Jody’s Winter Reading Picks


Blog Post Jody's Picks(1)


Now the colder weather has really started to settle in, the first thought that pops in to my head is all the great books I can curl up with in front of the fire and read.

This winter I am eagerly awaiting two books in particular. Of which I am happy to say are by Australian authors.


xtruly-madly-guilty.jpg.pagespeed.ic.-Se4QCZHKZThe one at the very top of my list is Liane Moriarty’s new book, Truly Madly Guilty. Released in July, myself along with quite a lot of my colleagues can’t wait to read this one! I have really enjoyed all of Liane’s books and I just know this one will be good, because really why wouldn’t it be? All of Liane’s books are enjoyable, easy to read and have great storylines.


What if they hadn’t gone? That’s the question Clementine can’t stop asking herself. It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn’t know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no.

But she and her husband Sam said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn’t do that beautiful winter’s day.

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One yapping dog. It’s a normal weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

It was just an ordinary Sunday afternoon…

Now if that blurb doesn’t make you want to read the book, I don’t know what will.Do you think it could be considered work if I sit quietly at my desk and read all day? I would of course promise to post a review when I’ve finished!


blameThe second is Blame by Nicole Trope. I recently finished reading Three Hours Late and The Silence of Secrets by Nicole and I enjoyed both books,  even if the

story lines were a little confronting.

Blame I think will be just as good. I think Nicole has a talent for creating real and believable characters that you become invested in and need to know how they cope and survive through some terrible and hard situations. Which is what I am expecting from Blame. I can’t wait!

There has been an accident and a child has died.

There has been an accident and two mothers are destroyed. Two families will never be the same.

There has been an accident but who is to blame?
