Forgot to post this yesterday. Had a little break from work sitting in Darling Square with my book and a doughnut 🍩
Read these yesterday and onto the final one today. I‘ve enjoyed this series, though it took me a little to get into.
Review up on my blog: http://www.gillyreads.com/review-beverly-right-here-by-kate-dicamillo
I have a new post up on the blog as part of #ausyabloggers Man in the Water blog tour.
I recommend if you like mystery, ya, or are interesting in life in remote Australia.
Posted a review of this book on the blog: https://www.gillyreads.com/review-the-surprising-power-of-a-good-dumpling-by-wai...
Forgot to post the other day. I went to the launch of The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling, where there were dumplings, and it was great. Really enjoying reading so far and it was very interesting to hear Wai Chim talk about the choices she made writing this book.
It deals with important topics like mental illness, racism and microagressions. #loveozya
Doing some research
I read this in April and finally just now posted my enthusiastic gushing review (it‘s a great book just read it)
Today was Love Your Bookshop Day here in Aus and I went to several of my favourite bookshops to show them some love. ❤️
If you‘d like some good Australian bookstores to follow online I wrote a post about some of my favourites - it is a great way to get good recommendations for Australian books 📚
I‘ve been meaning to read Too Much Lip since it came out, but listening to Melissa Lucashenko speak at the Miles Franklin award night really motivated me to finally pick it up. She‘s incredible.
I‘m pretty sure this whole series is 99c each on kindle if kindle is your thing and you like badass feminist fantasy you should definitely take advantage.
(Full disclaimers: haven‘t read the final book but am so excited to this weekend, the author is an acquaintance and she‘s pretty great, I stole this image from Talem Press on Instagram) #loveozya
And just before I got to bed hour 30 challenge: YA/Middle Grade. So middle grade is an American term, we don‘t really have an exact equivalent term, also ‘middle grade‘ is sort of starting to be adopted. But here in Australia we have a lot of awesome books that fit in that age range and I can‘t recommend them enough. #24in48
Woke up with back pain so I‘ve switched to audio for a bit #24in48
