Top Ten Books from UK – September 2018

A really broad selection of books this month, ranging from Literary Fiction to Cookery,
from Romance to Sci-Fi. You’re sure to find something interesting, unusual and rather wonderful — so why not request something a little different and expand your horizons? Enjoy!

Paris Echo
Sebastian Faulks
Hutchinson
UK Edition

Sebastian Faulks is one of the most consistently entertaining and thoughtful British writers, and Paris Echo is a real treat for anyone who loves a compelling narrative with an emotional heart.

American Hannah and runaway Moroccan teenager Tariq have little in common, but both are seeking something on the streets of Paris. While Hannah is researching the lives of women during the German occupation, Tariq is looking for his mother. Their stories show a different side of Paris, and explore identity, history and loss.

Extraordinary, vivid and deeply moving.

Killer T
Robert Muchamore
Hot Key Books
UK Edition

Robert Muchamore’s Killer Tis a genre-bending tale of coming of age, terrorism and gene editing. As a deadly virus is let loose, British Harry and American Charlie must stick together as the world falls apart. A truly compelling, clever and utterly captivating novel.

The Clockmaker's Daughter
Kate Morton
Mantle
UK Edition

Two unexpected guests. Two long-kept secrets. A gunshot in the dark. This is another superlative historical thriller, full of passion, secrets, intrigue and suspense from the internationally bestselling author of The House at Riverton.

French Exit
Patrick deWitt
Bloomsbury Publishing
UK Edition

Patrick deWitt’s unique voice — tragic, comic and all points between — is one of the great joys of modern literature, as anyone who’s read The Sisters Brotherswill tell you. This new novel is a worthy successor, moving from New York to Paris in a riotous comedy of manners.

Rosewater
Tade Thompson
Orbit
UK Edition

This much lauded, prizewinning work of speculative fiction is bold, innovative and hugely readable. Rosewater is a community living in the shade of an alien biodome. But when government agents begin to die, Kaaro must investigate the truth.

Everyday Madness
Lisa Appignanesi
Fourth Estate
UK Edition

This memoir in three parts explores the way we cope under the daily madness of moden life. In luminous and elegant prose, Lisa Appignanesi offers acute insights into our mental health, as well as a deeply moving exploration of love, loss, hope and grief.

A Little Bird Told Me
Marianne Holmes
Agora Books
UK Edition

Set in the scorching summer of 1976, A Little Bird Told Meis a deeply affecting tale of mystery, deception and small town secrets. Robyn notices a strange man is watching her. Has it something to do with why the whole town is gossiping about her mother…?

Strudel, Noodles & Dumplings
Anja Dunk
Fourth Estate
UK Edition

German cuisine is perhaps not as well known or revered in the UK as Italian or French cookery, but this might well change after the publication of Anja Dunk’s brilliant introduction to the German kitchen. Packed with flavourful recipes inspired by Anja’s family history, this is a must read.

The Corset
Laura Purcell
Raven Books
UK Edition

A Victorian chiller of the very highest order, The Corset is a creepy, compulsively readable novel of madness, murder and retribution. Dorothea visits Oakgate Prison to see Ruth, a woman on trial for murder. Is she really guilty? And if so, how did she kill someone with just a needle and thread?

The Governess Game
Tessa Dare
Mills & Boon
UK Edition

From the author of The Duchess Deal comes another passionate and consuming historical romance. Governess Alexandra is employed to turn two orphans into proper young ladies. It’s a near impossible job, especially as their guardian is notorious rake, Chase Reynaud…
