

a medium called on to solve a murder that occurred in a very<br />

posh English family’s mansion, her ghost friend who has been by<br />

her side since she was seventeen, and the only two family members<br />

that definitely aren’t the murderer(s), a handsome ex-policeman and<br />

a non-binary teen. As they work together to solve the crime, Claire,<br />

the medium, walks on a fine line. She’s not a very skilled medium,<br />

and if her two new friends discover her best friend is a ghost who<br />

follows her everywhere, she might lose all her credibility … and her<br />

new friends.<br />

4 Three Card Murder by J. L. Blackhurst<br />

A closed-room mystery with not one but two female protagonists,<br />

two sisters leading opposite lives. Tess is a policewoman. Her<br />

half-sister, Sarah, a con artist. The two met late in life and never<br />

really got the chance to form a relationship. But that’s about to<br />

change, as Tess is assigned her first murder investigation, and the<br />

only person who can help her is Sarah. As the two sisters get to the<br />

bottom of the mystery murder, and their potential connection with<br />

the killer, prepare to be misdirected, illuded and surprised by a<br />

thrilling reveal at the end.<br />

basks in fictional drama, Hollywood glamour and exciting<br />

meetings with the likes of Laurence Olivier, Daphne du Maurier<br />

and Joan Fontaine, a murder needs solving in England, at the very<br />

premises that inspired the fictional story of Rebecca. Luckily, detective<br />

Archie Penrose is already on the scene. This book, full of real<br />

historical figures and with a hint of romance, is perfect for all lovers<br />

of historical cosies.<br />

with Conrad, Lulu is on her way to Oxford for a friend’s birthday.<br />

Everything goes to plan, until a murder, fire and art heist force<br />

Lulu – and her trusty pet – to solve the mystery. If you’re not a cat<br />

person, we promise this book will turn you into one!<br />

4 <strong>Bookmark</strong> Magazine Second feature

You’ve waded into some of the most<br />

explosive cultural and artistic questions<br />

of our time with this novel, particularly<br />

about cultural appropriation and exploitation,<br />

racism, diversity, tokenism,<br />

and who has the right to write about a<br />

particular subject or from a particular<br />

point of view. What inspired you to write<br />

it? And what gave you the courage to<br />

tackle issues that many writers and publishers<br />

are frankly terrified to address?<br />

Yellowface was one of those stories that<br />

dropped into my head fully formed, like<br />

Athena springs from Zeus’s skull. I like to<br />

joke with my friends that when God starts<br />

ringing, you pick up the phone. This has<br />

only happened to me twice in my life – the<br />

second time was when I got the idea for my<br />

next fantasy novel, Katabasis – and what<br />

happens next is I start writing like mad before<br />

the fire dies out. Of course there must<br />

have been a lot going on in my unconscious<br />

for that particular story to ferment like<br />

cyclical cynicism and the remarkable ability of the system to absorb<br />

the shockwaves of critique. If anything, the system only turns<br />

critique into another way to profit. Yellowface is a fundamentally<br />

pessimistic story, because it lays out this horrific scandal and then<br />

displays how that scandal in itself becomes another easily packaged<br />

consumer product. Who controls the narrative, really? When all<br />

the dust has settled, does anything ever really change? What would<br />

it take – how bad would things have to get – to really break down<br />

the system? In that sense Yellowface is not so thematically different<br />

from Babel, although their style and tone are worlds apart.<br />

Three years ago, there was an uproar about the book American<br />

Dirt, a bestselling novel about a Mexican immigrant mother<br />

and child, by a white American woman, a well-respected author,<br />

who claimed a minor amount of Latino heritage. Did that<br />

incident inform your book at all?<br />

Of course. I don’t think you could be a BIPOC author in publishing<br />

and not hear about it. It had a lot of us thinking about how diversity<br />

in publishing is often not a good-faith effort to engage with difference<br />

but to profit off of perceived distance.<br />

«Junie just witnessed her friend’s<br />

death, stole her manuscript and is heading<br />

towards fame and fun. Was it all<br />

worth it? Big gasps and tears running<br />

down my face from laughter.»<br />

Authors June Hayward and<br />

Athena Liu were supposed<br />

to be twin rising stars. But<br />

Athena is a literary darling.<br />

June Hayward is literally<br />

nobody. When June witnesses<br />

Athena’s death in a<br />

freak accident, she acts on<br />

impulse: she steals Athena’s<br />

just-finished masterpiece.<br />

“I wanted to write<br />

something that spoke<br />

to that cyclical<br />

cynicism and the<br />

remarkable ability of<br />

the system to absorb<br />

the shockwaves<br />

of critique.”<br />

it did. I recall it was in early 2<strong>02</strong>1, while<br />

publishing was still being rocked by the<br />

movements of late 2<strong>02</strong>0. The Publishing<br />

Paid Me social media campaign had taken<br />

off, folks were sharing and comparing<br />

advances, and there was a lot of chatter<br />

across the board about how publishers had<br />

let down their BIPOC writers and readers.<br />

There was a lot of promise of change from<br />

the top. But by the time I started drafting in<br />

2<strong>02</strong>1, you could tell – there was something<br />

in the air – that this change was never going<br />

to materialize in any meaningful way.<br />

What we saw instead were some shallow,<br />

cosmetic changes; ornamental nods towards<br />

diversity. A few token opportunities;<br />

a few big “BIPOC books of the year.” I wanted<br />

to write something that spoke to that<br />

Rebecca F. Kuang is the #1 New-<br />

York-Times-bestselling, Astounding-Award-winning,<br />

and Hugo-,<br />

Literatures at Yale.<br />

In response to charges of cultural appropriation and exploitation,<br />

publishers have started taking preemptive measures like<br />

using “sensitivity readers.” What are they? When and how are<br />

they used?<br />

I had a very good experience with authenticity readers while Babel<br />

was in production. I approached it not so much as a way to avoid<br />

trouble but as a way to deepen and enrich the text. I treated my readers<br />

as collaborators who helped make Babel a truly representational<br />

community effort. And they made the novel much better – I learned<br />

cultural and linguistic details that the novel would have suffered<br />

without. I think sensitivity reads go wrong more often when<br />

“I treated my readers as<br />

collaborators who helped make<br />

Babel a truly representational<br />

community effort.”<br />

authors and publishers are just trying to find someone to function<br />

as a scapegoat. “This book can’t be racist because we had a BIPOC<br />

sensitivity reader!” I think that the way June describes sensitivity<br />

reads in the novel is precisely the wrong way to go about things.<br />

There are some great contemporary debates about standpoint<br />

epistemology that get to the heart of why sensitivity reads aren’t a<br />

catch-all solution.<br />

Mrs Eliza Touchet, a Scottish housekeeper<br />

who has lived a privileged life with a<br />

religion has been used as a weapon against<br />

her since she was a little girl and has<br />

bestselling author of Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982<br />

Cho Nam-joo explores the female<br />

experience in Korea, which unsurprisingly<br />

doesn’t differ much to that of Western<br />

women. From childbirth and caregiving to<br />

growing old, to being hated, loved and<br />

hated again, to being sexually harassed and<br />

discriminated at work, this author<br />

scrutinised the collective experience of<br />

existing in the world as a woman. Her voice<br />

is raw yet funny, succinct yet so thoroughly<br />

descriptive and attentive to detail. And<br />

speaking of detail, we love that each story<br />

features a different version of “Miss Kim”,<br />

which is the Korean equivalent of a Jane<br />

Doe, hence the title Miss Kim Knows,<br />

suggesting any woman can relate to these<br />

stories. A brilliant and unphased take on<br />

womanhood.<br />

girls attending the same boarding school in<br />

19th century York – one an orphan heiress<br />

exiled from India and her British peers, the<br />

other a troublemaker and unconventional<br />

young woman. Thoroughly researched and<br />

leaving no detail to the imagination,<br />

Donoghue includes snippets of what awaits<br />

for them in the future, with Anne Lister<br />

becoming the well-known “Gentleman<br />

Jack”, and tells this story through the eyes<br />

of Eliza. A historical sapphic romance that<br />

also looks at racism, society and social<br />

hierarchy.<br />

imagined world called Castellane, two<br />

outcasts strike an unlikely romance, and<br />

together they will uncover a conspiracy<br />

that could set the wheels of war in motion<br />

for their city-state. Kel is an orphan whose<br />

sole purpose in life is to protect the Prince,<br />

while Lin is an Ashkar physician and part<br />

of a community shunned by society. What<br />

brings them together is Castellane’s<br />

underworld, where the rules of society<br />

don’t apply and a strange king has<br />

established power. Following the success of<br />

the epic Shadowhunter Chronicles, this first<br />

Urban Stories<br />

Cities are complicated, often made up of winding<br />

roads, messy and full of contradictions, but they’re an<br />

endless source of inspiration for authors.<br />

Text by Christine Modafferi<br />

Whether you love the city or loathe it, it’s bound to sweep you off your feet and welcome you.<br />

In the city, there are opportunities galore, and you can become whoever you wish to be. You<br />

can meet like-minded people. You’re surrounded by novelty, from new technology to new ideas<br />

being formed. You can struggle immensely and feel terribly lonely, but you’re never alone. And<br />

you can be different by being yourself, while always fitting in. Here are just some of our favourite<br />

literary interpretations of the cities around the world, from classics to new releases.<br />

1 Happy City by Charles Montgomery<br />

Before we jump into fictional stories about the big city life, let’s take a look at some of the<br />

non-fiction literature that has shaped our thinking around cities and that maps how they’ve<br />

impacted our individual lives as well as civilisation as a whole.<br />

In Happy City, published over ten years ago, the award-winning journalist Charles Montgomery<br />

challenges the way we view cities by mixing urban design analysis with scientific studies on<br />

happiness. What emerges is an inspiring study of architecture that debunks the belief that<br />

cities are the epicentre of the proverbial rat race and rather views them as a project towards<br />

happiness, referring back to the ancient Athenians, who brought democracy to life through the<br />

city. Montgomery studies many man-made creations in cities, from Copenhagen to Bogotá to<br />

Vancouver, suggesting that experiencing them is a form of mindfulness, self-care and living life<br />

more fully – a complete shift from the sadness of the suburbs, where we must rely heavily on<br />

our cars to get anywhere, from work to meetings with friends.<br />

2 Imagine a City by Mark Vanhoenacker<br />

Continuing in the vein of Montgomery’s celebration of the city, airline pilot and author of Skyfaring<br />

Mark Vanhoenacker writes about the places he’s travelled to and loved. Coming from the<br />

small New England town of Pittsfield, Vanhoenacker grew up dreaming of big cities. Today, as a<br />

pilot, he stops somewhere new each day, and Imagine a City is his love letter to the metropolises<br />

of the world he’s visited over the course of twenty years. Partly working as a travelogue and<br />

partly as a personal memoir, Vanhoenacker reflects on the great cities of our planet, from LA<br />

and Kuwait City to Jeddah and Sapporo. But if there’s one thing travel inspires, it’s the anticipation<br />

to get back to your hometown with a renewed appreciation for the familiar, and this book<br />

also includes nostalgic passages about home that will tug at your heartstrings.<br />

3 Ten Cities that Led the World by Paul Strathern<br />

Similarly to Imagine a City, Ten Cities that Led the World walks readers through metropolises of<br />

our globe from a historical viewpoint. Yes, this is the book you’ll want to read if you’re a history<br />

nerd! Journeying through ten cities from ancient history through to modern day, Paul Strathern<br />

offers a complex analysis of how cities have defined eras, formed new ideas, brought revolution,<br />

and made history. Learn how the human mind discovered mathematics in Babylonia, enjoy<br />

the first theatrical spectacles in ancient Athens, and marvel at the ancient Roman construction<br />

work that lasts to this day. Form new and enlightened ideas in Paris, build the first skyscrapers<br />

in New York, and discover how economy is progressing in Beijing. Each city that’s shaped our<br />

world is distinct, but they are also all interconnected, creating world history, together.<br />

4 In Search of Berlin by John Kampfner<br />

While many of the books mentioned so far give readers a broad overview and analysis of cities<br />

and their history, In Search of Berlin by John Kampfner will appeal to those who love minutiae<br />

and want more of a deep dive when tucking into a good book. Berlin is one of the most fascinat-<br />

3<br />

ing cities in the world. Located at the heart<br />

of Europe, it’s a place full of contradictions,<br />

constantly reinventing itself while also<br />

looking back at its turbulent past. In this<br />

book, Kampfner looks back at 800 years of<br />

history, studying archives, interviewing<br />

historians, architects and archaeologists,<br />

scrutinising every inch of the city. The<br />

book took four years to write, and its level<br />

of detail is unparalleled, as the author<br />

shares his journeys across the city and finds<br />

its hidden gems and stories, from the fallen<br />

statue of Lenin to cabaret stars thrown out<br />

of the city. Whether you’re planning a trip<br />

to Berlin, live in the city, or simply want to<br />

learn more about its history, this fascinating<br />

read will not disappoint.<br />

5 A Book of Days by Patti Smith<br />

Cities are not just made up of urban plans,<br />

revolutionary ideas and important events.<br />

Sometimes, cities represent our very own<br />

memories and Proustian feelings. Patti<br />

Smith has, quite truly, dedicated her life to<br />

making memories. In A Book of Days, the<br />

musician and bestselling author’s love for<br />

photography and words marry in a beautiful<br />

collection of 365 photographs. Each<br />

photograph and caption works as documentation<br />

of the passions and thoughts of the<br />

artist’s life, and throughout the book she<br />

honours the work of fellow artists she ad-<br />

mundane moments. As it’s mostly photographic, this is a beautiful<br />

6 The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster<br />

If you’ve had enough of non-fiction and are after some good old<br />

fictional escapism, Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy is an excellent<br />

series to sink your teeth into with the crowded streets of – you<br />

guessed it – New York as its backdrop. Written in the mid-1980s,<br />

this trilogy was truly ahead of its time, mixing postmodern fiction<br />

with classic detective mystery, breaking the fourth wall, experimenting<br />

with philosophy and the concept of identity. In the first title,<br />

City of Glass, we see a mystery writer trotting the streets of New<br />

York, as he gets lost in a real-life mystery that must be solved. In<br />

the second book, Ghosts, a private investigator gets similarly lost in<br />

the life of the person investigated. And the third book takes us even<br />

deeper into madness, as a writer struggles with his own creativity<br />

and decides to take on another person’s identity. Each book vividly<br />

portrays the gruelling experience of being a writer, bringing readers<br />

to a trance as they lose themselves among the vividly described<br />

streets of New York City.<br />

9 The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton<br />

If stories set in today’s complicated reality hit too close to home,<br />

you may want to travel a bit further from Rome and back in time.<br />

Welcome to 17th century Amsterdam. Eighteen-year-old Nella is<br />

promised to Amsterdam-based Johannes Brandt, a merchant trader<br />

who lives with his sister. Nella is confronted with solitude from the<br />

get-go, a dreadful feeling relieved only by a small gift from her husband:<br />

a cabinet-sized replica of their house. She seeks out the help of<br />

a miniaturist to fill the rooms of her mini-house. And soon enough,<br />

through the small creation, Nella uncovers secrets of the very house<br />

she lives in, and realises that the miniaturist helping her knows<br />

much more about her new life than she thought. The Miniaturist by<br />

Jessie Burton was a true phenomenon before it even published: the<br />

focus of a heated bidding war between publishers, it went on to win<br />

awards, sell millions of copies, and translate into over 37 languages.<br />

It’s an addictive story of obsession, betrayal, and the need to go<br />

beyond appearances and to uncover truth.<br />

10 Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch<br />

An incredible way of exploring cities in books is by creating magical<br />

systems within them, and that’s exactly what Rivers of London<br />

by Ben Aaronovitch does excellently. An urban fantasy set in modern-day<br />

London, the story centres around Probationary Constable<br />

Peter Grant, who works for the London Metropolitan Police. His<br />

career is at a standstill, but things are about to dramatically change<br />

for him when he speaks to a ghost regarding a mystery murder<br />

7 Stories From the Tenants Downstairs by Sidik Fofana<br />

From the very solitary experience of being a writer and getting lost<br />

in our own minds, prepare to be catapulted into the complete opposite<br />

experience of life in the city. We’re still in New York, and Sidik<br />

Fofana takes us into the heart of Harlem with a beautiful collection<br />

of eight short stories centred around one building: Banneker Terrace,<br />

a low-income high-rise. Its tenants all living under the looming<br />

threat of gentrification, living pay check to pay check, sometimes<br />

working multiple jobs, as they go through the motions of real,<br />

everyday life. We meet a single mother, a homeless street dancer, a<br />

college dropout facing eviction and so many more characters whose<br />

lives are intertwined with each other. It may seem that they’re each<br />

facing individual struggles, but they’re all equally moving through<br />

a world of poverty and injustice. This unromanticised view of life<br />

in the city is told through a third person omniscient narrative, yet<br />

each character holds their own individual voice, making this a<br />

varied but cohesive reading experience.<br />

8 Roman Stories by Jhumpa Lahiri<br />

For short story lovers, we have another fantastic collection to share.<br />

While Stories from the Tenants Downstairs is very much centred<br />

around American culture, Roman Stories takes us to the ever so<br />

romanticised Rome in Italy. Pulitzer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri<br />

lived in Rome for many years, and she actually wrote these stories,<br />

now translated by Todd Portnowitz, in Italian. Inspired by some<br />

of Italy’s greatest literary voices, from Alberto Moravia to Dante<br />

Alighieri, Lahiri digs deep in the human experience, especially the<br />

sense of alienation, vulnerability and displacement. From families<br />

seeking refuge in their new country to migrant women facing<br />

racism to friends meeting in an osteria, each character is searching<br />

for a sense of home, even the Italian characters themselves. With<br />

hauntingly beautiful prose, Lahiri explores themes of belonging,<br />

social status, and family, with the beautiful architecture and social<br />

fabric of the eternal city bringing each story together.<br />

and realises that there’s a whole police department that deals with<br />

crimes involving magic. The magic system in this book is so unique,<br />

with much of it rooted in scientific theories and so much of the city<br />

of London weaved into it, making the book feel like a long love letter<br />

to the city from a Londoner. Since its publication in 2011, Rivers<br />

of London has extended into an incredibly successful series, so there<br />

are more Peter Grant books in store after this, but be warned: you<br />

will quickly fall head over heels for London!<br />

11 Dubliners by James Joyce<br />

Not all stories must have ground-breaking revelations, huge plot<br />

twists or magical worldbuilding. Sometimes, the best descriptions<br />

of city life are those that simply capture small, seemingly insignificant<br />

actions or moments. Finishing off our round-up with some<br />

classics that vividly describe cities, we couldn’t leave out literature’s<br />

greatest: Dubliners by James Joyce. These stories are a great example<br />

of the Naturalism movement in literature: most are observing quite<br />

ordinary main characters leading ordinary lives. The author tells<br />

the stories of 15 fictional Dubliners inspired by real people he met:<br />

a little boy who sees death for the first time, a young boy falling<br />

in love, a young woman deciding whether she should elope with<br />

her lover, a young man spending beyond his means, all the way<br />

to unfaithful spouses reflecting on life and death. The stories in<br />

this collection are so deeply rooted in reality, Joyce spent ten years<br />

trying to get them published. Every publisher but one refused to<br />

publish them, because they were too afraid of being sued!<br />

12 A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway<br />

And to conclude our exciting list, this wouldn’t be a selection of<br />

books about cities for book lovers without including the great hub<br />

of literature: Paris. Paris was home of the so-called Lost Generation,<br />

a group of literary figures who lived in Paris in the 1920s and who<br />

we now revere, including F. Scott Fitzgerald and E. E. Cummings.<br />

Their writing is a reflection of the lost values following the tragedy<br />

and immense loss of World War I, and it was Earnest Hemingway<br />

who popularised the term in his book A Moveable Feast, a collection<br />

of Hemingway’s personal papers published posthumously. In this<br />

book, Hemingway, still an unknown writer, walks the streets of<br />

Paris, surrounded by author friends James Joyce, the Fitzgeralds,<br />

Gertrude Stein and many more. This memoir is a coming-of-age<br />

story of an author discovering his passion and talent for writing<br />

thanks to the endless inspiration gifted by the magical French city<br />

of lights. Whether cities inspire you to be creative like Hemingway,<br />

take you on incredible journeys of magic or simply work as a<br />

window into a country’s culture on your travels, it’s impossible not<br />

to marvel at how they’ve shaped our world, moulding new ideas,<br />

creating change and each carving a special place in our hearts.<br />

Recommendations from our book experts.<br />

Jane, Stauffacher Bern<br />

1<br />

An incredibly entertaining and<br />

well-written novel about a woman in<br />

science in the 1960s, working in a very<br />

male-dominated environment. Elizabeth<br />

Zott is a great chemist, but is the world of<br />

science ready for her? Elizabeth is not one<br />

to allow a man to stand in her way, so when<br />

she is fired from her job for getting pregnant<br />

and left as a single mother, her determination<br />

to succeed only grows stronger.<br />

An incredible story of a woman following<br />

her passion. A charming, enlightening and<br />

undeniably feminist tale set in mid-century<br />

America.<br />

Tashina, Stauffacher Bern<br />

This book is a piece of art that should<br />

be put in a museum. Henry and Alex<br />

are such multilayered characters whose<br />

relationship is crafted perfectly; I was rooting<br />

for them! This novel will make you cry,<br />

laugh, and believe in true love. The story is<br />

heart-warming and unforgettable, it will<br />

stay in your heart forever.<br />

You don’t have to be a gamer to love<br />

this book! You don’t even have to know<br />

anything about games to be able to immerse<br />

yourself in the world of Sam and Sadie:<br />

two kids who connect over a game of Super<br />

Mario and then go on to design highly<br />

successful games themselves. Spanning 30<br />

years, this is a story of success and failure,<br />

friendship and deceit, love and tragedy, and<br />

the ever-redemptive possibilities in playing<br />

games. Simply brilliant!<br />

I can’t and won’t stop recommending this<br />

with the characters. So far my favourite<br />

read this year.<br />

Set in 1975 Ireland during the<br />

Troubles, Trespasses evolves around two<br />

significant aspects of the life of Cushla, a<br />

young Catholic teacher who lives with her<br />

alcoholic mother in a small working-class<br />

town near Belfast. In one story, she falls for<br />

Michael, a much older, married, Protestant<br />

barrister. In the second, we follow Cushla’s<br />

involvement in the home life of Davy, one<br />

of her young pupils who is bullied. From<br />

the very beginning, I felt sure both stories<br />

would find no happy ending. Yet this book<br />

is so tenderly written, full of detail and<br />

compassion for its characters and for the<br />

special place and time they live in, that it<br />

wouldn’t let me go, even after I had finished<br />

reading it. Kennedy’s wonderful, complex<br />

debut novel is now shortlisted for the Women’s<br />

A story about being in love in modern<br />

with unapologetic rawness what it means<br />

to be a woman today – the pressure, the<br />

expectations, the challenges, and the glory<br />

of it all. Thought-provoking, fascinating,<br />

and radically brilliant.<br />

Stories for Young and Old<br />

These books are bound to take you back to the stories<br />

that grew us into readers.<br />

Text von Christine Modafferi<br />

‘Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.’<br />

This brilliant quote by C. S. Lewis reminds us of the power of children’s<br />

books, and why kids and adults alike should never shy away<br />

from reading a good book, no matter the age range it is intended<br />

for. So in honour of falling in love with the beauty of a good story,<br />

let us take a look at some of the best children’s releases, starting at<br />

the beginning with a little one’s first introduction to stories: picture<br />

books, continuing with middle grade and last but not least, YA<br />

recommendations. Whether you are gifting this to a special child in<br />

your life or nurturing and healing your inner child, these books are<br />

bound to take you back to the stories that grew us into readers.<br />

Aged 4 and up<br />

Friendship, dreams and working together<br />

to create change make for the perfect<br />

picture book.<br />

On a similar note, a strong message of hope<br />

is weaved into the words and illustrations<br />

of Something, Someday. Written by presidential<br />

inaugural poet Amanda Gorman<br />

and illustrated by award-winning illustrator<br />

Christian Robinson, this beautiful book<br />

is about how, however small we may feel in<br />

this messy, complicated world, together we<br />

can make a BIG difference. It is also about<br />

the importance of finding true friendship<br />

and the beauty of hoping, dreaming and<br />

fighting together for change. Who ever said<br />

children’s books cannot change the world?<br />

Aged 8 and up<br />

A brand-new read from the middle-grade<br />

master.<br />

Moving down to books for readers aged<br />

8+, also called middle grade books, we are<br />

starting strong with an author who many<br />

of our readers might recognise from when<br />

they first fell in love with books: Patricia C.<br />

Wrede, author of the bestselling Enchanted<br />

Forest Chronicles series. In her latest release,<br />

The Dark Lord’s Daughter, Kayla, an<br />

ordinary girl, discovers she is actually the<br />

daughter of a dark lord, and gets whisked<br />

off to a fantasy world, along with her adoptive<br />

mother and brother. In complete Patricia<br />

C. Wrede style, Kayla will have to battle<br />

her new society’s expectations surrounding<br />

what a Dark Lady should do, and she has<br />

her own thoughts about how to manage her<br />

new status...<br />

A gorgeous picture book with a strong<br />

message about helping those in need.<br />

And finally, the picture books. Perfect<br />

bedtime stories to read aloud, you are in<br />

for a treat with our last two children’s<br />

recommendations. We often think of Neil<br />

Gaiman as the master of fantasy, but the<br />

prolific UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador’s<br />

pen lends itself to an important cause in this<br />

32-page picture book: helping those who<br />

need a home. With a strong core message<br />

around the ideas of warmth and community,<br />

as well as beautiful illustrations<br />

throughout by some of the biggest names<br />

in publishing, from Chris Riddell and<br />

Benji Davies to Yuliya Gwilym and Nadine<br />

Kaadan, this is the perfect book to set on a<br />

coffee table or to keep you and your little<br />

ones warm at bedtime.<br />

A knee-slappingly funny illustrated<br />

book for reluctant readers.<br />

If you are looking for a fail-safe book that<br />

children aged 8+ will love, Megamonster by<br />

multi-million bestselling author David Walliams<br />

will do the trick. Set in an imaginary<br />

school called The Cruel School, which is<br />

found on an island surrounded by sharks,<br />

welcome to a world where school dinners<br />

are vomit-inducing, lessons include Gabber<br />

language classes and the teachers are truly<br />

horrific! Larker is not at all happy when she<br />

is sent to this strange school, and one teacher<br />

in particular is very suspicious... With<br />

black-and-white illustrations by Tony Ross<br />

throughout, the book makes for a hilarious<br />

read that will win over even reluctant<br />

readers!<br />

High stakes and fast-paced, for readers<br />

looking for a story with edge.<br />

On the topic of morally grey characters<br />

... meet some characters who are especially<br />

good at stealing. However, with<br />

thieving comes serious danger and seventeen-year-old<br />

Ross Quest’s mother has been<br />

kidnapped as a consequence of the life she<br />

and her family lead. Therefore, Ross enters<br />

a competition for thieves. The grand prize?<br />

A granted wish. And her wish is to find her<br />

mother, no matter what it takes. High-octane<br />

and full of twists, turns, betrayal,<br />

action, and suspense, Thieves’ Gambit by<br />

Kayvion Lewis is one of the most highly<br />

anticipated titles of the year.<br />

Romantacy and vampires, perfect for<br />

fans of Sarah J Maas.<br />

For YA and romantasy lovers, Shelby Mahurin's<br />

The Scarlet Veil is the first book in a<br />

new duology set in the much-loved Serpent<br />

& Dove world, centring on character Célie,<br />

who has taken on the role of huntress, vowing<br />

to protect the land of Belterra. If the fact<br />

that Sarah J. Maas said this book kept her<br />

‘reading long into the night’ is not enough<br />

for you to pick up this book, let us convince<br />

you to read this by promising: vampires,<br />

a slow-burn romance with a morally grey<br />

love interest, and a murder mystery. This is<br />

the perfect read whether you love fantasy<br />

novels with a gothic atmosphere or are simply<br />

in the mood for vampire nostalgia.<br />

To conclude our YA recommendations, we<br />

what could be more of a banger than the<br />

very last book in the One of Us Is... trilogy?<br />

We are back at Bayview High, where its<br />

students just cannot seem to get a break and<br />

secrets hide in every crack of the school<br />

building. This time, one of the Bayview<br />

crew members goes missing and a new<br />

deadly game is in play. The crew will have<br />

to figure out who is behind it this time, so<br />

they can finally end this story once and for<br />

all.<br />
