#12Days: Joanne Harris’ festive book recommendations

Today we welcome the wonderful Joanne Harris to the blog as she shares her festive book recommendations with us. 


The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig: Terrfic follow-up to A Boy Called Christmas ; best enjoyed read aloud to a child, on Christmas Eve, with mulled wine and a mince pie.





The Power by Naomi Alderman. What if girls developed the power to discharge electricity at will? This is the deceptively simple concept behind this stunning feminist fable – troubling, touching, intelligent and rousing.




Common Ground by Rob Cowen: Part-memoir, part poem to nature: the most moving novel I’ve read this year.





Charlotte Bronte: A Fiery Heart by Claire Harman. Biography of one of our most fascinating and misunderstood female novelists. A fabulous insight into her life, her work and her relationships.




The Fireman by Joe Hill. Part dystopian epic, part allegory and satire of our social-media driven friendship groups, THE FIREMAN packs a hell of a punch.




Runemarks is out now in hardback, audio and ebook.

Psst, watch out for the festive bumper giveaway on 13th December, including a copy of Runemarks!
