light blue cover of Diving Belles featuring illustrations of a mermaid, crows, an old fashioned portable lamp and a large goldfish


If you’ve been anywhere near me in the last few weeks you will know I am beyond excited about ‘Diving Belles’ by Lucy Wood. I think I have recommended it to every fantasy fan and every lit geek who has shown even a vague interest in the title. And every time I rec it I am like ‘There are too many word I need to use here’ and also ‘Must not appear scary, or oversell it’. We all know the disappointment of realising you’ve set everyone’s expectations way too high.

Very minor spoilers of some story content included )

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
