Sunday Salon – Sydney

So here I am, in Sydney, sitting on the sofa and looking out at the water of Sydney Harbour (our view doesn’t quite extend to the million-dollar panorama of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House) and working hard at relaxing. We threw my beloved Grandpa a great 90th birthday bash yesterday and I was exhausted by  the end of it!

Since getting on a plane at Heathrow just over a week ago, I have polished off 5 books:

Jo Bannister – Flawed – good little pocket-sized adventure.

David Baldacci – Deliver Us From Evil – this was a DNF at 200 pages when it just got too violent for me. Unfortunate because it was going rather well until then.

Clive Cussler – The Silent Sea – standard Cussler fare, great setting in the Antarctic

Christine Stinson – It Takes a Village – not sure whether I should review this or not because Chris is a dear family friend, but I rather enjoyed it so I suppose I will!

Alan Bradley – A Red Herring Without Mustard – more Flavia de Luce adventures, more 1950s English wonderfulness.

I’ve also got Aimee Carter’s The Goddess Test to review, especially as I lent my Kindle to my sister and she raced through it and gave it her approval.

So there’s a spot of reviewing to be done today before I head off to a bookshop with a friend!

In the meantime, I leave you with the glorious view from the Manly Ferry back towards the Sydney CBD:
