On Thursday Anne discovers how to love a difficult man (or not), Tudor style, in Suzannah Dunn’s The Confession of Katherine Howard.
On Friday Lisa is baffled, delighted, appalled and amused by David Shrigley’s What the hell are you doing? and can’t help but ask that very question of the author.
On Saturday Eve is back with something thrilling from the world of YA fiction.
