Looking for some inspiration to reinvigorate your 2016 reading challenge? Lucy selects two books that she think will help you get your book mojo back on track.

Solomon Creed

Solomon Creed by Simon Toyne
If you’re suffering from reader’s block, look no further than Solomon Creed, the start of an electrifying new series by Simon Toyne. You’ll be hooked from the first page; from the moment the mysterious Solomon emerges from the burning wreck of a plane crash. Dressed entirely in white, he has no memory of who he is, he knows only that there’s a man he needs to save … but that man is already dead. If you’ve read Simon’s previous books, you’ll know that he’s the master of intrigue, and Solomon certainly doesn’t disappoint. It will hold you in its thrall to the last and, more than that, it will make you fall in love with one of the most original and enticing characters I’ve ever met.

 

My Brilliant Friend
My Brilliant
Friend by Elena Ferrante (Neapolitan Novels: Book 1)
My own brilliant friend recommended this to me a few months ago, and now I can’t seem to stop talking about it. This is, simply put, one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read; a vibrant and touching story about a friendship between two girls as they navigate their way through adolescence, set in a small neighbourhood near Naples during the 1950s. And the best news? There are three more books in the series, so plenty to get you through your reading slump!
