Some recent and current reads...
Incendiary by Chris Cleave
(This was a tough read for me - I found the subject matter a little uncomfortable - but it was unlike anything else I've read before.)
The White Earth by Andrew McGahan
(Only a couple of chapters in, but this is just beautiful, captivating writing.)
The Troll by Julia Donaldson
(We love all her books and this one is particularly brilliant. Come Christmas day, the library book will be replaced by our own copy. Yay!)
