4. So Good Food You Want To Eat Designed By A Nutritionist H/B
by Emily English
When we think of nutrition and 'eating well' so many of us jump to the words 'diet', 'unenjoyable' and 'sacrifice'. Sometimes we can see healthy eating as something we should do rather than something you want to do. This book aims to change that. To alter your perception of eating well and shift away from an all or nothing approach.
Food, to me, means joy. It's a celebration, a memory, a moment. As I spent my life around food, I realised something profound: "We don't eat nutrients, we eat food, meals, flavour." I sought to close the gap between the scientific and the savoury, to bring the joy back to nutrition through my debut cook book SO GOOD.
SO GOOD grew into a movement. It's not about counting calories; it's about making every meal COUNT. It's about loving the food that loves you back and transforming how people look at healthy eating. Let every bite you take not only nourish your body but feed your soul with the simple delight of SO GOOD. Let's bring the joy back to nutrition, back to our lives, back to our plates, and never forget that food, at its core, is joy.
Food, to me, means joy. It's a celebration, a memory, a moment. And I invite you to join me on this journey, where food becomes a symbol of joy, nourishment, and love. Let's cook together, laugh together, and make every meal a moment that's SO GOOD.

14. Small Space Revolution H/B
by Tayshan Hayden-Smith
Create green outdoor spaces no matter how small and see how transformative they can be.
Gardener and activist Tayshan Hayden Smith demonstrates 20 different practical projects you can create to positively change small outdoor spaces and pulls out inspiration from a variety of successful community gardens around the world.
Tayshan’s practical advice will help you make the most of your projects, with easy-to-follow steps and photography alongside inspiring examples of how simple garden projects—on even the smallest scale and budget—can open the doors to better well-being, uniting communities and reviving natural spaces to help create the greener future we’re all fighting for.
Reconnect with the outdoor space around you—perhaps start growing your own food or build a learning bed to educate children (and even adults) about the soil beneath their feet. Begin to reimagine how even the smallest of spaces can be green and living—transform a drainpipe into the perfect trellis for a climbing clematis or construct a pollinator wall out of repurposed tin cans to support local wildlife.
Tayshan underpins all his practical takeaways with inspiring manifestos on why we need to improve small spaces, the environmental benefits for nature, and the wider issues around connections with growing and greening space. He also emphasizes the importance of recycling and reusing, both for the environment and keeping costs down.
Most importantly, his message is clear: Everyone can play their part in creating green spaces to benefit us as individuals, communities, and the environment, too.
15. Garden Against Time H/B
by Olivia Laing
A garden contains secrets, we all know that: buried elements that might put on strange growth or germinate in unexpected places. The garden that I chose had walls, but like every garden it was interconnected, wide open to the world . . .
In 2020, Olivia Laing began to restore a walled garden in Suffolk, an overgrown Eden of unusual plants. The work drew her into an exhilarating investigation of paradise and its long association with gardens. Moving between real and imagined gardens, from Milton’s Paradise Lost to John Clare’s enclosure elegies, from a wartime sanctuary in Italy to a grotesque aristocratic pleasure ground funded by slavery, Laing interrogates the sometimes shocking cost of making paradise on earth.
But the story of the garden doesn’t always enact larger patterns of privilege and exclusion. It’s also a place of rebel outposts and communal dreams. From the improbable queer utopia conjured by Derek Jarman on the beach at Dungeness to the fertile vision of a common Eden propagated by William Morris, new modes of living can and have been attempted amidst the flower beds, experiments that could provevital in the coming era of climate change.
The result is a humming, glowing tapestry, a beautiful and exacting account of the abundant pleasures and possibilities of gardens: not as a place to hide from the world but as a site of encounter and discovery, bee-loud and pollen-laden
