ARIADNE by Jennifer Saint

Emily, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

Emily, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

"Ariadne is a modern retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur from the point of view of the often omitted characters of Ariadne and her sister Phaedra. Through their eyes we get a behind the scenes look at Theseus and other heroes and villains of Greek mythology. Ariadne will have the reader questioning the nature of heroes and if they are worthy of the title."

 

LAST NIGHT by Mhairi McFarlane

"No one tells stories of relationships, love and heartache like Mhairi McFarlane, and I eagerly await her new release each year. Last Night has all the Mhairi charm we have grown to expect, with some gut-punching moments of sadness and tender romantic moments to fill you with all the feels. I loved this book, it’s like having a coffee with a bestie where you laugh and cry for a few hours, and feel totally restored again at the end!"

Tune into Mhairi McFarlane's live author event on Chapter One.

 

YOU NEED TO KNOW by Nicola Moriarty

Julie, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

Julie, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

"Told through the eyes of four family members, this is an adventure and a roller coaster ride, well written and full of twists and turns. This book is about a family who needs desperately to heal and whilst everyone thinks they are doing just that, they are only surviving and going through the motions, rather than living their best lives. Do they have what it takes to find a way through to the other side? Just be warned that once you start reading, you'll do everything in your power to make sure you can keep reading! This is an excellent example of the depth of writers we have in this country."

 

RAFT OF STARS by Andrew J. Graff

Lynne, Dymocks Rouse Hill

Lynne, Dymocks Rouse Hill

"Two ten-year-old boys who have grown up and bonded as close friends, in part because of a missing father figure in their lives, find themselves on the run from the authorities and their parents after a desperate accident has occurred. As they start a perilous journey into a forest and down a river, their four rescuers/hunters find themselves on their own journey, in situations that force them to confront their own demons and purpose in life. This is both a coming-of-age and transformation story that is as moving as it is exhilarating. Perfect for fans of Where the Crawdads Sing."

 

THE JAM QUEENS by Josephine Moon

Heather, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

Heather, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

"Set on the luxury train, The Ghan, this is an armchair traveller’s delight, weaving from Darwin, through Alice Springs, and on to Adelaide. On the trip are four generations of Hermann women – all with secrets, all hoping to reconcile past differences. The scene is set for an enthralling tale that includes complex female relationships and a good dose of romance. Perfect escapism."

HALF LIFE by Jillian Cantor

Heather, Dymocks Albury

Heather, Dymocks Albury

"You have a choice. There is always a choice." In Half Life, Jillian Cantor explores this notion of choice by presenting two different stories based on the life of Nobel Prize-winner Marie Curie. One story is based on historical fact but also, in alternate chapters, the author presents her own fictional imagining of Marie's (Marya's) life if she had chosen to remain in Poland. The parallel structure of the two stories is highly effective and thought-provoking. I really enjoyed reading it and I loved the way Jillian Cantor created so many parallels between the two stories."

YOU LOVE ME by Caroline Kepnes

Xavier, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

Xavier, Dymocks Waurn Ponds

"Gripping and enthralling! Joe is back at it again, endeavouring to be a nice guy in order to impress his newest fixation, a librarian who’s living a Gilmore Girls-esque life. In this cat-and-mouse thriller, you'll continue to question why you relate to Joe, hoping he won’t get caught, simply because Caroline Kepnes writes him as if he believes that he is a righteous hero. This book certainly subverts expectations in a grippingly suspenseful way that will keep you guessing until the very last page."
