I might not have read many books in November BUT I probably read my two favourites of the year!
The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman is perfect for those who aren’t into the graphic gore of some crime fiction but who do want a mystery that is going to keep them guessing until the last page. Told from the point of view of a whole cast of lovable and well-fleshed-out characters, this was a page-turner that felt both compelling and cosy. I can’t wait to read the next one!
And as though reading one stonking book wasn’t enough, November also gifted me with what I believe is Naomi Novik’s best fantasy novel yet. A Deadly Education is set in a gruesome school full of young wizards and combines a loveable anti-hero with some of the best discourse on educational disparity that you’re ever likely to find in this genre. The narrator is amusing and somehow, despite the horrible setting, monsters, and other murderous students, this novel will leave you smiling.
As always, read them all and then we can be chums 😊
