Simon Mayo’s Book Panel on Radio 5 Live is always worth listening to, as a podcast if not live. This week’s reviews were:

When We Were Bad by Charlotte Mendelson

The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies

Definitely think I’ll give the latter a try; I saw it in Waterstone’s and really liked the cover but had hit my hardback quota for the month (difficult to believe I have such a thing, but there you are!)
