Who would have thought that our year would be flying past so quickly? Here are the first four books which I read through this Winter! The Slap – Christos Tsiolkas (2008) Can a grown man slap another person’s small child? Across the face? At a BBQ? What if that child is threatening another child with… Continue reading Winter Reading Challenge (Part 1)
