Sounds enthralling doesn’t it? ...
Krista’s mini book club review of Shadowboxer is the last part of our feature on the book, which includes an interview with Tricia Sullivan by Bec Stafford and other reviews by A. V. Mather and by Joelene Pynnonen.
I like the details in the artwork; it represents ...
The Selection is often compared to the TV show The Bachelor, and when I heard that, I ran. I ran so fast and so far. I absolutely despise The Bachelor. Who in the world would go on television and compete with thirty other people for ...
What do you think of when I say 1980’s? As a child who grew up in the 80’s, the first things that come to mind are bad hair, mixed tapes, and walkmans. Rainbow Rowell makes the era come alive through the eyes of Eleanor and ...
In the Easter holidays, Clair and her friends go to Northumberland to escape parents, the icy cold of the north and mundane life. Claire’s best friend, Ella Grey, was meant to join them but her strict parents forbade it at the last minute. Still, when ...

I borrowed this one from Bolinda online borrowing through the Brisbane City Council Libraries and read along with the paperback. Dennis Olsen narrated this book and did a fabulous job of transporting you to Liesel’s side. The intervals of accordion music added a nice touch.
Second Star is a book filled with surfers, waves, wild kids, and LOTS of boys! While Second Star sounds like the perfect beach read, it isn’t the average one! Second Star is actually a retelling of Peter Pan! Before I started reading this story, I ...

So as you can see we have a slight re-design of the front page. I wanted to bring the reviews into more focus, along with our columns, in the big slider at the top.
Great news everyone! As of NOW, we’ve expanded book club to Goodreads. You’ll still get the first reviews here but discussion will take place here and there.
I’m just popping in to let you know that I’ve written a new YA story. It’s about how peer pressure can make things crazy, and it’s called The mother, the whip, and the burning tip of night smoke.
For the last few years, I’ve been part of the Redlands Redlitzer short story competitions. My role has been a judge and editor of stories written by children, young adults, and adults. In 2014, due to council budget cuts, the Redlands Library was only able to run the children’s section (and were only able to do this thanks to the help of their sponsors Bennett’s Real Estate).
Here at the Escape Club, we were really excited that one of our favourite Book Bloggers, Braiden from the Book Probe, got to meet up with one of our favourite and most reliable reviewers, Krista McKeeth (MDP: well, actually they are ALL my favourites, but Krista has been with me for a long time). They got to hang out for a bit and took this picture to send to us back home!
