YA & Kids

Red Queen

Victoria Aveyar

Victoria Aveyard is a startlingly brilliant new voice in YA fiction, and is an author we believe adults will enjoy just as much as teenagers (not least because everyone at Kobo who has read Red Queen loves it). We defy you not to fall in love with Mare Barrow - and the richly-imagined world in which she lives.

Science Fiction & Fantasy

The Three-Body Problem

Cixin Liu

The best SF novel of the year won this year's Hugo Award and not surprisingly - it is complex and rich with ideas about gaming, civiliations, science, humankind and even alien contact. The author is a bestseller in his native China - and looks set to be the world over now this title is translated into English.

Best Books on Film

The Dressmaker

Rosalie Ham

We fell in love with the highly visual, gothic imagery, evocative of the Victorian countryside, and found the author's dark humor to be both hilarious and clever. Houte couture and rural Australia are what made this novel a bestseller, and now you can watch it on the big screen, too.
