January 2019

How was your January? Mine was beachy.

Here are some of the things I enjoyed …

Reading

Clock Dance Anne Tyler

Gentle observations on family relationships and social dynamics. A delight.

By Sea & Stars Trent Dalton

Human stories behind the epic voyage of the First Fleet. Loved it.

The Orchid & the Wasp Caoilinn Hughes

Character driven literary fiction. Hooray for flawed and bold female protagonists.

Cedar Valley Holly Throsby

Australia-in-the-90s-nostalgia with a dose of murder mystery. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club Alison Goodman

YA paranormal regency romance. Great fun.

Watching

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix with my 13 year old.

Australian Open Tennis on the couch under the fan with chips and lemonade.
