• Foodie Fiction Treat

    Ms Bodel's recommendation for holiday reads is a real treat! If you are a foodie, then you are going to love The Beekeeper's Secret by Josephine Moon, a local author and the first Australian novelist to make a commercial career out of writing 'foodie fiction'. Josephine writes novels around food and thinks of her books as nourishment for the soul. Set on the Sunshine Coast, this is a novel about family and the secrets, grief, and happiness that can lie within them.

  • Ms Gagen's Holiday Reads

    Ms Gagen already has her holiday reads sorted. As an avid fantasy reader, she is looking forward to reading the very popular Throne of Glass series by New York Times bestselling author Sarah J Maas. Although not a science fiction fan, she can't wait to read Illuminae, co-authored by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, and the first installment of the new trilogy The Illuminae Files. She has some serious reading to do these holidays!

  • Staff Recommendations from an Avid Reader

    An avid reader, Ms. Langusch has two great holiday reads to recommend for both grown ups and mature readers. Island Home, by her favourite author Tim Winton, is a moving memoir of the places in the Australian landscape that have breathed life into his novels, and Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks, the story of a young woman in 17th century England who bravely confronts the spread of both the plague and superstition throughout her village, is historical fiction at its best.
