By now you’ll all hopefully be reading your way through all the wonderful reviews in the latest edition of Shiny New Books! There are some marvellous books highlighted on the site (very bad for the wishlist!) and I thought I’d point you to another couple of reviews I’ve been happy to provide for SNB.




First up is a lovely reissued volume from Oxford World’s Classics. I reviewed it here on the Ramblings and loved it a lot – for a novel of this vintage to have such strong female leads was a real treat! My review is also on Shiny here if you’d like to check it out.






The second review is for something completely different – a powerful and visceral yet often beautiful work of Dutch-Caribbean literature from Tip Marugg. The author was completely new to me and the book was a memorable read – my review is here.





So do pop over to Shiny New Books to read up on these and many other wonderful books! 🙂
