  • any by Kathy Kelly she is my Favourite. Also read Love Your Sister it is AMAZING by Samual Johnson

  • I just finished The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood. I loved it. It did have some holes in the plot, but the writing style was so easy and absorbing.

  • I like a wide range of authors:
    easy reading/comedy: Sophie Kinesella, Milly Johnson
    thrillers: Kathy Reichs, Joy Ellis, Nikki French, Michael Robotham, etc
    Also Jodi Piccoult
    There are some interesting biographies and memoirs too.

  • Just finishing Shuggie Bain. Love it.

    If you like non-fiction, read We Can’t Say we Didn’t Know by Sophie McNiell. It documents the stories of people she met while ABC correspondent in the Middle East. Important read.

    Eleanor Oliphant by Gail Honeymoon is a great easy page turner, also I like boy swallows universe by Trent dalton.

    Bryce Courtenay is a brilliant author, Sarah J Maas is great – currently reading her Throne of Glass series and it’s amazing but also enjoy her other books.
    Naomi Novik is another good author, Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton was interesting!
    I could go on : )
