Novel is a pop-up book shop in Sheffield, South Yorkshire ran by Kate + Joe.
They sell a curated selection of their favourite reads. They sift through contemporary releases to find the most inspiring, innovative, and thought-provoking books out there, and at the centre of the curation is a diverse list of authors, themes, and publishers.
"After over a decade of relentless discussions about opening a bookshop, we realised there was no time like the present to make the dream come true rather than keeping it as the ultimate retirement project. Joe & I add a curated selection of our favourite books each month to Novel’s range, that we have read and loved, and hope you will too. We'll have a range of gift ideas for the bookworms you're shopping for this festive season, from board books for little ones through to exciting contemporary releases for adults. We can't wait to see you there!"

MUSHROOM MAGIC CACAO BLEND - 'Naturally stress-reducing, clarity-inducing, and soothing. Self-love in a mug.'
Mushroom Magic Cacao combines the medicinal powers of five super mushrooms with antioxidant-rich raw Peruvian cacao for an invigorating and creamy elixir that hits the spot like a classic hot chocolate, just without the sugar crash. Fairtrade is important, so we source our organic cacao from cooperatives and family farms, where the beans are minimally processed to retain their natural goodness. All our organic medicinal mushrooms undergo a thorough extraction process to increase bioavailability and induce clarity.
GOLDEN HOUR MUSHROOM MIX - 'Sip the sunshine.'
Inspired by ancient Ayurvedic wisdom, Golden Hour Mushroom Mix combines anti-inflammatory turmeric with five of our favourite medicinal mushroom extracts for a warming and gently spicy blend to brighten up any day. Our pure organic sun-dried turmeric is ethically sourced and hand-harvested from small-scale family allotments in Sri Lanka and boasts a double-strength curcumin content. We've added aromatic organic black pepper and coconut milk powder to enhance bioavailability and absorption. Enjoy this golden tonic when you need a little boost or feel achy; it's the perfect way to get your daily dose of medicinal mushrooms with turmeric's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
GOLDEN HOUR MUSHROOM MIX - Your immune system's best friend.
Fungi Fire Cider is an old-time remedy that supports digestion, aids circulation and can help to reduce inflammation when taken daily. This spicy, zesty, and immune-rejuvenating tonic is made with raw apple cider vinegar, powerhouse herbs and roots such as horseradish, onion, garlic, ginger, and cayenne, with the added medicinal benefits from cordyceps, reishi and lion's mane mushroom extracts. Cordyceps is a nourishing adaptogen which helps the body adapt to stress, reishi is a nervine which nourishes the nervous system, whilst lion's mane supports brain health and cognitive function. Each serving packs an invigorating punch of flavour, spice and health.
