• #holidayreads for Grown-Ups

    Three powerful must-read novels to put on your holiday reading list - The Hate Race, a powerful, funny, moving and beautifully crafted memoir about growing up black in white middle-class Australia - reading it could teach us all how not to be; Between a Wolf and a Dog, an elegant and delicately emotional portrayal of one family’s relationships and of their everyday struggle to love each other in the shadow of mortality, grief and forgiveness and The Natural Way of Things - a ferocious exploration of contemporary misogyny and corporate control, which is both provocative and fearless as it reveals us and our world to ourselves.

  • #holidayreads from a Favourite New Author

    There are some authors that you just want to read everything they’ve ever written because you’ve fallen in love with their writing style, character development, and plot lines. I have not felt this way about an author since I was in year 6 and reading Tamora Pierce‘s series, such as Song of the Lioness, Daughter of the Lioness, Circle of Magic, and The Circle Opens, until recently. For me that author is now Sarah J Maas; author of Throne of Glass series and the A Court of Thorns and Roses series.
