An apocalyptic novel without zombies! An excellent novel where the world population is decimated by flu. An excellent book offering a different view of the world after our world.

This book won the same award as “The Dry” by Jane Harper (Another Great Book). This book has great, original characters (even if you don’t like them), a world that I knew very little about and a mystery that will keep you guessing. I thought I had it all figured out only to find that the author had cleverly gone off in another direction. An interesting and different mystery.

Julia Quinn writes Regency romances.
They are funny, lighthearted and cute with a big AWWWWW factor. There are no contrived subplots just engaging characters falling in love. There is some spice in there but all in all they are just a nice, light read where you know that everything is going to be worked out and you will always get your HEA! (Happy Ever After)

Really good thriller with varying viewpoints & jumping backwards and forwards between 1999 and 2015 as the whole story slowly comes together. Creepy and atmospheric you will be left with an eerie feeling at the end.

Set in, a slightly in the future, San Francisco this cop noir novel will slowly pull you in. The pacing is measured and this new world has disturbing parallels with the current world. As for the ending…well- you don’t expect me to give everything away, do you?

I usually borrow Debbie Macomber books as Audiobooks. It’s like going for a drive with a gossipy friend who knows heaps of peoples and hearing stories of what they have been up to. Her books are generally set in small communities in North America and commonly have romantic elements. I find them undemanding and relatively enjoyable. I suggest you start with the “Cedar Cove” series.
