Getting a little out of hand

As well as being a rare opportunity to hear from many and varied authors, the Melbourne Writers Festival was a brilliant way to find new books to put on my reading list.

As out of hand as my list might be, I’m really pleased to have found a wide range of new books to read and revisit, including…

The Arrival,  Shaun Tan
Thought Crimes, Tim Richards
Sarah Thornhill, Kate Grenville
Pedder Dreaming, Natasha Cica
Island Magazine
Making Girls and Boys: Inside the Science of Sex, Jane McCredie
Bird, Sophie Cunningham
The Life, Malcom Knox
Midnight in Peking, Paul French
The Shelly Beach Writers’ Group, June Loves
There Should be More Dancing, Rosalie Ham
The Rehearsal, Eleanor Catton
And What do you Do, Mr Gable?, Richard Flanagan
You’ll be Sorry When I’m Dead, Marieke Hardy
Violin Lessons, Arnold Zable
How I Became a Famous Novelist, Steve Hely

Phew…that’s a big pile of books and I can’t wait! If you’re interested, you can find my whole ‘Up Next’ reading list here.

Anything strike your interest? Did you pick up any good reads at the festival?
