Here are the books that came into my home during the last fortnight:

Beyond Belief by Helen SmithThe Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff

Beyond Belief by Helen Smith 
– When I read Helen Smith’s darkly comic dystopian novel The Miracle Inspector I was impressed by the originality of her prose. Her latest novel Beyond Belief, set for release in January 2014, is a change of pace from that – a lighthearted humourous mystery – the second in her Emily Castles Mysteries series. With ‘eccentric characters in over-the-top situations’, it sounds like fun.

The Undertaking of Lily Chen by Danica Novgorodoff – One of my reading objectives for 2014 is to read my first ever graphic novel. And this gorgeous 432 page literary graphic novel from Danica Novgorodoff, set for release in March 2014, is the one I have chosen. The moody water colour illustrations are just beautiful and the underlying subject matter (ghost marriages, Chinese custom) sounds gritty enough to hold my attention – cannot wait to dive in!
