New books...


Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick
This is a non fiction book about North Korea and looks at what life is like there from the 1990s onwards looking at the famine and the controlling government. The book was written using interviews with North Korean people and sounds like it's going to be a hugely interesting read.

The Call of the Weird by Louis Theroux
Another non fiction book although one with a lighter tone this was written during Theroux's LA Stories series and is a travelogue of sorts as he meets the weird and wonderful (and not so wonderful) people of LA. I am a huge fan of Theroux and his documentaries so look forward to this.


Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl
I usually steer clear of YA as I'm not particularly a fan but I saw this and had to pick it up. This is a novel about Marvel character Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow- super spy and all round badass. The book is set eight years before the first Avengers film and hopefully will be interesting!

The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide
Set in Tokyo this is a short novel about a married couple in their thirties who are drifting apart until a a cat invites itself into their house and brings them back together. The story sounds completely charming and the cover is beautiful.
