Three distinctly different titles this fortnight – a fairytale reimagining, gritty neo-noir and an award winning short story collection. Beauty in Thorns by Kate Forsyth [ Available for pre-order Book Depository | Amazon | Bookworld(Aus) ] I am long time fan of Forsyth’s writing (Bitter Greens, The Wild Girl, The Beast’s Garden). Beauty in Thorns is one of […]
Three distinctly different titles this fortnight – two literary, two in translation, two yet to be released. October is the Coldest Month by Christoffer Carlsson [ Available for pre-order Book Depository | Amazon | Bookworld(Aus) ] Hot on the heels of his bestselling Scandinavian crime series featuring Leo Junker, Swedish author Christoffer Carlsson has now directed his […]
Two psychological thrillers to get excited about. The Girl in Kellers Way by Megan Goldin [ Available for pre-order Book Depository | Bookworld(Aus) | Amazon ] Described as “a heart-stopping novel of deception and delusion from an exciting new Australian author of domestic noir”, this will be published by Penguin Books on 29 May 2017.
Two very different titles – a crime thriller in translation and an audiobook which sounds like lots of fun. Fatal Crossing by Lone Theils [ Book Depository | Bookworld(Aus) ] A Danish crime debut which has already sold more than 10,000 copies and featured prominently in the Danish bestseller charts.
Only two titles this fortnight, one a much anticipated sequel and the other a lovely surprise.

So I have been looking forward to […]

We have a very international mix of titles in this edition of Booklover Mailbox. The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova [ Amazon | Book Depository ] Over a decade ago a dear friend gifted me Elizabeth Kostova’s debut novel The Historian – I absolutely loved it and have recommended it to countless people since. Years pass between this author’s releases, but her 2010 release […]
Happy New Year book lovers! More great titles added to my reading pile, the bulk Christmas gifts – lucky me. A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles Having absolutely adored Amor Towles’ debut novel Rules of Civility back in 2011, his much anticipated second novel earned a spot on my wish list pre-publication. Have heard so many […]
Lots of great fiction just in time for the holiday reading season. The Hidden Hours by Sara Foster I’ve read lost of good things about this Australian author’s earlier titles (Come Back to Me, All That Is Lost Between Us) and this title set for release in April 2017 sounds gripping. ARC from Simon & Schuster. UPDATE: Read […]
