Some Reading

I don't get to read very much at the moment, which is a real shame, but I have read two fantastic books recently. Firstly, The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon. What a charming and beautifully written novel. The characters were memorable, the prose insightful, the descriptions deft - I was enchanted; I didn't want it to end.

Secondly, The Fair Fight by Anna Freeman, a novel about female pugilists in Georgian Bristol that is accomplished, gripping and bloody brilliant. The BBC acquired the rights and I really, really hope the series is made - *everything* crossed.

The Trouble with Sheep and Goats won't be published until 2016, but The Fair Fight is now out in paperback.
