Two boys are born in 1920s Berlin. As they grow, they share everything - except their blood. This is a great book by Ben Elton, set during the time of the Holocaust and in the 1950s. It was harrowing and moving without being overly sentimental. Got Books, I Love Books, Books To Read, Ben Elton Books, Next, Books Australia, House Book, Two Brothers, Penguin Books

I'm a big fan of the George Gently TV series with Martin Shaw in the title role and the wonderful Lee Ingleby as his sidekick, so I thought I'd read one of the original books. The books are fine but this one was the first, written in 1955, and includes many things that sound very non PC to 21st Century ears! Good book, though.

I love Val McDermid's books. This one features Dr Tony Hill (played by Robson Green in the TV series of the same name). McDermid is adept at entering the minds of deviant criminals.

This is just one of the many wonderful Jeeves and Wooster books written by P G Wodehouse. They appeal to my sense of humour and I love the one-liners, the put-downs and the descriptions of the upper classes.

Empty Cradles by Margaret Humphreys is the heart-rending story of children from 1950s children's homes, many of whom still had parents, who were uprooted and sent abroad, mainly to Australia, often to a life of drudgery, violence and abuse.

I love all the C J Sansom Matthew Shardlake books. In this one Matthew and his assistant travel to Hampshire to investigate a case of possible wrongdoing against ward of court. There's murder, mischief and Bedlam (literally and figuratively) before Matthew can get to the bottom of everything that has been going on. Brilliant book.
