In this new journey Michael Palin fills a void in his travels by visiting 22 Eastern European countries, places which had had limited access until the fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the 1980’s. Many of the countries have changed due to various warring armies destroying the landscapes but there are still rich and complex cultures to experience. From the mountains of Slovenia , through the former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Romania the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad and many, many more, Palin opens up a new and undiscovered Europe to us with his inimitable charm and wit.
A brilliant premise to set up plenty of comedy moments in this hilarious new book from Claudia Carroll. Cassie has psychic visions, apart from where her own life is concerned, so while managing to sort out everyone elseâ€™s love life hers is faltering. Funny, witty and completely charming.
Shortlisted for the Spread the Word : Books to Talk About 2008.An incredibly moving and uplifting novel. Get the tissues out for this one. You will find yourself wanting to race through it in the hope that somehow that will change the inevitable outcome. Tessa tells her story with a matter-of-fact tone that keeps the book from being over sentimental, there is laughter and there are tears and there is a very positive message. Highly recommended.
A topical subject of suicide bombers and those who try to catch them. Seymour brings all the action and paced we have come to accept as well as looking in to the deeper moral implications on both sides. Gripping and thought provoking.
A 2012 World Book Night selection. Voted 3rd in the Books of the Decade by Lovereading readers. Shortlisted for the Newcomer of the Year Award at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2008. This is the story of a street of ordinary German people living in the horrors of the Nazi regime. Interestingly it is narrated by Death but the central character is an 11-year old girl who steals a gravedigger’s handbook and gets hooked on reading. It’s grim yet uplifting, immensely sad yet light in style and touch. A very interesting view of World War II and an unforgettable book, it’s aimed at both children and adults and should be read by both. Larry Finlay, Managing Director of the Publisher of The Book Thief said: “It is a great, great book, one that calls out to your head and your heart whatever your age. Its success is due almost entirely to word-of-mouth for unlike many bestsellers it has not been made into a film (yet), nor was it picked by a Book Club such as Richard and Judy.” A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher... ‘The Book Thief is one of those word-of-mouth bestsellers that has made its way into reader’s hearts entirely on its own merits. When this book came to me by way of the Children’s Division, my heart took that legendary leap. I met for the first time the delightful Liesel, Rudy and of course Death, the narrator, all of whom have joined the galaxy of best-loved characters in world literature. Rare is the reader who doesn’t close this book with a tear in their eye.' Jane Lawson, Editorial Director at Transworld
Meg has once again excelled herself. Teenagers everywhere will love the world of Jinx. Named Jinx because all her life sheâ€™s never had any luck; nothing goes according to plan, in fact everything goes wrong.

Winner of the T S Eliot Prize for Poetry 2007.The poet Peter Porter, who chaired the judging panel of WN Herbert and Sujata Bhatt, called O'Brien "a major artist" and described The Drowned Book as "fierce, funny and deeply melancholy".
Billingham hits a winning formula again. The seventh in the Tom Thorne series keeps the body count high as a killer seeks revenge on those who killed his family while he was in prison and those who put him inside unable to protect his loved ones. He has nothing left to lose and only a burning desire to avenge his wife and son’s death. Gripping and compelling, Billingham is a great crime writer.
The new novel from one of Britain’s best loved writers. Witty compassionate and casually libidinous The Spa Decameron is a real return to form for Fay Weldon.
A compelling, heartbreaking and beautifully written novel. Friendships and relationships are taken for granted until an earth shattering event throws everything up in the air and everything the characters thought they knew about each other is thrown in to turmoil. Sensitively written and thoroughly absorbing.
A good convoluted West Country tale starring the black detective Wesley Peterson of her previous titles and mixing ancient and modern crimes together as is her norm. There is lots going on, lots of strands, lots of intrigue, lots to keep you hooked. I love her.Comparison: W J Burley, Peter James, Ann Granger.
