The wonderling by Mira Bartok

The Wonderling

by Mira Bartok

Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer.

Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared, fox-like eleven-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name - a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck - it is the only home he has ever known.

 Glory of rome by Douglas Jackson

Glory of Rome 

by Douglas Jackson

77AD. Gaius Valerius Verrens is an honoured member of Emperor Vespasian’s inner circle, but the enmity between him and Vespasian’s son Domitian means that, even in Rome, danger is never far away. Meanwhile, in the outer reaches of the Empire, in Britannia, trouble is brewing. 
The governor, Gnaeus Julius Agricola is preparing to march his legions north and Valerius is Agricola’s chief legal adviser and deputy governor. It's the opportunity he seeks to move his wife and son out of reach of Domitian’s wrath. But Britannia is where Valerius cut his military teeth and whetted his sword - and he will soon discover that the ghosts of his past are never far away and are more dangerous perhaps than Domitian.

 Forgotten by Nicole Trope

Forgotten 

by Nicole Trope

A gripping domestic noir thriller from the author of Blame

‘If you’re looking for the Australian equivalent of Jodi Picoult, look no further than Nicole Trope, who is making a name for herself as a writer of provocative family dramas with hard-hitting issues at their core.’ Hannah Richell, author of Secrets of the Tides 

In a single day, a simple mistake will have life-altering consequences for everyone involved. 

A moment of distraction, an unlocked car and a missing baby. How on earth could this happen? 

All Malia needed was a single litre of milk and now she’s surrounded by police and Zach has disappeared.

Running a love story by Dom Harvey

Running: A Love Story

by Dom Harvey

Dom Harvey is a hugely popular radio DJ on top-rating station The Edge. He's known for his funny gags, and has been described as a shock-jock.

So it might come as a surprise to find out that Dom is also seriously into running-marathon running. In fact, he loves it.

This book is a love story about running, and about marathons especially. What got Dom into marathons? How did running save his life? And why, despite being an old fart, is he now trying to run even faster than ever before?

Dom is just a regular guy who drank too much alcohol and ate too much shitty food, then fell in love with running and turned his life around (and became a bit of a running nerd along the way).
