A gorgeous contemporary novel set in Tasmania, To the Sea was the perfect holiday read for me. Told in multiple points of view over the days between Christmas and New Year's Eve, it conveys a beautiful story spanning generations.

We meet the Kennett family on the day they discover that Zoe -- beautiful, daring, and fearless Zoe -- is missing, most likely drowned within sight of their ancestral coastal home. Though we meet them first without him, it's detective Inspector Anthony Vincent who brings us closer to this grieving family. Tony stood apart for me because he's so different from...

Reviews 1 ★★★★

I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

I was attracted to it because I ALSO HAVE A BLOG, and I thought there’d be all these amazing moments of connection with Penny. However, Girl Online has a very slow and shaky beginning, and although it does improve eventually, it’s not really the kind of book that I enjoy.

Hold on Tight revitalised my love of this group of friends from this tight-knit coastal town, and it’s been amazing to get to know Dewayne better after so many books of him teasing us with his story.

This is Krit’s story!! I think, aside from Dewayne, I’ve been looking forward to Krit’s story the most. Krit’s a rock star – the lead singer of a band with the tattoos and hoards of women after him to go with that title. Blythe was taken in by a pastor…
