Spotlight on QBD Browns Plains 2016

Let our Browns Plains team take you on a journey through the books they love…

six-of-crowsSix of Crows by Leigh Bardugo:
Set in the same world as the Grisha trilogy, Six of Crows follow six misfit criminals and their attempt to pull off an impossible heist. I wasn’t expecting to love this one as much as I did. The characters, plot and world-building were all done exceptionally well and I can’t wait to read the sequel coming out later this year. Highly recommend.- Tamara

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard:
Romance, fantasy, betrayal, action; Red Queen has it all. When I first started reading it I thought I had predicted it all until the first plot twist. It was a captivating story leaving me needing to read the sequel – Glass Sword. Although some of the ideas are seen in other books the plot overcame making it an interesting read. Would read again. – Steph

theroadThe Road by Cormac McCarthy:
This book does not read as a fairytale so beware…
It is gripping, terrifying, heart wrenching but excellent on so many levels it is hard to know where to begin. It brings to the forefront of my mind the thought that without hope we all have nothing. 4 out of 5 stars – Yvonne (Manager)

Omens by Kelley Armstrong:
What would you do if you found out that not only were you adopted but your biological parents were notorious serial killers? Omens takes its readers on Olivia’s journey as she comes to grips with who her biological parents are and who she really is. A story tied in with mystery, folklore and some deviance, this book will continually surprise you and leave you begging for more. – Paige

9780007271221Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell:
A great novel based on the real battle of Azincourt between the English and the French. This was a momentous and pivotal event between the two nations and Cornwell does an amazing job at portraying the events through the eyes of one soldier giving a far more personal and intimate view of the battle and the repercussions of the war. I love the style of Cornwell’s writing, he is a master of historical fiction and in Azincourt he really captures the feel and atmosphere of the time as well as providing just enough fiction to provide a more personal touch and entice the read onwards. For those new to historical fiction this provides a riveting yet easy read and would be a great introduction at a bargain price, and for Cornwell fans this is a must read as a part of his collection. – Axel

Firstlife by Gena Showalter:
Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal and the real life begins after death. That’s what everyone in their world believes, signing their lives away an afterlife realm of their choosing, but Tenley is undecided and wants to live. Firstlife is dark and unique from the opening line it will have you enthralled from start to finish. – Taylah

by Aprilynne Pike:

Enter into the magical world of fifteen- year old Laurel. She is a girl, who once had a completely normal life living in Orick, California until one morning she finds she has grown a set of wings. Aprilynne Pike takes you on a journey where you slowly uncover Laurel’s her true identity with the help of her long- lost friend Tamani. Wings is action-packed, creative and exciting. I absolutely loved this book. – Rebekah

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry:
When you’re expected to live up to the memory of the perfect sister that you never met and your parents never forgot, what would you do to cope? In Rachel’s case, she turns to drag racing to escape the stress of needing to be everything she’s not – and it’s on the track that she meets the love of her life, her best friend, and most importantly, her real self. – Emily (2IC)
