Suddenly my blogging & reading worlds have gone crazy.I've agreed to write a contribution page on the Australian Women's Writers blog starting this month. I'm thrilled but a little daunted about trying to fit it into my current crazy schedule.And I've just signed up for another Dewey's Readathon, even though we have visitors this weekend … Continue reading It’s Monday…..what am I doing?????
I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to A Year of Marvellous Ways.I read When God Was A Rabbit four years ago and adored it from start to finish. When an ARC of Winman's much anticipated second novel turned up at work two days before my holidays - I knew it was … Continue reading A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman
It's Monday! or ngày thứ hai as they say in Vietnam.This week I hope to read, or at least browse through my travel guides for Vietnam to prepare for our upcoming holiday. Yes, excitement levels are rapidly rising - the anticipation is as delicious as a green papaya salad!If you have been to Vietnam and have … Continue reading It’s Monday
Another It's Monday; another week begins.The weather has now taken a definite turn towards the cooler side of things on the east coast of Australia.It's nice not to be so hot & sweaty all the time, but I do not like the long, dark, cold winters (& Sydney doesn't even get that cold!!)I dislike wearing … Continue reading It’s Monday

It's Monday! has been in repeat mode for the past few week as I've slowly, sadly read Vera Brittain's memoir of her WW1 experiences in The Testament of Youth.But this week will see it draw to a close. It has been such an emotional read and so consuming that I'm struggling to see what book … Continue reading It’s Monday
It's Monday, but I have nothing new to add to this blogging week.Life is still crazy, busy.And I'm still reading Testament of Youth & The Brain's Way of Healing.ToY is extraordinary - moving & desperate, beautifully written, but it's a slow, thoughtful read and I usually only manage to read a couple of chapters in … Continue reading Back to Blackbrick by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald

Happy Monday!Before I see the movie, I need to read the book....which is a problem when the book is a huge chunkster! But never let it be said that I shied away from a challenge! Seeing this particular movie has become even more desirable since I found out that 'you know nothing' Jon Snow (aka Kit … Continue reading It’s Monday!
It's Monday which means it's time to plan my reading week. I read The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge a number of years ago.In fact my memory of reading this book is very specific and linked to a very strong sensory experience - I read a chapter every Wednesday afternoon whilst my youngest … Continue reading It’s Monday!

It's due for an April release through Harlequin Australia.I confess to knowing nothing about about … Continue reading It’s Monday!
