March Books

I didn't have a lot of time for reading in March, but the books I did read were a bit of an eclectic mix...

All That I am

All that I Am by Anna Funder

Based on true events, a story of German resistance to the rise of Hitler in the 1930s

Dirt Music

Dirt Music by Tim Winton

By Western Australia's favourite author, a tale of love, tragedy and fishing...

The Island by Victoria Hislop

I re-read this one - lovely story of family redemption set on the island of Crete

The Last Letter from Your Lover

The Last Letter from your Lover by Jojo Moyes

I love Jojo Moyes - this is a bit of a detective story chasing the writer of a long lost love letter

Peter Duck
Peter Duck by Arthur Ransome

I loved the Swallows and Amazons books when I was younger - real pirates in this one!

Jasper Jones

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

Craig Silvey is another Western Australian author - set in 1960s WA this is a story of friendship, racism and young love.


  1. The Island and The last letter from your lover look like books I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing. xo

  2. What a great list, Elli! You must be a great reader. I don't read as much as I'd like to, but with the cooler nights, I think reading in bed is the perfect thing! I've just become acquainted with Jojo Moyes over the past couple of years, will have to read this one you've recommended. I couldn't get in to Dirt Music, but Winton's The Riders is one of my all-time favourites. I will have to add some of your others to my reading list. I've just picked up some more reserves from our local library, so am okay for now!

  3. That's a pretty impressive list if you only read them during March! I enjoyed Dirt Music, but loved Jasper Jones when I read them.
