A Fortunate Life | A B Facey
post image

Over the past few months I've (obsessively) been cataloguing all of my novels.
I've yet to catalogue my husbands books & mine and my kids YA section of our bookshelves, but they are on the to-do list!
This, I've found, is one of the most relaxing things to do & my go-to activity when I'm feeling stressed or tired.

This app is so great as I can walk into any book or op shop & quickly look up to see if I own a book that catches my eye.

Nothing to See Here | Kevin Wilson

Nothing To See Here was One of my top 10 favorite reads from 2019. I loved its message that family isn‘t always defined by DNA. In Wilson‘s novel, two children are capable of spontaneous combustion. Every time I see the cover I think of the fires in Australia, so I am going to donate one dollar for every like this post generates up to $500 to WIRES native animal rescue. .

The Lost Man | Jane Harper

Not as addictive as The Dry but better than Force of Nature so far. I‘m still enjoying this op shop find. It‘s for my 2nd audition for a very selective book club. Let‘s hope I get in this time. I‘m never going to give up. My feet were swollen today so I spent the arvo soaking them in the ocean. Bliss! I do wish my summer holidays weren‘t over. I went back to school this week. The weather is supposed to be great for swimming this weekend.

Lauredhel You have to audition for a book club? Yikes. Do they put you on probation if you get in but have an off day down the track? 3w
Rissreads What? Auditioning for a book club? This sounds soooooo interesting! Tell me more! 3w

The Lost Man | Jane Harper

Set in the brutal isolation of the Australian outback, The Lost Man is the story of three brothers, one of whom is found dead of dehydration under inexplicable circumstances. Nathan Bright, the oldest brother, is forced to engage with his family history and his own withdrawal from society as he learns more about his brother's life. This book was emotionally gripping while vividly capturing an alien and unforgiving landscape. Brilliantly done.

Rolls sprouted the virtues of Astraleba lappacea (Curly Mitchell grass). ... Panicum decompositum (Mitchell's native millet) and Themeda Avanacea (native oatgrass) and ... native rices...I bet a stall in any city market could sell flours from these grains at premium prices to whole food enthusiasts... We seem to be stuck on wattle seed and lemon myrtle, but supply a few good cooks .. and watch as ...develops a genuine Australian cuisine.

What would happen if we turned away from total reliance on sheep and cattle and diversified into emu and kangaroo?... The utilisation of those animals that are already adapted to our climate and geography, and that damage it less as a result, should become the subject of serious ecological and economic debate in Australia.

This is Jane Harper‘s third book, and it is a stand alone, not part of her Aaron Falk series, but it is so good! It is set in the harsh landscape of the Australian outback, a character in itself, at a cattle station. While it is about a mysterious death, it is also about a secretive and dysfunctional family. I could not put it down! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
