Take a lively new look at the world of literature with STUDIO's new series For The Love of Books. Join three very different (and very opinionated) book lovers for a weekly book club where the new releases and acclaimed classics are discussed and debated.

Shot on location at The Winery, Surry Hills.

For the Love of Books hosts Cheryl Akle, Michael Campbell and Lachlan Jobbins discuss Daughters of Mars by Tom Keneally, Eleven Seasons by Paul D Carter and Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel.

Daughters of Mars -- Tom Keneally
In 1915 sisters Naomi and Sally Durance answer a call for nurses to join the war effort. They are escaping the family dairy farm in the Macleay Valley, and they carry a secret with them. Soon they are in Egypt, where they are put to work on the Red Cross hospital ship Archimedes as it patrols the Dardanelles. On Archimedes they witness Mars in all his ferocity, as he pummels soldiers in the massive, brutal metal brawl that is Gallipoli. Yet the sisters and their newfound nursing friends, with whom they will witness undreamt-of carnage and take care of unspeakably blighted men, find themselves courageous in the face of the horror.

Eleven Seasons -- Paul D Carter
MELBOURNE, 1985. Jason Dalton sits on his bed and counts his football cards, dreaming of the day he too is immortalised in the public eye. He's young and gifted, a natural player who can do anything with the ball in his hand. If only everything else in his life was as obvious to him as playing. GOLD COAST, 1991. The bottom has fallen out of Jason's life; he's now a high-school dropout, tired and wasted on the Gold Coast, with an explosive family secret still ringing in his ears. He needs to get his life back. But first he needs to find out who he is.

Bring up the Bodies -- Hilary Mantel
By 1535 Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith′s son, is far from his humble origins. Chief Minister to Henry VIII, his fortunes have risen with those of Anne Boleyn, Henry′s second wife, for whose sake Henry has broken with Rome and created his own church. But Henry′s actions have forced England into dangerous isolation, and Anne has failed to do what she promised: bear a son to secure the Tudor line. When Henry visits Wolf Hall, Cromwell watches as Henry falls in love with the silent, plain Jane Seymour. The minister sees what is at stake: not just the king′s pleasure, but the safety of the nation. As he eases a way through the sexual politics of the court, its miasma of gossip, he must negotiate a ′truth′ that will satisfy Henry and secure his own career. But neither minister nor king will emerge undamaged from the bloody theatre of Anne′s final days.
