Great Reads! Books We’ve Been Reading

I realised I have been a bit quiet lately and I haven’t really posted a lot about what I’ve been reading. What better excuse do I need to rave about all the wonderful books my book crazy colleagues and I have been devouring over the last month or so?

I have steadily been working my way through all the titles I mentioned in my ‘Coming Soon! Books I can’t Wait to Read’ post and thoroughly enjoying all of them. No surprise there as they are authors I have enjoyed in the past.

However, I have also discovered some new authors which is always exciting! Not to mention that when I see what my colleagues have been reading and enjoying I end up with even more books on my list. There really aren’t enough hours in the day to fit in all the amazing books I want to read, especially when I have to fit in my crafting time as well (look out for an upcoming post on my crafting exploits and the craft books I can’t seem to stop borrowing).

I hope you discover something new to read from this list, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

Reserve your copy now!

Happy Reading


Honeybee by Craig Silvey master writer extraordinaire! What would I do in a world without ‘Jasper Jones’ and now ‘Honeybee’! – Jody. It is a 5/5 from all of us!

The Mother Fault by Kate Mildenhall

When She was Good by Michael Robotham. A new author for me. I know don’t roll your eyes,

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue

Troubled Blood (Cormoran Strike, #5) by Robert Galbraith

Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #3) by Jessica Townsend. A great read for kids and adults alike! There are a lot of us here who have been eagerly awaiting the release of the next book and we weren’t disappointed. Do yourself a favour and try them all!

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead

Return Ticket by Jon Doust

Survivors by Jane Harper. Jane Harper can do no wrong in our eyes, I think she could write about the most boring subject and I would still enjoy it!

All Our Shimmering Skies by Trent Dalton

People of the River by Grace Karskens. I can’t remember why I wanted to read this one, I think maybe I read an article about it. Either way, while it is not a book to get through in one weekend, I am enjoying the history and the writing style makes it easy to read for a hefty history book.
