- In Love with George Eliot (Kathy O'Shaughnessy 2019) 10 January 2021I must have read at least ten people saying that Middlemarch is the greatest English novel. I did love it as an undergraduate and it's on my list to reread. In the meantime, this was my Kris Kringle gift from the Book Group.
- Gideon Falls Volume 5: Wicked Worlds (Jeff Lemire and others 2020) 9 January 2021A Christmas present. This may be the final volume in this creepy series.
- Bridgerton (Chris Van Dusen 2020) 8 January 2021A regency romance with a strong fantasy element that at first just looks like 'colourblind casting'
- Piranesi (Susanna Clarke 2020) 5 January 2021This is a very welcome Christmas present. I loved Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell all that time ago.
- Stan: Bump (Kelsey Munro 2021) 3 January 2021A beautifully written, directed and performed family drama. I love the way the teenage protagonist (Nathalie Morris) is so absolute in her stated positions and then unapologetic when she does an about turn. There's much else to love. The episodes are short, and it has benefited from much more resources than other recent offerings
