The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles

Beth, Dymocks Busselton

Beth, Dymocks Busselton

"Based on actual events that happened in Paris during World War II, this story details the courage and humanity shown by librarians who continued to deliver books to Jews after they were banned from the library. It is about the importance of books and the power of literature. Perfect for fans of historical fiction, especially if you like character-driven novels involving dual timelines."

 
 

The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer

Lynne, Dymocks Rouse Hill

Lynne, Dymocks Rouse Hill

"A bittersweet story about a woman who deals with a mysterious and devastating loss in her younger years by isolating herself in her house, surrounded by "treasures" from her past. When a new family moves in next door her carefully controlled life begins to unravel, motivating her to find out what really happened all those years ago. A beautiful story about love, loss and new beginnings, all with a dash of mystery thrown in."

 

A Crooked Tree by Una Mannion

Kate, Dymocks Category Manager

Kate, Dymocks Category Manager

"This is one of those books that has popped up on the must-read lists well before publication, and for good reason. A Crooked Tree looks at the unintended consequences of a questionable parental act, but it is also about the push and pull of siblings over a summer. I was fully immersed in this story and loved the pine-clad mountainous setting as well!"

 

Girl A by Abigail Dean

Kyle, Dymocks Wollongong

Kyle, Dymocks Wollongong

"In Abigail Deans' debut novel Girl A, we are granted an insight into what it means to be a survivor of both physical and psychological abuse. When Girl A's mother dies in prison, she and her siblings are forced to come to terms with what happened to them long ago. This gripping psychological thriller is a beautifully constructed slow burn with a heartbreaking storyline set firmly in the realm of realism. Perfect for any crime enthusiast who likes to explore the long-term repercussions of crime on its victims, and the challenge survivors have to not only live but to thrive."

 

The Last One at the Party by Bethany Clift

Georgia, Dymocks Garden City QLD

Georgia, Dymocks Garden City QLD

"Never has a novel set amidst a world ravaged by a global pandemic felt so eerily relevant. Bethany Clift’s debut constructs a confronting post-apocalyptic landscape, however, unlike other sci-fi plots, Last One at the Party introduces unique emotional depth. Written in diary format, the female protagonist details her harrowing journey to self-sufficiency, whilst recounting the past pitfalls that made her self-destructive and depressed. Ultimately, this roller coaster of a read assures new beginnings and hope can emerge, even when things seem most dire."

 

Mask Falling by Samantha Shannon

Tanaya, Dymocks Marketing Coordinator

"If you enjoy an intricate and distinctive world and a cast of endearing but flawed characters, then The Bone Season series is perfect for you. With each new addition in this series, Samantha Shannon manages to outdo herself; the writing is sharper, the characters are more lovable, and the plot manages to be even more twisted and compelling. The Mask Falling is no exception and it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. To me, the sign of a good book is one that makes you feel something, and whilst reading The Mask Falling, I felt joy, shock, stress, adoration, and so many other emotions all rolled into one. In the weeks since I’ve read it, I can’t stop thinking about it, and I know I will be rereading it again soon. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite series of all time, and I would highly recommend it!"

 

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna

Lizzie, Dymocks Toowoomba

Lizzie, Dymocks Toowoomba

"Namina Forna has done an amazing job at creating a spectularly rich, unique, rich and immersive world for her debut novel, The Gilded Ones. I found in following the story of the protagonist, Deka, that you will meet characters with real depth and a mystery to them that will leave you in a perpetual state of curiosity. Fantasy that also examines the morals and beliefs of the world that it's set in, The Gilded Ones is the perfect YA novel for the beginning of 2021."

 

The World Between Blinks by Ryan Graudin and Amie Kaufman

Lucy, Dymocks Busselton

Lucy, Dymocks Busselton

"The World Between Blinks sparkles with beautiful metaphors, thrilling landscapes, a little bit of love, and two brave, unforgettable protagonists. Follow Marisol and Jake as they try to find their way out of a world of lost things. Exploring the significance of memories and learning when to let go and when to hold on, I can guarantee you will want to read this over and over."
