Nikki May recommends
Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? (2022)
Lizzie Damilola Blackburn
"Glorious debut! Read it over two nights and loved it!"
Black Cake (2022)
Charmaine Wilkerson
"So beautifully written I'm struggling to believe it's a debut . . . The cake is the glue that holds all the layers together and the scenes are so well drawn I could almost taste the cake, feel the warm sea on my skin."
That Green Eyed Girl (2022)
Julie Owen Moylan
"The pacing is perfect, the voice is striking. Highly recommend."
A Quiet Life (2022)
Ethan Joella
"I adored A Quiet Life. Soft as silk, powerful as a punch, Ethan Joella doesn't shirk from the trauma of grief but delivers real hope in our capacity to survive. A beautifully written page-turner like this one is hard to find."
Strange Sally Diamond (2023)
Liz Nugent
"I LOVED IT! Strange Sally strides onto the page, fully formed and funny as hell (this is Liz, we're talking dark funny). I was hooked from the first paragraph and then Liz toyed with me, I held my breath, gasped, laughed and cried. This is twisty, original and pitch-black. I'll go anywhere with Liz but only in daylight."
Ghost Girl, Banana (2023)
Wiz Wharton
"An intriguing, beautifully written study of the stories we inherit. I loved being in Lily and Sook-Yin's heads, my heart breaking for them . . . I loved it!"
The Girls of Summer (2023)
Katie Bishop
"Scorching and sexy, it lures you in then shakes you up. A very timely read about consent and control. I LOVED it."
The God of Good Looks (2023)
Breanne Mc Ivor
"Beautiful inside and out, The God of Good Looks is big-hearted, life-affirming, and salty-sweet. A glittering will-they, won't they Bridget Jones re-boot, it transported me to the Caribbean. LOVED IT."
