Grey Magic (Preview) JT Lawrence

Meet Raven Kane: an eccentric, hexing-and-texting witch with a special talent for attracting trouble. Raven is a hip, hexing-and-texting sorceress – or at least, she used to be. Now her ancient timber house is falling down around her, and nothing would make her cantankerous neighbour happier than seeing Raven and her messy menagerie out on the street. Worst of all is that her magic seems to be fading. Just as everything seems to be too much to handle, there’s a knock on the (splintering) door. A not-unattractive man appears in her life: not to save her, as a fairytale would have you believe, but to arrest her for the murder of one of her clients. It wouldn’t be that bad for Raven, except that she knows she's guilty.

The Underachieving Ovary (Preview) JT Lawrence

"Hilarious & Heartbreaking" ✮✮✮✮✮ Will there be light at the end of the birth canal? Does the word ‘endometriosis’ make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No? Then perhaps this book isn’t for you. It’s funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for ‘vagina’ and it’s certainly NSFW. It’s about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It’s about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, and then slowly finding a way to untwist. It’s part memoir, part dark comedy, wrapped up loosely as a journal full of TMI and quirk. Let me put it this way: If Helen Fielding and Marian Keyes were to go through IVF, and use Caitlin Moran as a surrogate, this book would be their baby.
