Today we welcome the wonderful Joanne Harris to the blog as she shares her festive book recommendations with us.
The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig: Terrfic follow-up to A Boy Called Christmas ; best enjoyed read aloud to a child, on Christmas Eve, with mulled wine and a mince pie.
The Power by Naomi Alderman. What if girls developed the power to discharge electricity at will? This is the deceptively simple concept behind this stunning feminist fable – troubling, touching, intelligent and rousing.
Common Ground by Rob Cowen: Part-memoir, part poem to nature: the most moving novel I’ve read this year.
Charlotte Bronte: A Fiery Heart by Claire Harman. Biography of one of our most fascinating and misunderstood female novelists. A fabulous insight into her life, her work and her relationships.
The Fireman by Joe Hill. Part dystopian epic, part allegory and satire of our social-media driven friendship groups, THE FIREMAN packs a hell of a punch.
Runemarks is out now in hardback, audio and ebook.
Psst, watch out for the festive bumper giveaway on 13th December, including a copy of Runemarks!
