Check out these great hand-picked gems!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott:

This is one of my all time favourite classics. The story follows the lives of four sisters as they develop from children into young women, searching for their place in the world. I feel that this novel is one for all ages and the issues and ideas presented in the book are timeless. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a well written story. – Adriana

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory:

If you’re a history buff than this is the book for you. Philippa Gregory does a fantastic job of bringing to light the world of King Henry the 8th and his 6 wives and in this book readers meet the notorious Anne Boleyn, famous for her death on the chopping block. Readers will be unable to put this book down as you see the length that a woman and her family will go to rise to power and ultimately win the heart of a King. – Liz

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven:

All the Bright Places is a book full of melancholy beauty. The novel is a poignant love story where two teenagers worlds apart are drawn together through their struggles. Niven has created a beautiful and profound teenage love story, which is both enthralling and emotionally engaging. The target audience of this book is teenagers, however it is written in such away that it can be enjoyed by all. – Serena

Die Trying by Lee Child:

Jack Reacher is the ultimate action hero! Trouble always seems to find him even when he is taking an innocent stroll down a street. Die Trying is the second novel in the fast paced Jack Reacher series. This novel has it all for anyone who loves action and adventure; FBI, the army, kidnapping, a militant cult and of course Jack Reacher. Die Trying is a fantastic, action packed novel that will leave your heart beating until the very last page! – Chris

House of Karls by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki:

House of Karls is a fun, quirky read for anyone wanting to learn about… well just about anything. If you were wondering about why you sneeze when you looking at the sun or perhaps the authenticity of the five second rule puzzled you, if so House of Karls is the book for you. Doctor Karl writes with such a fun style that he makes learning about sleep fun. House of Karls is fun yet interesting non-fiction for anyone of all ages. – Dion
