A List of Books by Youtubers

I tend to try to find this list or section or any information when I go into stores and I just cannot find them or one area where they're all kept.

So far I've read "Zoellas" book. 

Anyone read any youtubers books or know of any decent ones?

RE:A List of Books by Youtubers

Hey, Cate :) One of my colleagues wrote a blog post about vloggers and before I posted it on the blog, I linked through to all the books that these vloggers have written. That could be a good place to start.

Beyond that, if you're a fan of Zoella then the books by Tanya Burr or Louise Pentland could be worth investigating. There are a couple of other vloggers, Justine Ezarik and Felicia Day, who have books that have been pretty popular as well.

Hope that helps!

The best novels you didn't read in 2014

If you did then you get lots of admiration from me! These novels have been on the New York Times bestseller lists for weeks but haven't managed to cut through in Australia -  they should have topped the charts. 

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Set during WWII the story follows a young blind girl caught in the Nazi occupation of France and a German boy who both end up caught in the siege of Saint Malo in Brittany. An absolutely delightful novel, rich in detail and with sweeping interlocking storylines that beautifully captures the universality of the human condition. Booklist called it: "a novel to live in, learn from and feel bereft over after the last page is turned". Truly a novel to savour.

We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas

Covering the life of one American family from 1950s to present day New York, this novel is an extraordinary debut with the feel of a classic. What stood out for me was the emotional punch Thomas delivers from ordinary characters in ordinary circumstances. Just the chronicling of the main character Eileen's hopes and expectations and the extraordinary pressure that one generation can place on the next rings true and I think most will relate to one element or another of this story. I felt deep sorrow whilst reading this book, but never hopelessness. Beautiful.

Discworld reading order?

So, I recently read 'Good Omens' for the first time (and thoroughly enjoyed it) and thought it about time I add some more Terry Pratchett to my Shelf.

Trouble is, Discworld I've always found a bit... intimidating. There's a lot of books in the series, and I've always just shyed away and gone for smaller more accessible series.

To cut to the point; What order is the Discworld series best read in? And, is there "Series" within the series? (I.e Robin Hobb's books)

Any other information that's useful to know when entering into this series would be great (Without spoilers, if at all possible), especially if there's any books that can be read "Alone" (As Good Omens was a collaboration, I'd like to be doubly sure I enjoy Pratchett's writing style, even though I already expect I will).

Thanks!

RE:Discworld reading order?

You can understand this book exclusive of anyone else and you don't want to pursue the past books to understand it. A great many people simply get an unequal Discworld novel, yet I want to read carefully them chronological despite the fact that there is a Discworld peruse request you can look upward on Google.

RE:My Recommendations

Hi! I guess it was test post. Here is my recommendation
  1. The Host - Stephenie Meyer
  2. A Song of Ice and Fire - George Martin
  3. The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald (this one I should read in high school but in fact I have to ask bigassignments to help me with my homework) But now I’ve finally finished the reading and I have to say It’s the best book I’ve ever read
  4.  J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and The Cursed Child (of course if you like HP-saga) :)

Dinner with Edward

Soon tobe released Dinner with Edward is a book to be enjoyed in "one sitting" to appreciate the growth of characters and relationships in this deceptively simple narrative. Drawn to Edward initially to fulfill an obligation to a friend, protagonist Isabel gradually finds herself and realises that in getting to know Edward she has faced who she is and how much she is changed. At times comic, at others poignantly sad this is a novel which questions the reader to consider what is love?
Edward writes to Isobel "Love is being, not belonging. Giving and receiving, not  possessing." Although at the stage she does not understand what he is telling her,Isobel knows that he was reminding her that there was something beautiful about exploring the meaning of love. This is an enjoyable read because it is a realistic portrayal of life and relationships.

RE:Dinner with Edward

I agree that this novel can be easily consumed in a single sitting as it is written in chapters that focus on a meal between the two characters, and what is going on in their lives at that time. The friendship shines through, and the descriptions of cooking are tantalising - although I would've liked to have seen the recipes in an appendix!

Unfortunately, I found that the main character lacked insight into her situation, so there wasn't much grist to the storyline. It was like reading a journal where the diarist only writes an entry now and again in an adhoc manner. The ending was trite (even though it may be true) and ultimately felt unsatisfying. It was a shame as this had the potential to be a great story if devevloped as a biography of Edward, rather than the ruminations of his friend Isabel.

Book review - Missing, presumed written by Susie Steiner.

I was lucky to receive a proof copy of Missing presumed. This book held my attention from start to finish. A few times I thought I had the plot worked out but I was wrong each time. It is amazing how one person can have such a big effect on so many lives. Well worth the read. Lots of twists around lots of corners.

RE:Book review - Missing, presumed written by Susie Steiner.

I too was lucky to receive a pre-release copy of Missing,Presumed and found it an absorbing read in that great style of British crime novels. The author really developed the key characters and while I thought I had the ending worked out the last few chapters had enough to ensure that wasn't the case. I'd certainly recommend this book to those who like their crime thrillers with a bit of depth.

The Widow by Fiona Barton

I was lucky to receive a pre-release copy of The Widow. I found it was one of these books that you can't put down, a great read and well written.  It gave me a very good insight into how online chat rooms work and how dangerous they are.  I found the character of the wife (the widow) convincing in how she was stuck in the relationship but was not surprised at her final action. All the characters in the book seemed so real and convincing and I so hoped that the little girl would be found one way or the other.  You will have to read the book yourself to find out!

RE:The Widow by Fiona Barton

I received my proof of The Widow, this morning in the mail. A few pages into it already and I find it quite chilling..more later after I finish reading it.

RE:The Widow by Fiona Barton

I was just finished the book and thought it was great. I look forawrd to any new books Fiona Barton writes in the future.

RE:The Widow by Fiona Barton

I don't read a lot of this genre but I quite enjoyed The Widow. I've always been intrigued by the wife who stands by her husband. The characters in Fiona Barton's book were interesting with good back stories. The plot could have gone in a few directions which kept me interested to the end. The book gave a good insight into the way the media works. Overall, a good read for the beach. Thanks to Dymocks for giving me a pre-release copy.

RE:The Widow by Fiona Barton

Like Mena, I found this book, The Widow by Fiona Barton, a very compelling read and hard to put down.
Despite each chapter being from a different time line and from the perspective of a different character, the story was well written and easy to follow.
I was also lucky to receive a pre-release copy of this book, doubly lucky as the first copy went missing in the mail and I was very kindly sent a second copy, Thank you!
