My first selection is a book from my childhood. I can’t have been older than 10 or 11 when I came across the Adventures of Alanna. Set in a medieval mythical world, she swaps places with her twin brother to become a knight, whilst her brother goes to become a mage instead.




“All good books are the same and when you read a good book you realize it’s already passed on to you and then that book becomes yours whatever good or bad or enjoyable in it. There are evils, sadness, people, towns and seasons there, they all become yours.” (Ernest Hemingway)
