February 17, 2018 by readingwritingandriesling In the Mail 17th February 2018 What a great week or two of new arrivals – my bookshelf is toppling over with the weight 🙂 Among these some great Australian women writers…now where to start? Any recommendations? Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
That’s a great haul Carol, are you keeping up with it all these days?
It’s difficult I have to make some tough decisions- those that I haven’t actually requested mostly take the back seat I am afraid.
Wow would love to have some of those on my coffee table xx
Any particular one you think I should start with on this pile?
Those Other Women – Nicola Moriaty or Lucy Diamond – On a Beautiful Day xx
thanks for the suggestions
Your welcome, looking forward to your reviews
Impressive haul there Carol 🙂 How many were requested and how many unsolicited, can I ask? I’d begin with one of the requested ones first.
If the top of my head- about 70% unsolicited-but it varies each week. Yes that’s my plan- though some interesting non requested ones here too-so many good books… I think I need a holiday away in the caravan to do a catch up.
A very good problem to have. I think I could do with a reading intensive holiday too. No sight seeing, just reading great books.
So exciting to be able to dip into a brand new pile of books! And these look fantastic Carol.
As to which one to pick up first, I really enjoyed Nicola Moriarty’s The Fifth Letter, so i would probably start with her new one & quickly follow with Panic Room. Robert Goddard is one of my many favorites 😊
Looking forward to finding out which you choose. Happy reading!
Thanks for the recommendations Anne-I haven’t read anything by those particular authors before- glad to know you enjoy their writing. A quick scan and I think all but 2authors in this lot are all new to me writers.
The only other author that I’m familiar with is Andrea Camillieri who writes a long series. I haven’t read any of these but i think the series is numbering in the 20s now. Another one in your pile tweeked my interest; The Pearler’s Wife. Is this by an Australian author?
The Pearlers wife inspired by the writers time in Broome Western Australia, “where she stumbled across a fascinating moment in Australian history which sparked the idea for her first novel.” I have lived and worked in Broome -the setting of this one appeals to me.
