Recommended by Rachel Rogan of Rogan's Books in Bedford: "A series called The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. 14 books, I'm playing the long game. I'm ensuring that I bring them back. It plays with the concept of time, fantasy novels set in another period, another age... The world building that Jordan creates - he's taken Tolkien and just taken it stratospheric. I am completely obsessed with these books - once you get sucked into this cult you never get out alive. They're my favourite series ever!"
The Living Sea of Waking Dreams
"At the heart of this latest novel from Booker winner Richard Flanagan there is a powerful tale of a family trying to decide whether to prolong the life of a dying relative, but some of the more fantastical elements seem out of kilter..."
