I'm Not Scared by Niccola Ammaniti

I'm Not Scared

By Niccola Ammaniti

If you thought that Red Riding Hood's grandmother was frightening, wait until you meet this one. What with the impaled chickens, the creepy farm and the seriously odd relatives, it's like an Italian version of "Cold Comfort Farm".

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult

Salem Falls

By Jodi Picoult

This was the first Picoult book I have read and it made me want to read all of her other books. It is the story of the “Salem Falls” community and what happens when a stranger with a mysterious past comes to stay. Jack St Bride has just left prison for a crime he said he did not commit, but the townspeople are ready to convict him without letting the law run its course. There is rumour and scandal throughout this book and it had me gripped from start to finish.

The Sands of the Sakkara by Glen Meade

The Sands of the Sakkara

By Glen Meade

Ancient Egypt, archaeologists, Nazis – this is the story of an Indiana Jones clone with less humour but better characterisation and plot. Bit of a slow starter but stick with it.
