This is an easy read – deceptively simple but one that left me thinking throughout. It’s definitely a page turner, quick plot & great characters. It also make you question yourself & your assumptions. 4/5 stars

Australian author Matthew Reilly’s books are like action movies and often feature a supernatural twist. Try “Ice Station,” the first in the Shane Schofield series, or “Temple,” which takes Professor William Race on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure in Peru.

Often angst-ridden but always funny, John Marsden writes with an insight into young adults’ minds that isn’t altered by his dry humour.

Fredrik Backman stories are quirky and upbeat, telling the tales of a diverse group of eccentric characters in modern-day Sweden. From obsessive compulsive Britt-Maree taking on the challenges of single life to a young girl exploring the magical and real world created by her grandmother, Backman novels are both funny and heartwarming. These books deal with real life issues whilst being light-hearted and entertaining. A totally different kind of setting to the darker side of Sweden we know from the Wallander and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series!

The latest series from this wonderful storyteller is The Seven Sisters, a set of seven novels based on the constellation The Pleiades. It follows the interesting backgrounds of adopted sisters. The fourth book ‘The Pearl sister’ is out soon and I can’t wait.

Tamora Pierce’s fantasy books feature a diverse cast, strong characters (she is most well-known for Alanna, the first female knight in Tortall in a hundred years), and rich, inventive world-building. I’m so looking forward to reading the upcoming “Tempests and Slaughter,” a prequel to the “Immortals.”
