My precious books all packed up to be shipped interstate 😐
Pretty sure racism was the heart of that campaign ?
This book destroyed me 😭💔
we are such an awful country
I enjoyed this. It‘s a time slip novel that explores Australian history and reconciliation. Not quite as good as Inheritance at the reckoning but still a good read.

I have a new post up on the blog as part of #ausyabloggers Man in the Water blog tour.
I recommend if you like mystery, ya, or are interesting in life in remote Australia.
Posted a review of this book on the blog: https://www.gillyreads.com/review-the-surprising-power-of-a-good-dumpling-by-wai...
Forgot to post the other day. I went to the launch of The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling, where there were dumplings, and it was great. Really enjoying reading so far and it was very interesting to hear Wai Chim talk about the choices she made writing this book.
It deals with important topics like mental illness, racism and microagressions. #loveozya
Doing some research
I read this in April and finally just now posted my enthusiastic gushing review (it‘s a great book just read it)
Today was Love Your Bookshop Day here in Aus and I went to several of my favourite bookshops to show them some love. ❤️
If you‘d like some good Australian bookstores to follow online I wrote a post about some of my favourites - it is a great way to get good recommendations for Australian books 📚
I‘ve been meaning to read Too Much Lip since it came out, but listening to Melissa Lucashenko speak at the Miles Franklin award night really motivated me to finally pick it up. She‘s incredible.
