And a couple of others that I’ve heard good things about or enjoyed other books by the author
Back Trouble by Clare Chambers https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Trouble-Clare-Chambers-ebook/dp/B004J4VZ8Y/ref=mp_s_a_1_102?qid=1695827539&s=digital-text&sr=1-102

Haven’t read it but my partner is a huge fan of the author

10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World by Elif Shafak

1 Like

I’ve bought that when it was previously on offer, but not read it yet. But mainly because I also bought the author’s The Island Of Missing Trees, which I just didn’t get on with (nor did my partner), despite the plot having some potential. So it’s just bumped this one down my backlog list unfortunately!

Turns out we actually already have this one in hardback and my partner highly recommends it, but if you didn’t get on with the other one then I get why you’d push it down the backlog!

Yeah, it could be that it’s amazing and I’m missing out due to the one bad experience, but will keep it waiting for a while just in case! :smiley:

Always been tempted by this author, largely because she is a loud and unrepentant metalhead

What would people be surprised to know about you?
I am huge fan of Gothic metal, industrial metal, Viking-Pagan-folk metal and metal core. Especially dark, loud, aggressive Scandinavian metal bands. I listen to this kind of music on repeat while I am writing my novels.

(Elif Shafak: "I am huge fan of Gothic metal")

Both absolutely brilliant books, I think Candy House might actually be better than Goon Squad

Fun sci-fi about a society where caste is based on ability to see certain colours

Instant buy for both, added them to the increasingly large pile

Fantasy based on fairy tales. Had it on my wishlist so someone must have recommended it to me at some point but can’t remember who!

Read it a while ago so can’t really remember the details, but from memory it’s somewhere between “fine/10” and “better than the old beardy bloke fitting in as many tired fantasy tropes per chapter as they can”
