2012 - Top Books

Anybody who knows me will be aware that I'm mathematically challenged. Besides, I hate giving numbers of stars as reviews and Top 5's or 10's or whatever numbers give me heartburn, so instead, I wanted to just re-mention some of the books that made my reading 2012. I was rather pleased to have hit the 120 that I set myself as a goal on Goodreads (in fact if I was up to date with reviews) I reckon that number will end up much closer to 140, which is not a bad effort given that it was a hellishly busy year all round. But enough waffle.

Currently Reading - Paving the New Road, Sulari Gentill

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This series is set in a period of time that simply didn't happen as far as my history education was concerned. (Anglo-Saxon villages in England presumably being much more relevant... ) so I've always been grateful to Sulari, and her expert husband for the research, woven into the fictional world that Rowland Sinclair inhabits.

Having said that - I also look forward to the arrival of these books as I'm always very interested to see what sort of development the series will undergo (this being book number 4 so far).

Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

It’s 1933, and the political landscape of Europe is darkening.

Eric Campbell, the man who would be Australia’s Führer, is on a fascist tour of the Continent, meeting dictators over cocktails and seeking allegiances in a common cause.  Yet the Australian way of life is not undefended.  Old enemies have united to undermine Campbell’s ambitions.  The clandestine armies of the Establishment have once again mobilised to thwart any friendship with the Third Reich.

But when their man in Munich is killed, desperate measures are necessary.
