The school holidays are finally here and I can’t wait to get some reading in! I’m going to take a break for the next few weeks, but thought I would leave you with a list of what’s on my To Be Read pile in the holidays. As you will see below, I jump around a bit with my reading so I’ve already started some of these.
Begin, End, Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology (Edited by Danielle Binks)
I really like short stories, and some of my favourite Australian YA authors have written stories for this book. I’m looking forward to bringing you a review next term.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve just started this one and I am really liking it! It’s my current ‘bus read’ – which is fitting, given it’s about two misfits in America in the 1980s who meet on the school bus.
The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King
I am a real Sherlock Holmes fan and recently started reading this one, which is the story of 15-year-old Mary Russell who stumbles across the retired Sherlock Holmes in 1915 and works with him to solve a crime. So far, it’s great!
Young Sherlock Holmes (Death Cloud) by Andrew Lane
I can’t wait to get into this one, which is the first book in a series! Sherlock Holmes is 14 and is sent to live with his aunt and uncle, where he uncovers his first murder…
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
I am about halfway through this at the moment and I am really looking forward to having some time to get it finished. It’s a big book, but the story is really interesting and I’m enjoying it. The language is beautiful.
Wreck by Fleur Ferris
I recently won this in a Twitter competition and it’s been getting great reviews so I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about!
Happy school holidays – see you next term!
