#26 Traces of Absence by Susan Holoubek
Another quickly chosen library book that was really interesting.

#7 My brilliant friend by elena ferrante. Didn't live up to the hype but not a bad read. Maybe I'm just not into ongoing family sagas ...

25. Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
Yeah I'm still reading this series, it's an easy read & just what I'm after at the moment!
Posted 25 February 2016 - 07:44 PM
I've just started the Mortal Instruments series... I actually quite like it. Not that I expected not to as I LOVE supernatural teen romancy angst books!

Finished Z for Zachariah. It really leaves you wishing there was a follow up book.
Now that I've finished 5 books (my goal was 6) I've gone and gotten ahead of myself and borrowed about 5 new books from the library. A couple are non fiction which I intend to skim unless they really grip me, but I think they'll be getting reborrowed a few times.
And with all this reading, the housework has gone to pot, but it's a happier household for the most part

So happy to read that greenthumbs
I've finished a couple but can't remember titles and authors so will update when it isn't so late.

#6 Wool by Hugh Howey.
I've read this before and liked it. It's an adult dystopian about a group of people living in a silo when the world becomes uninhabitable. I re-read because I've picked up the sequels now. I'm currently on the second one, Shift, and am enjoying it too.

Just finished book number 5 - Sex & Drugs & Guns N Roses, Steven Adler's biography. It's taken me a while to get through it.

No idea what # and am on ph so will record titles.
Aunt Dimity Detective by Nancy Atherton-usually love these but this one wasn't great.
Lost for Words by Edward St Aubyn-very funny and would have liked it to be longer
Posted 26 February 2016 - 08:11 AM
14.The Light Fantastic - Terry Pratchett
15. Exile - Rebecca Lim
16. The Dead - Charlie Higson
All of these are book two of their respective series - only just realised that!

#27 The Little House by Phillipa Gregory
A psychological thriller with the main drama being between a woman and her mother-in-law. I lend my MIL books all the time but I feel a little odd passing this one on.

#8 - After You by Jo Jo Moyles. Sequel to Me Before You. It was an easy page turner but not as good as the previous novel :-)

#7. Wrong way round - Lorna Hendry
A true-story of a family that travelled around Australia with a camper trailer, homeschooling their kids. I saw this reviewed in Thats Life magazine and it piqued my interest as we are into camping. It was a good read.

#4 The Tournament by Matthew Reilly. It was quite different from his other stuff but I enjoyed it and found the historical fiction side of it interesting
Posted 28 February 2016 - 11:01 PM
11. The Mortal Instruments book 1: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
12. The Mortal Instruments book 2: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare.
I am loving these books. I even watched the tv show Shadowhunters on Netflix that is based on this series it's great. Trashy but awesome.
I'm reading the third book now.

Just finished book number 6 - Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.
This is YA Fiction but I loved every minute of it. It brought back so many memories of the feelings you get with your first love. I do think it should've of ended earlier, the book just finished. I guess the author left it there as it could have a sequel written.

26. Listening To Country by Ros Moriarty
I loved this book! It is written by a women who spends a lot of time with Indigenous people in remote areas as her husband is Aboriginal. Highly recommend this.
