Heart on Fire
By Amanda Bouchet
The third installment in the Kingmaker Chronicles. Game of Thrones meets Lord of the Rings with a sprinkling of Disney magic and myth. Bouchet's style is sharp, honest and at times a little steamy. Very steamy. Full on steam room.
I am addicted. Our female protagonist is everything you could hope for - Strong, self doubting, passionate, fearful and fearless all at the same time. She possibly the most realistic element of this fantasy world.
By Sebastian Fitzek
Murder mysteries are not usually my bag - but this was bloody brilliant! Fitzek takes you into a strange and un-nerving world... crammed into one apartment.
Unexpected, insular, intense - highly recommended.
The Marble collector
By Cecelia Ahern
I was on the hunt for a 'gentle' read and asked my lovely nan to recommend something and what a good recommendation it was. Delightful, sweet, entertaining and with an air of mystery, this is a gentle Sunday read to curl up on the couch with.
By David Mitchell
Cool. Cool. Cool. Clever, different, modern, super refreshing. Read it. Reeead it.
This is one of the most imaginative things i've read and surprised with every page turn.
Grief is the thing with feathers
By Max Porter
This really is like nothing I have ever read. But then again, grief was like nothing I had ever experienced. Impossible to put into words, and that I think, is not what Porter is trying to do with this imaginative novel. Instead the delightfully bewildering form takes centre stage and says so much within its 114 pages. A short read with a huge impact.
Go set a watchman
By Harper Lee
I wish I could write something powerful. Meaningful here. I can't. There's not really a delicate way to say this to you Harper Lee fans out there, but this was pants. The beloved characters are distorted. As a child they were so vividly real to me. I knew Scout. Perhaps I just needed to read watchman as a child... or maybe I just missed something?
