Book Haul – 3 March 2020

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done a Book Haul post, and in that time I’ve gotten a few amazing novels that I am looking forward to reading.  As I have already read one of the books on this list and I am planning to start getting through another one tomorrow, I thought that this would be a good time to highlight them in a Book Haul post.  So sit back and check out the awesome swag I’ve been lucky enough to receive.

A Testament of Character by Sulari Gentill

This first book in this post is A Testament of Character by Sulari Gentill, the tenth book in the long-running Rowland Sinclair series.  Now I am definitely not putting this book first because it quotes one of my old reviews from The Canberra Times on the back cover (see below), but because it is part of a really enjoyable series of Australian historical crime fiction books.  The Rowland Sinclair series has been a real highlight of my reading calendar each year and I am going to start reading this book next.

Black Leviathan by Bernd Perplies

This is an awesome fantasy novel that is essentially Moby Dick with dragons.  I have actually just finished this one off in the last couple of hours and I will hopefully get a review written up for it soon.  It was really good though, and I had a fantastic time reading it.

The Deceptions by Suzanne Leal

The Deceptions

An Australian historical fiction novel partially set in the Jewish ghetto of Theresienstadt.  This will no doubt be a  heavy and compelling novel and I am curious to see what sort of story Leal writes.

Red Dirt Country by Fleur McDonald

This is a rural crime novel set in outback Australia.  I have heard good things about McDonald’s books in the past and I am looking forward to reading this unique piece of fiction.

A User’s Guide to Make-Believe by Jane Alexander

A captivating thriller that appears to follow someone stuck in a virtual reality.  There have been some great technology based thrillers out lately and I am looking forward to seeing what happens in this one.

Hitler’s Secret by Rory Clements

Hitler's Secret Cover

This is the fourth book in Clements’ Tom Wilde series of historical thrillers.  I have really enjoyed these books over the last couple of years and have read and reviewed all three prior novels, including Nucleus and NemesisHitler’s Secret sounds like it is going to be the most exciting one yet, and I am hoping to read it very soon.


Well that concludes my latest book haul post.  Let me know which of the above books sounds the most interesting to you and I will try to read and review them as soon as possible.
