Hullo fellow book lovers!

Spring has sprung and over the last few weeks we've been busy seeking out great reads for you to enjoy in the sunshine!

Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin
(Penguin Books Australia, Aug. 2015)

Eighteen years ago Tessie thought she put a murderer behind bars, but now an innocent man faces execution and the real killer is bringing her flowers. 

Black-Eyed Susans is a suspense driven, page-flippin’ thriller that offers a little more than your average crime novel.

The Light That gets Lost by Natasha Carthew
(Bloomsbury, Nov. 2015)

The Light That Gets Lost a forceful, intelligent read: violent and bleak but edged with resilience and hope. A dystopian YA novel that cuts through the clutter.

Girl Defective by Simmone Howell
(Pan Macmillan Australia, 2013)

Girl Defective is a hard boiled coming-of-age story with smarts and sass: 'the story of a wild girl and a ghost girl; a boy who knew nothing and a boy who thought he knew everything. And it’s about life and death and grief and romance. All the good stuff.’
