I haven’t caught up with the Book Panel for a few weeks, but have just managed to listen to the two most recent editions, which recommended the following:

20 September

Lucky Star by Cathy Cassidy

Blood Captain by Justin Somper

27 September

The Pools by Bethan Roberts

Artemis Fowl -The Graphic Novel by Eion Colfer

The Book God is very excited by Blood Captain as it’s about Vampirates, which says it all really. I very much like the sound of The Pools, and it’s now on my Wish List.

Last week’s selection was:

The Overlook by Michael Connelly


Gifted by Nikita Lalwani

This week’s books were:

The Woman in the Fifth by Douglas Kennedy

Burma Boy by Biyi Bandele

Full details as always on the BBC Radio 5 website.

A bit of a delay in posting, but last week’s books were:

The Yiddish Policeman’s Union by Michael Chabon

When Red is Black by Qiu Xiaolong

The Chabon book was already on my wish list but it looks like I’ll have to investigate Inspector Chen as well.

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!)

Bride of the Book God

Follow brideofthebook on Twitter

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
