Books I'd love to read while trying to survive an Australian summer.

    Cress

    Cress is the third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, following Cinder and Scarlet. Incarcerated in a satellite, an expert hacker and out to save the world - Cress isn't your usual damsel in distress. Cress grew-up as a prisoner. With only net screens for company she's forced to do the bidding of the evil Queen Levana. Now that means tracking down Cinder and her handsome accomplice Emperor Kai. But little does Levana know that those she seeks, and the man she loves, are plotting her downfall...As paths cross and the price of freedom rises, happily ever after has never seemed further away for Cress, Scarlet and Cinder. This is not the fairy tale you remember. But it's one you won't forget. "Fairy tales are becoming all the rage, with the TV shows Once Upon a Time and Grimm spinning them through a modern filter...Meyer's debut novel Cinder, though, combines a classic folk tale with hints of The Terminator and Star Wars". (USA Today.com). [praise for Cinder] About the author: Marissa Meyer's first two books in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Scarlet, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list. Marissa lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and their three cats. Also Available: Cinder Scarlet Cress And don't miss: Winter.

    Kindred Spirits

    'Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.' 'Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?' 'Maybe.' If you broke Elena's heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she's expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she's not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels. Kindred Spirits is an engaging short story by Rainbow Rowell, author of the bestselling Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On, and is part of a handful of selected short reads specially produced for World Book Day.

    Mother Night

    From ratty attic to Auschwitz and back again, Mother Night is the confessions of Howard W Campbell Jr - an American, a notorious Nazi propagandist, and a US counter-spy - not a moral man. This mournful, macabre and diabolically funny tale of unsung heroism uses acrid humour to underline the horror of its themes. It is one of the blackest comedies ever.
