It's that time of the year where posting becomes erratic and reading consumes every spare moment. Sometimes life is hard ;)

Started this over the weekend - new crime fiction after a long break from Stella Duffy.

I've been dipping into this collection now for a while, working my way through an amazing range of short stories, all set in Australia, written by local authors harking back to the style of Arthur Conan Doyle. As is always the way there's something for everyone in these.

I started this the other night and was enthralled from the start. For our first 2018 f2f bookclub gathering.

Promised myself this would be my Boxing Day Test reading this year - which turned out to be the perfect choice, what with that awful wicket.

Another from the over Christmas / New Year pile - this time a republished historical novel with heaps of interesting background to it.

Took a little break over Christmas / New Year. Did some reading (not enough). Did some work around the farm (too much). Melted in the heat (a lot). Drank some ridiculously lovely wine (never enough). Ate chocolate (mind your own business about how much). Read a Stuart MacBride novel that featured Roberta Steel which made me happy.

I've jumped this up the queue because I needed a bit of a kickstart to get reading seriously again. It's working.

It's been busy in these parts but I have been getting a bit of reading done. Particularly pleased it was this one, straight from the very hard to put down camp.

The usual suspects took a back seat as first-time crime writers Fiona Sussman, Finn Bell, and Michael Bennett swept the spoils at the 2017 Ngaio Marsh Awards in Christchurch on Saturday night.

One from the more recent piles because it intrigued, and now it's really compelling.

I've not been getting much reading done for the last couple of weeks as I'm solo farming at the moment. Hopefully that will sort itself out in the next couple of days when my partner returns from an overseas work trip, and I'm taking to a relaxing chair for a few days :)

There is no way in this world that a Rowland Sinclair book is going to lurk long on the reading piles around here - started this one last night. Want a Chrysler Airflow already.
