Not a beach read! But still a great one, and a fitting end to a messed up year in the world. One of my faves was The Frozen Finger. Here's to 2023!

Another 5 ⭐️ for the year sneaks in, probably really a 4.5 as I found it quite hard to get into but once I did... Plus I've finally finished work so am feeing generous and festive! Not what I expected which is always a treat. Read on kindle so pic of my parents' tree.

I agree with everyone else who has reviewed so far - love the characters, the humour, the gentleness, the satire. Definitely going to be in a fug working out what to read next. Ideas welcome!

And I know we aren't starting #auldlangspine yet (and I was reading this for a book club), but am very pleased it was on my match's @larkken list!

Washington Black | Esi Edugyan
post image

What do we think of the Booker Prize judging panel? I liked Washington Black, I have seen Anjoa Andoh act at the National and she was amazing but no idea what books she will like, and I'm a bit wary of Robert Webb... I've definitely heard of James Shapiro, I haven't heard of Mary Jean Chan. It begins! #bookerprize2023
