The Midnight Watch - David Dyer - a book published in 2016. A pacy, well written story of the Titanic written from the alternate viewpoints of an investigative journalist and the crew of the Californian, the ship that saw the Titanic's distress signals but did nothing. Loved it. 5 stars.

Friday Brown - Vikki Wakefield - met the author. A wonderfully powerful YA novel. Great characters & very good writing. Gripping and gritty. Good for HSC: Discovery; Representing People and Places; Transitions.

Islands in the Stream - Ernest Hemingway - set on an island. Although a little patchy in places, a good read with some very sensitive writing. I enjoyed the second half of the third part of the novel the most. 4 stars.
