So, since I suspect that sadly none of you made it to the Publishers' Roadshow that I went to the other night, consider me the informer. Here are the books I will be hunting down:
Firstly, some non fiction goodness in time for Christmas - it's all cook books and station life:
Italia by Jo Seagar
Stoked by Al Brown
Otiwhiti Station by the Duncan family
Castlepoint - the story of life on an iconic NZ sheep and cattle station by Lorain Day
I'm harder to please on the fiction front, but I came away from the Roadshow with a few book titles to keep an eye out for, one was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, touted as the next Time Traveler's Wife (and how I loved that book!). But since then I have read a review or two about it, and in this one from The Independent this line made me giggle: "reminiscent....[of a] mild but persistent attack of trapped wind". It sounds quite painful.
But I'd almost buy it for it's cute cover.
