Christmas/Hanukkah/Eid ul-Adha is just around the corner and what better festive season gift than a smart, sexy thriller set in Thailand–a great summer read! You can purchase Behind the Night Bazaar from all good bookshops or online through The Text Publishing Company.
For my part, this summer I’ll be reading Blue Mauritius by Helen Morgan, one of my longest-standing friends–we’ve agreed to avoid referring to each other as ‘one of my oldest friends’. Also on my ‘hanging-out-for-my-baby-daughter-to-learn-to-sleep- before-11pm-so-I-get-to-read-again’ list are: Case Histories by Kate Atkinson; The Broken Shore by Peter Temple; The Secret River by Kate Grenville; In My Skin: A Memoir by Kate Holden; and The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards.
These are books I haven’t read but think I’ll like. In the near future, I’ll devote a posting to books I’ve read and love(d). I also welcome feedback from readers on your favourite books.
