AWW2016 review: Assassin by Tara Moss



Read from May 08 to 12, 2016

Synopsis: Former model turned forensic psychologist and PI Mak Vanderwall is missing, presumed dead in Paris. By hiring a hit man to kill her, the powerful and corrupt Cavanagh family aimed to silence her for good. But after narrowly escaping death, Mak has taken over her would-be killer’s world. She is very much alive. And transformed …

Back in Sydney Mak’s former flame, criminal profiler Andy Flynn is on the trail of a vicious rapist and murderer with possible ties to the infamous ‘Stiletto Killer’. He may have struck before and will certainly do so again. And while Andy struggles to cope in a world without Mak, little does he realise she is on her way back. And this time she’s ready to make her own justice. Continue reading

AWW2015 sign up post


It’s that time of the year again, when I pledge to read and review at least 10 Autralian Women Writer’s books.

This year I’m planning to read some of the more well known authors as I’m incorporating a number of them into another reading challenge.

You’ll see the likes of Tara Moss, Keri Arthur, and Kylie Chan. They will however be rubbing shoulders with some of my favourite Indie AWW authors too, like Tahlia Newland, Alison Stuart, and Georgina Anne Taylor.

If you haven’t signed up yet, you can by visiting the AWW website.



My most read authors 26 – 13

Goodreads has a fantastic little statistical section that shows you a number of cool stats about your reading, ranging from how many books you’ve read this year, or ever. Also, how many pages you’ve read by year, and the year of publication of the books you have read just to name a few.  One of the really awesomely cool stats that I found shows you the most amount of books you’ve read by any one author. Here’s a few from my list.

Australian Women Writers Challenge 2013

Thanks to Miss Molly for the gentle nudge of encouragement to officially sign up for the AWW challenge for 2013. She’d posted her introduction post about the challenge here on WordPress and upon seeing it I figured I could do that too, since I’d probably already be reading a few.

awwbadge_2013I signed up for the Franklin round (which equates to reading 10 books and reviewing at least 6 of them). If you’re keen to give this challenge a go, at any level, click on the AWW badge in this post or in the bar to the right of my blog.

It will take you to the sign up page for the challenge and you can get cracking.

I plan on reading a number of books by authors I happen to interact with on Goodreads. You may have seen my review on Wolf Pear by Dianne Gray I plan to read at least another one of her books in this challenge.

I’m currently reading Behind the Mask by Juliet M Sampson who also happens to be an Aussie author. BehindTheMask

I have a couple of shorter books by Georgina Anne Taylor who hails from Tassie that will also be gracing my ‘currently reading’ shelf this year.

Alison Stuart, who’s book I recently reviewed (Gather the bones), has a few more I will be devouring in 2013 too.

There is also Tara Moss, who has a number of fantastic crime/suspense type books available plus a new one that I’m dying to read!

If you’re keen to give this challenge a try, or you can follow along with my progress on the AWW website (click on the AWW image), find them on Twitter (#aww2013 or @auswomenwriters) or on Goodreads.
