Author: Hilary Mantel | Reviewer: Zofia (MorningtonLibrary)

Best known for her historical fiction, "Wolf Hall" and "Bring up the bodies", both awarded the Booker Prize, this brilliant collection of ten short stories demonstrates Hilary Mantel’s creative prowess.

Author: Damon Gameau | Reviewer: Val (Rosebud Library)

This is a read in short bursts book, no scientific stuff to wade through, oceans of bright pictures and photos, and not too many pages. It explains how we got hooked on sugar in the first place and includes a selection of recipes that will help you wean yourself off it.

Author: Virginia Nicholson | Reviewer: Val (Rosebud Library)

I was riveted by this book from the first chapter, for all sorts of reasons, especially that this is set in the UK. But whilst many books concentrate on childhoods through the decades, this is a book about teens and adults in the 1950’s.

Author: Amanda Lohrey | Reviewer: Veronica (Mornington Library)

This moving and audacious novel is a pilgrim's progress for the here and now. Suffused with yearning and a sense of the mystical, this novel is the latest offering of Australian author Amanda Lohrey.

Author: John Flanagan | Reviewer: Val (Rosebud Library)

This isn’t a whodunnit, but a who’s doing it and Jesse Parker has got to find out fast before any more bodies appear.
