Aussie Author Challenge 2015

aussie author challenge As part of the reorganisation of my writing life, I’ve decided to do a Reading Challenge.

It sounds like fun to read and review along with other avid readers and I’m looking forward to discovering new titles.

I’m going to start with the Aussie Author Challenge because I like to read Aussie authors anyway (who doesn’t?) and this is one thing I can do to show my support. The challenge is run by Joanna at Book Lover Book Reviews where anyone interested can find all the details.

There’s a choice of reading levels but I’m feeling committed and enthusiastic so I’m going for gold. That’s Kangaroo level. 12 Authors, 4 female, 4 male and 4 new to me. At least 6 fiction and at least 2 nonfiction. Plus 2 published 2014-2015.

I’m a little late to the challenge that runs from 1 January to 31 December 2015 but the way I read, there’s plenty of time left. I’ve already got one box ticked with Fairy Tales for Wilde Girls by Alyse Near which I read and reviewed in January so I’ll be reproducing that review on the blog shortly.

I’ve almost finished The Anchoress which is a debut historical novel by Robyn Cadwallader. She’s Australian and I am loving the book so I’ll that will be going into my list too.

There’s a non-fiction book on my desk that I’ve been meaning to read for a while. The Tall Man by Chloe Hooper, which won a swag of awards in 2009, has been on my  TBR list since then!

A few other Reading List have caught my eye but this one is the best fit to begin with.
