Last Shot- Jock Zonfrillo

OMG this book.  Honestly, I don’t know what else to say.  This will absolutely be one of my favourite reads for the year.  I read the whole thing cover to cover in just over a day, I couldn’t put it down. It was engaging, it was funny, it was heartbreaking, it was raw, it was […]

Thursdays at Orange Blossom House – Sophie Green

I read this as part of a read-a-thon with a fabulous group of fellow bookstagrammers thanks to Tandem Collective. I’m so glad I did because this book is not something I think I would otherwise have picked up.  As most of you know I’m a bit of a thriller addict so if there’s no dead […]

Gun to the Head – Keith Banks

Gun to the Head is a fascinating look into the world of undercover police and the tactical side of the police force in the 1980’s. Ticking all those true-crime and memoir boxes, this was such a gripping read that I devoured over a weekend. Keith Banks is one of Queensland’s most decorated police officers having […]

Olympus, Texas – Stacey Swann

This was so much fun!! One of those books that is almost a guilty pleasure, a jam-packed read just for the thrill of it. Unlikeable characters, families behaving badly, affairs, marriage breakdowns, a suspicious death…..it’s too good to put down. March decides to return home to Olympus Texas, 2 years after being caught having an […]

Circus of Wonders – Elizabeth Macneal

Such a beautiful book.  It was both magical and lyrical and I was totally mesmerised the entire way through. For me, a wonderful read, a read that I will recommend to anyone and everyone is one that holds my attention.  A read that pulls me in and has me reading every single word on the […]

The French Gift – Kirsty Manning

Wow, what an amazing read this was.  One of those books that when I turned the last page I just sat there for a while and savoured what I had taken in and what I had experienced to let it all sink in. The French Gift is steeped in historical fiction set amongst the atrocities […]

The Husband Poisoner – Tanya Bretherton

So admittedly my husband was a little concerned when he discovered this book sitting on my kitchen bench – lol. This was such a fascinating read, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before.  I don’t usually read a lot of non-fiction books unless they are true crime related and often about stories that are well […]

What Could Be Saved – Liese O’Halloran Schwarz

5 Fabulous Stars for this stunning book. I loved this book so much, it honestly feels like there is a gaping hole in my heart where it used to sit. Described as rich with mystery and family drama, this compelling novel delves into the extraordinary power of sibling love, rivalry and loyalty.  The story begins […]

Dead Letters – Michael Brissenden

A dead politician, a mother’s letters from the grave, a daughter’s quest for answers. OMG I freaking loved this book!!!!  Corrupt politicians, dirty cops, mafia links, gangs, counter terrorism………..seriously, what’s not to love. I was a little nervous going into this one, it’s not the usual type of book I’m drawn to but honestly, once […]

Stalking Claremont – Bret Christian

Exactly as the title states, this book is about the hunt for a serial killer. It is the true story of the disappearance and murder of three young women between 1996 and 1997 from an upmarket suburb of Perth in Western Australia after nights out at a local club.  Sara Spiers disappeared during the early […]
