Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
This book is a gripping mystery that focuses on a missing teenage girl in 1970s Ohio. The narrative digs into the complexities of family dynamics, looking at the secrets which the family members keep from each other that ultimately lead to dysfunctional relationships. With an overlay of the gender and racial prejudices of the time, the cleverly constructed writing created a real page turner!
The Voice to Parliament Handbook – All the Detail You Need by Thomas Mayo and Kerry O’Brien
This is an easy to follow guide to help understand what the Voice to Parliament actually means. I like the useful anecdotes and historical analogies. A simple explanation of a complicated topic of critical importance to Australia’s future.

Much Ado About Nothing adapted by Steve Skidmore and Steve Barlow
I am reading Much Ado About Nothing. It is a modern take on Shakespeare, it is funny and it is a graphic novel. My favourite character is Beatrice because she is a strong, independent woman. I like how graphic novels show the story with pictures and words, and even if you’re tired you can still read and enjoy them. I would recommend this to anyone who likes funny stories.

Smart Ovens for Lonely People by Elizabeth Tan
I am loving these short stories by Elizabeth Tan. This is an unusual read for me, but I am loving it – beautifully written, an exquisite gem of writing, and great to read short stories when life is busy and you need to fit your reading around everything else.
