Doesn’t Time Fly?

Here it is December 2016 already.  I cant believe it – this year has flown by, life has been busy; a grandson was born and he is now 8 months old.  Recipes have been tried and tested and many books have been read and reviewed – around the one hundred seventy mark thus far.

I am enjoying sharing the joy of reading with my grandson (with  appropriate titles) – it is never too early to encourage a love of reading.

Recently I invited a couple of ardent readers to share some of their favoruite reads on my site – to broaden the type of book reviews available here.  I hope you find some new favourite books and authors.  Thank you Bec and Brenda.


The reading year has not yet wound up – there is a blog tour ahead; the launch of Rachel Amphlett’s new police procedural series, Scared to Death. There is a   Q & A with debut Perth writer Anthea Hodgson, a Christmas menu to compile and share and a series of “best of 2016 reads” for you to comment on and…more reviews.



Seasons greetings to you.

  1. It has been quite a year, hasn’t it, Carol? I’m so happy for your family that your grandson’s doing so well. What a joy. And you’ve shared some great reads and mouth-watering recipes, too. So I know your reading year’s been a good ‘un. 🙂 Wishing you all the best for the holiday season!

  2. I am convinced that the older we get the quicker the months go every year Carol. Wonderful that you are already reading to your grandson, we have a new initiative here called 1000 books before school – you are doing the right thing Carol, children who read early in life will be better prepared for school 😊 I have surpassed my reading goal this year and have read the most books ever, yes the addiction is alive and well 👍🏻

      • Carol, I’ve waited until the end of the year to do my list – and its 11 of the best, in no particular order, I just couldn’t leave any one of these out!

        *Love at first flight – Tess Woods – (I actually read this twice – something i never do)
        A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald – Natasha Lester
        The Sand Dollar – Maggie Christensen
        *The ties that bind – Lexi Landsman
        Journey’s end – Jennifer Scoullar
        The Art of Keeping Secrets – Rachael Johns
        *The two family house – Lydia Cohen Loigman
        *With love from the inside – Angela Pisel
        A Mother’s Confession – Kelly Rimmer
        The Light Between Oceans – M L Stedman

        *Debut novels – I am excited by what will follow with these authors

        9 out of 11 are by Australian Authors and all of them I would class as Women’s Fiction which is my favourite genre.
