Cassie is eleven - turning twelve, has curly hair, and is really good at noticing things. This makes her a good writer and a good detective, which is lucky, because to tell this story she will need to be both. ⠀

The gorgeous new Toni Jordan literary blockbuster, out in Nov. We spoke to our Art Director @lamoge about designing the cover. ‘This cover evokes historical elements as well as the lushness of the era (1930s NYC). The velvet speaks to the introverted but lavish life of the mysterious and iconic author Inga Karlson. The fragments reference the parallel timelines. They tie Caddie Walker, diminutive bookseller and Karlson devotee, in 1980s Brisbane to Karlson in New York. Overall it works to tell you that this is a literary mystery, an intriguing puzzle to devour, muse over and piece together.’
And devour it we will. .

Happy release day to @sharonkernot and The Art of Taxidermy. This was the first book I’d read written in verse and I loved it! I’m just writing up my review now and will share it with you guys once it’s done.

Synopsis: Lottie collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands—Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does. .
.
And her mother? Lottie’s mother died long ago. And Lottie is searching for a way to be close to her.
.
The Art of Taxidermy is a heartbreaking verse novel exploring love and death, grief and beauty, and the ways we try to make sense of it all. .

The sun has come out, it’s Friday and it’s nearly lunchtime. What are you guys reading this weekend? My pick is HER MOTHER’S DAUGHTER, Nadia Wheatley’s loving tribute to her mother and an investigation of the bewildering processes of memory itself.

A flying visit to Sydney with @ceceadam to sign some copies of #theextremelyweirdthingthathappenedinhuggabiefalls 🦇Thanks for having us @betterreadbookshop, @kinokuniya_sydney and @dymocks_sydney!

My book 39 of 2018
Title: Dying: A Memoir
Author: Cory Taylor
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Format: Hardback 📖
A searingly honest and moving memoir. Following her terminal cancer diagnosis, Taylor writes her story from the heart in sharing what life and above all, dying has taught her. A moving tribute as it was her last ever book before she passed away in July 2016. I read in just over two days.

THE DEAD STILL CRY OUT is the incredible true story of Helen Lewis’ father - a British paratrooper and wartime photographer. Helen was kind enough to show us the diary of photographs taken by her father that inspired the book. Unforgettable.
