I’ve just finished the Dress Maker but am stuck as to another good book to read. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • The Help :)

  • The little coffee shop of kabul is a lovely easy holiday reading book.
    Delicious is good too by Ruth Reichl

  • Try “In The Quiet” – a brilliant, moving read. Australian too; and it was published in 2015 so should be widely available.

  • A bit different to the dressmaker but I recently enjoyed ‘the rosie project’ and the rosie effect. Australian comedy. Pretty lighthearted and easy to read

  • Dymocks has released their top 101 book list – maybe take a look at it for some ideas too. It is a good list and has given me some new books to read and some old favourites to re-read.

  • I have recently started reading a book called beautiful. I am also half way through Ellen’s latest book.

  • The Girl in the Spiders Web is the name of the fourth book in the Millenium series. The millennium series is a good read if you like grittier books.

  • If you read the trilogy of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, then the fourth book is now out. It’s well worth a read and I guess it wouldn’t be fully necessary to have read the first three as there are references to what happened, but it was good to have read them. I think it was called The Girl on the Spider’s Edge.

  • The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman is a fantastic book & Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden, i loved them both!

  • Jodie Taylor’s Just One Damn Thing After Another is really great. She’s got such a sassy writing style and this book had me hooked from chapter one.
    Happy reading :)

  • Do you want to read something Australian? You could try Monica McInerney. All her books are lovely! I enjoyed very much “Emerald Springs” by Fleur McDonald, “House of All Seasons” and “Simmering Season” by Jenn McLeod.

  • the judges cat, anything by jodi picoult, stephen king has lots of great stories

  • The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simmons or Destiny by Sally Beauman
