A tough choice, but decision made!

It was tough choice, but I’ve finally made it. I’ve chosen the first book for us to read for the TBYL Book Club.

There were so many amazing books to choose from, many of which I hope we’ll have a chance to read together over the coming year. I’ll make sure there’s a great range of different book types and genres to explore, and I’d love to hear your suggestions for future inclusions.

For this month, I’ve chosen a book that will be a pretty quick read for most of us. I’m fully aware of the fact that January can be both the best of times, and the worst of times for reading, and I didn’t want our first title to be in any way onerous.

At the same time as being a quick read, it is still one of great substance…it will give us plenty to talk about at the end of the month.

Lastly, I was really keen to choose an Australian author to start off the TBYL Book Club with, and the author of this novel is one of the best authors Australia has to offer.

So, with no further ado I’m pleased to be able to announce the first book as being…

    Great choice Mandy. I love this book (as I love pretty much all of Hartnett’s work). Will be happy to re-read since it’s novella-size. I read it years ago and it still resonates.
