Prime Cut

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

If you're going to have a rough reading month - I can highly recommend that you treat yourself to this book.  Fantastic Australian voice, fun in places, serious where it needs to be clever.  Strong plot but best of all, great female and male characters.    Bigger, better, real review to come.
