What's new for 2015!

One of our wonderful Children's and Youth Librarians, Rita, recently attended a talk about what's coming out in 2015. Here are her recommendations...

·         Patrick Ness – The rest of us just live here – New one by the author of the Chaos Walking series.
·         Michael Hyde – Footy Dreaming – Will appeal to AFL fans.  Michael has been one of our guest authors in the library.
·         Jandy Nelson – I’ll give you the sun – this was given rave reviews – by the author of The sky is everywhere.
·         Sue Lawson – Freedom ride – set in 1965, covering Australia’s own freedom ride and racial tensions in this period – sounded a great read.
·         Carole Wilkinson – Atmospheric – non-fiction dealing with climate change also sounded good.
·         Leah Thomas - Because you’ll never meet me – Letters between 2 boys with life threatening diseases.
·         Maureen McCarthy – Stay with me – Byron bay setting inspired by her paternal grandmother – this author always writes great family stories.
·         Shaun Tan – Singing bones – Grimm’s fairy tales with skull illustrations – sounds weird but looked amazing.
·         Jaclyn Moriarty – A tangle of gold – the last book in her 'Colours of Madeleine' series
·         Fiona Wood – Cloudwish – another one with the same characters as Wildlife and Six impossible things - bound to be fantastic
·         Rebecca Stead – Goodbye stranger – this author always writes great books
·         Jennifer Niven - All the bright places – in the mould of Fault in our stars
·         John Larkin – The pause – a novel about suicide
·         Martine Murray – Molly and Pin and the million stars – probably for the 10+ audience

And there was much more...

Happy reading in 2015!

  1. I just read "Because you'll never meet me" because I wanted to know what diseases the boys had. One is allergic to electricity and gets seizures. One needs an electronic pacemaker. I good read.
