funny and heart breaking at the same time!”

Azraa Oozeerally would love to findGirl, Woman, Otherby Bernardine Evaristo in her stocking this Christmas!

“I’ve been interested in reading it after seeing all the great reviews it received, especially after it won the Booker Prize! It sounds like an original read and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!”

Our Associate Director, Helen Speedy is hoping to finally getJonathan Coe's英格兰中部!

“This novel has been on my wish list since it came out in 2018, but I still haven’t had a chance to read it. I love Jonathan Coe and his darkly humorous commentary on society and the human condition. I can’t wait to settle down in a cosy spot with a slice of Christmas cake and read英格兰中部盖上一个坐着盖住,所以我希望有人把它放在我的袜子里!“

Catherine Roney’s Christmas stocking book wish is,星星的给予者by Jojo Moyes!

“I am a huge Jojo Moyes fan, and cannot wait to get a copy of her latest book. Set in England in the late 1930s, it is a story about two women and a mission to spread the wonder of books and reading to those who are poor or lost. This book is based on a true story and sounds exactly like the wonderful and motivational read needed to start off the New Year

Last but not least, our consultant Clare Chan is hoping to get1Q84by Murakami!

“I love his fiction, but I haven’t managed to get around to this classic!”

If you’re in need of some great books as gifts this year then here are some of the best books of 2019:

  • The Beast of Buckingham Palace由David Walliams和Tony Ross - 这本书对年轻人来说是伟大的,在他们的袜子里找到!
  • Pinch of Nom: 100 Slimming, Home-style Recipesby Catherine Allinson, Kate Allinson, and Kay Featherstone, is the perfect stocking gift for someone who is passionate about cooking! (I have it myself and think it’s the handiest book ever!!)
  • The Testamentsby Margaret Atwood for someone who is a fan of Atwood this would be the best gift to find in their stocking!


Wishing you all have a lovely Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
