TGiF: The Weekly Wrap Up

Hullo spring time! We’ve had two days over 30 here in Perth this week and ermergerd the heat is DIVINE. Distracting, too. I just want to pack up my sunnies and kindle and head for the beach.

To celebrate the sunshine, I put together six reads for spring, featuring a bunch of titles I’ve loved of late. I also reviewed Simmone Howell’s punchy, hard-boiled YA novel, Girl Defective. It’s about music and misfits and Melbourne, and if you’re a YA fan and haven’t read it yet, YOU MUST. I promise it’ll blow your hair back. I also took a look at Julia Leaberlin’s page-flippin’ thriller, Black-Eyed Susans. I’ll be honest, I found this one a little ‘meh’. The mix of hard-core forensic science and fairy tale whimsy didn’t quite work for me, but it was still a decent, suspenseful read. Thriller fans, don’t be shy.

Finally, I caught up with fellow Aussie reviewer, Jodie Llewellyn, to chat about her review process and pick her brain for book recommendations.

It’s a looooong weekend here on the West Coast, so I’m going to set up my TBR pile beside my deck chair and enjoy the sunshine until Tuesday, when I shall return with more reviews and recommendations. Until then, happy reading!
