Say hello to our team at Mt Druitt! This week they tell us all about what they’ve been reading…
Wind Dragons 01: Dragon’s Lair by Chantal Fernando:
“Never Judge a Book By Its Cover!”
I kept putting this book aside because the cover didn’t grab me BUT how silly was I! It was a great read, for romance, I could not put it down and read it in a day. I ended up buying the rest of the series the next day!
When you catch your man cheating you think a night out is just what you need. That’s what Faye does and ends up getting sweet revenge with Eric’s brother, who also turns out to be in a motorcycle gang. Faye and Dex had a one night stand but that quickly turns into a lot more than what they both bargained for…
In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick:
I have never been one for reading non fiction but this book is absolutely phenomenal. The way Nathaniel Philbrick retells this historical tale really transports you to the frightening situations that occurred on the Essex and just how the crew survived their terrible ordeal. In the Heart of the Sea truly is a must read for anyone who wants to be completely immersed in a true story. – Naomi
Ottilie Colter and The Narroway Hunt by Rhiannon Williams:
Even though this can be classed as a childrens fiction book, anyone is bound to enjoy this book of daring adventure, timeless friendships and terrifying monsters. In the middle of the night Ottilie’s brother is whisked away from her, scared and alone Ottilie packs her things to follow and find him, while stumbling onto a secret operation that fights against a hidden evil that threatens the very life she knows. Thrown into a recruitment process to train as a huntsman while keeping her true identity secret, Ottilie must master abilities that she never even thought about, as well as keeping the world her nerve, her brother and her secret safe. From swamps, caves and mossgrass; to stone castle strongholds, unforgettable friends and adventure. This book puts you in the middle of the action, and will have you on edge waiting in anticipation for the next in the Narroway Trilogy! – Kim C
Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry:
“A must read for those who love action, mystery and romance!”
Katy McGarry is a brilliant author and this book is no exception to her brilliance. The story follows the story of Emily who quickly finds herself upended from her normal life of safety and routine, into a world of the motorcycle club ‘the Reign of Terror’ run by her biological father. Spending a summer there seems like an impossible task for Emily, one filled with secrets and closed doors. That is until she meets Oz, a prospective member who is assigned to protect her from a rival gang. Oz is everything she never thought she wanted and yet can’t help but be drawn in by him. Can she survive the summer, discover secrets which may be best uncovered, and keep her heart intact? Only time will tell. This book is a wonderful read which keeps you up all night turning pages, desperate to find out how it ends! I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is a sucker for a good love story with a fantastic cast of interesting and fascinating characters. It is a book that you never want to end, and luckily for us, it doesn’t as the series continues in ‘Walk the Edge’ with a new set of main protagonists!

The daughter of the family who have been his families enemies since he was born the tension is clear.

When a gang can make the impossible possible you know they are not to be messed with. Kaz Brekker and his gang of Dregs are tasked with breaking into the Ice Court to retrieve a scientist who can alter the fate of the Grisha as they know it. This book is action packed, fill with character depth and a unique story in a unique universe. This book was so good I didn’t want it to end. Savour every page.
