2017 is determined to spoil us when it comes to books, so where do you start?
There are a slew of novels that place intimate family stories against the background of huge social, political and cultural change - Min Jin Lee's Pachinko, Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing and Ayobami Adebayo's Stay With Me are all stunning.
Emma Flint's Little Deaths and Sarah Schmidt's See What I Have Done both take their inspiration from real-life crimes, and create addictive stories full of depth and great characters, while Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes will have you tearing through the pages to get to the shocking ending.
Roxane Gay tackles short stories in her new collection, all focusing on strong, complex women, while Laura Barnett's Greatest Hits is as readable a story as her debut The Versions of Us.
In non-fiction, two very different yet equally important reads should be on your radar next year - Omar Saif Ghabash's Letters to a Young Muslim and June Sarpong's Diversify.
