For those, like me, who have a penchant for lists. There are a few lists scattered through the site: 'Books of the Decade' and 'Dystopian Literature' have their own posts. There is Reddit's list of the 'Best Sci-Fi' books under Award Winners and of course the Award Winners and New Releases posts.  I'll post the list title here, as more are added.  Please do add any lists you find interesting.

1. Granta: Britain's best young novelists
2.  50 Must Read Australian Novels
3.   8 Books You Should Read Before You See the Movie
4.   50 Must Read Australian Novels

Group Read - THE SECRET KEEPER - Kate Morton

In a bucolic English summer at the end of the 1960s, a young girl witnesses a shocking crime. Fifty years later, she sets out to find out the truth, uncovering layers of mystery and deception. Moving from London during the Blitz to the present day, this is classic Kate Morton: a compulsively-readable, entrancing mystery with a long held secret to be uncovered at its heart.
