Five on a Treasure Island
(Paperback)
Enid Blyton
 
Detectives doesn’t get jollier than the Famous Five. They’re not always the best crime solvers, but they can always be relied on to stumble over a dastardly smuggling plot at exactly the right moment. And they are excellent at picnics. Ginger beer and macaroons all round!

MetaMAUS
(Hardback)
Art Spiegelman
 
I thought that my generation was doing pretty well following Art's example of how to make serious comic books for adults, but this book demonstrates just how pale and paltry our efforts have been; via interviews, documents, photographs and preparatory sketches (and an interactive DVD) it's clear that Art not only created the graphic novel, but that graphic novel may also never be bettered.

The Alienist
(Paperback)
Caleb Carr
 
Oh, the suspense! The Alienest by Caleb Carr is set in steamy and corrupt 1890s New York at a time when police investigations were beginning to make use of psychological research and new technologies. The nature of tackling crime is changing, and some proper analysis is required of the team on the case. This book is clever and absolutely compelling.

The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew...
(Hardback)
Werner Holzwarth; Wolf Erlbruch
Oh how I love this book! One day Little Mole pokes his head out of his hole only to have something rather nasty land on his head. I suppose you could class this as educational (I can certainly identify more types of poo than I could) but I chose The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it Was None of His Business because whoever you read it to, will love you for it. The illustrations are sketchbook gorgeous, and the text . . . I’ll let speak for itself . . . ‘Rat-a-tat-tat-fifteen little round beans shot past the mole’s ears. He saved himself with a daring leap.’ Genius!

A Long Long Way
(Paperback)
Sebastian Barry
 
For one long week, I travelled in a dark cloud, so moved was I by this book. This is the story of pint-sized Willie Dunne, a young Irishman who joins the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and goes off to fight in World War One. Caught in that great ash-heap of history, he also finds himself caught in the crossfire of the Easter Rising at home. Barry recreates a forgotten corner of Irish history, and along the way, crafts one of the great Great War novels. This is a lament for those caught in that “heaving swell of history”. Barry’s writing luminesces with the most intense beauty, but it is all the more remarkable because his writing does not flinch from the cruelty of the world. The book’s poetry is as harrowingly beautiful as any of the poetry from the Great War.

Stitch 'n Bitch Handbook:...
(Paperback)
Debbie Stoller
 
In my early 20s I was living in Brighton, and began attending the cake and tea-fuelled Stitch n Bitch group at the local Borders. I made some good friends there, and it re-sparked a passion for knitting that hasn’t gone away. Debbie Stoller, the US knitting and crafts guru and my heroine, was one of the people who made making things COOL again. She is also the founder and editor of feminist women’s magazine Bust, which includes craft projects every issue. But that’s another story…

The Favourite Game
(Paperback)
Leonard Cohen
 
We all know Leonard Cohen is The Don: perhaps the ONLY true musician/poet/novelist ever. This is his first novel and there is a great section where he describes driving through the Canadian night listening to Pat Boone singing 'I Almost Lost My Mind' which totally captures the essence of teenage years and their infatuation with all things Rock.
