  • Yes salvos and other place like that have so many books I just went into the Salvos last week and came home with a stack of new books

  • Have you read the hunger games set, Twighlight series, and the vampire diaries? All better than the movies I think.

  • LIbraries have great online options for borrowing ebooks and audiobooks

  • Op shops are great for this, or the local library/libraries. There is an endless supply of books. I find jodi picolt books easy to read, however, sometimes the do have some M rated content.

  • My daughter bought a heap of books from her local tip shop. Lots of great titles, big names and various genres. All were under a dollar

  • I would go to the local library and browse that section and see what takes your fancy

  • I’ve become a big Liane Moriaty fan, she’s an Aussie author too so I like supporting local talent. I also enjoy fantasy…have read Raymond E Feist collection, books about Drizzt the dark elf inspired by dungeons and dragons…those were stand outs for me :)

  • I go to a lot of local libraries. I’m lucky to have a few in my area

  • Anything by Jojo Moyes or Nicholas Sparks

  • I’d read reviews on Goodreads and then buy online.

  • Not sure where you live so no idea what shops you have. Here in Tas we have Shiploads. They regularly have heaps of super cheap, great reads. I stock up when I visit, brilliant reads

  • Isobel Carmody is my favourite young adult fantasy fiction.
    She has series, but I think her standalone books are better.

  • Harlequin books have a young adult section on their website and I think you can follow them on Facebook. Allen and Unwin Teen have a Facebook page. Most Australian book publishers have newsletters and a site you can hunt for the type of books you like. Other publishers are Pan Macmillan, Hachette, Allen and Unwin and Harper Collins. Goodreads is a massive website that has reviews and genre sections.

  • Try –
    ‘The Throne of Glass’ series : by Sarah J Maas,
    ‘After’ series : by Anna Todd
    ‘Maze Runner’ series : by James Dashner
    ‘His Dark Materials’ : by Philip Pullman

  • I just did a review on one that was released August this year it is great! Great book to read! Where the Dead Go by Sarah Bailey.

    From the first few pages this crime novel dragged me in. The character Gemma who is introduced early in the story, I related to her warmth straight away. Whilst dealing with her small son’s grief and being the main Detective on a missing girl case she has a lot to deal with. ‘Where the Dead Go’ is full of plots and twists and turns which keeps the reader on edge. Just when I thought I had worked it out I was surprised again.
    The author Sarah Bailey has a simplistic style of writing that creates a visual picture of what is happening and to the point where I thought I was in the town with her questioning the missing girl’s boyfriend. Gripping tale of crime right to the very end. I would recommend reading this book and if you are into Crime this one is as accurate as they come. Brilliant story line and brilliant writing. Published by Allan and Unwin Australia. It is a winner!
