      Thanks Jurga. There are some of my all time favourites on this list – books that you read and never forget. Let me know what you think of some of the books thats were new to you when you have read them – love to chat books!

    A list I wholeheartedly agree with! I’ve read many of these and have others sitting on my shelf waiting their turn. You have included a few I haven’t come across before so I’ll have to make sure I look out for them. As for my own suggestions, here goes: ‘The Blood of Flowers’ by Anita Amirrezvani (it’s an historical novel about carpet makers in Iran); any of Barbara Nadel’s detective novels set in Istanbul; Ann Cleeves’s wonderful Shetland series of books; ‘Alone in Berlin’ by Hans Fallada (set in WWII) and ‘The Fortunes of Richard Mahoney’ by Henry Handel Richardson (an historical trilogy set in Melbourne and the goldmines of Ballarat in Australia).
