This week is = MEL A ROWE week!
So I've decided to declare this week Mel A Rowe week; just cause I love her books so much. I've been known to say her writing is what mine wants to be when it grows up.
For those who don't know Mel, get onto your fav book seller and download or order up a paperback or three. She's a great aussie author of quirky, funny, totally relatable but full of feels and happiness romcom's
So in the spirit of Mel A Rowe week, here's reviews and details of my favs.
THE ART OF DUST - This is absolutely wonderful. I love this author and with each new book she writes she just gets better and better. A true aussie story that reads and feels like an aussie story. The outback setting is one of my favourite with the small town characters who all know each others business and past is fun and oh so familiar.
Full of feels and miscommunications, it gives me love, sorrow and of course the obligatory bitchy mean girl in town. I love everyone but especially the tiara less tutu princess. Plus who doesnt love a good old fashioned aussie ute?
A fun and full of love read, do yourself and favour and curl up some cold day this winter and be transported to the warmth of the outback.
AVOIDING THE PITY PARTY - It's always a good idea to avoid a pity party, even if it means dating black johny and consorting with dodgy sexy men who should be a bad idea but are oh so good.
It's a fun yet sad ride with Dee as she licks her wounds and attempts to get over Dickhead Darren, along with her Greatest girls in the galaxy, excriminals and the men of the beer shed this rag tag group of unlucky in love may find aliens, new challenges and happiness.
Love this story, Mel has done it again. A funny aussie tale that's so relatable and feels like life.
UNPLANNED PARTY - GREAT BOOK! It's so great to read an Aussie author who sets their books in Australia. Love these characters and their screwed up lives; Ryan is sexy and scared of screwing up, Emma a sweet girl who's been "trained" by life to go with the flow and do what's expected of her. Chase Jae and the Parte van and watch the sparks fly. The aussie language feels real to me and like this could totally happen to me.
Have to read more from this author!
