I picked up this book at the Nunawading Library sale. Why was I at Nunawading Library? I’m not sure, but there was a good reason. I do remember looking at the books on sale and thinking this looked promising. I put it on my TBR pile and left it long ...

This is one of those books that was banned way back when. It came across my desk some time ago but I only opened it recently. I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about without doing lots of research…although, some people might think that reading the entire ...

This is a mixture between detective and romance. I’m using it in the Dymocks Reading Challenge 2021 in the book with more than 400 pages category. Despite the romance I managed to make it through, but I did consider giving up a few times. What kept me going were the ...

This book is part of the Dymocks Reading Challenge for 2021. It goes into the Ask a Dymocks bookseller category. I was walking through Chadstone Shopping Centre three weeks ago before this latest outbreak of Covid shut everything down. I saw Dymocks and had to go in for photos. While ...

This was one of the books given to me to place in a Little Library. The person also recommended I should read it before sending it off for someone else to read. Holy moley! This is the story of Anna. She is a Surplus and has been delivered to Grange ...

This author is one of those people whose writing I treasure. Jones has the ability to take me straight into a world I would never have dreamed of. It is beautifully written and I find myself empathising with a number of the characters. The premise of the story is that ...

I received this from Bionic Book Subscription. It’s the second of the three month subscription they’ve given me. I’ve been a bit slack in reading all three books. I still haven’t even opened the third parcel from them. It’s sitting on my desk and I’m wondering if I’ll do an ...

This is the sequel to the article I wrote on book one a couple of years ago. I’m not sure I can write as well as I did that day, but I’ll give it a go. I read The Girl Who Played with Fire closely followed by The Girl Who ...

I’ve been given a pile of books to leave in a street library. Before I follow orders I’m reading the ones that interest me, this is one of them. But I’m sure you figured that out, else why would I be scribbling words about it? It’s Young Adult and in ...

Published in June 1968 this book is nicely aged. There are a few issues with the corners but the stories are still as new as they were back in 1968. Not that I remember 1968, but the book does and that’s more important. I’m sure you know by now how ...

This book is the final book in the series by Jones. I’ve been reading them as they come out, it makes a change from reading a series in whatever order I happen to find them. I hadn’t realised they were only a trilogy until I read the back of the ...

I’ve read so much over the last few months and blogged so little I have a huge pile of books to write about. Four of those books are by the same author so it makes sense to write something about the writing in general, or the author…but who knows what ...

This anthology was gifted to me for the purpose of a review. I don’t always review the books I’m given as I don’t like to write negative reviews but this one was just so brilliant that my fingers have no choice but to type up some words. I had actually ...

I love anthologies. I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it many more times. This book is no exception. There are eight stories, eight different incarnations of Doctor Who by eight really brilliant authors and they all fill a need in some form or other. I bought this ...
