  1. Hi Lucy,

    You have so many great books featured this week and all from new to me authors, that I just couldn’t select a couple for my own reading list.

    I am not a huge fan of audio books, however Penguin Audio have enlisted some fantastic narrators for the ‘Matilda’ series, so I hope that you really enjoy listening to them.

    Have a great week,

    And I’m glad the p’back edition of Fingerprints is the same as the gorgeous hardcover (at least from what I can see!0
