Wow, what a week for books. I got an amazing selection from a variety of publishers that I am really excited to read. I also got a couple of books I bought online that I have been looking forward to for a while. This is a fantastic collection and I hope I get to read and review all of them.
This is an excellent sounding Australian adventure story, which I have just started to read. Already 40 pages in and really enjoying it.
This is an intriguing novel that is already getting a lot of interest. I am looking forward to checking out this book’s curious story.
A compelling techno-thriller from one of the screenwriters of Jurassic Park, should be pretty epic.
Another intriguing sounding piece of Australian fiction. I quite enjoyed Park’s last book, Scent of Fear, and this sounds like it will be an interesting historical adventure.
The latest book from bestselling author Garth Nix. I absolutely loved Nix’s Old Kingdom series when I was younger and I a very keen to check out his new series.
Another book that dives in Australia’s history. This one should be a really good political thriller.
Not sure if I’ll get a chance to read this one, but it still sounds like it could be a lot of fun.
This is an excellent sounding historical fiction novel that I have been looking forward to for a while. I really loved Sidebottom’s last book, The Last Hour, and this one should hopefully be just as awesome.
