I love chatting to people about books. And I’m sure most of you love chatting about books too. So, brand new for this year, I’ve created a Video Book Club! Each month I’ll record a short video where I talk about the books I’ve been reading over the past 4 weeks. I think this will be a much more engaging way of letting you know about the fabulous and not-so fabulous books I’ve read rather than trying to summarise them into a short, written blog post.
This month I’m chatting about some historical fiction in The Tailor’s Girl by Fiona McIntosh and The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan, some historical/murder-mystery fiction in the form of one of Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher books and some contemporary Australian fiction with Past the Shallows by Favel Parrett. Some of these books I loved, some not so much. To find out more about the books, please click on the video above.
Let me know what you thought of the books if you’ve read them or, if you haven’t read them, have I enticed you to give any of them a try? And please also let me know if you like the video book club format. Happy reading!
PS – My second book, If I Should Lose You has been described as a great book for book clubs. It tackles the subject of organ donation through the eyes of a nurse who works as an organ donor coordinator, and through the eyes of a female heart transplant surgeon. Both of these women are used to dealing with the issues around organ donation in their jobs, but not so used to dealing with the same issues in their personal lives. If I Should Lose You is a story about motherhood, love, and hope. You can buy it now through Australia’s biggest online bookstore, Booktopia.
