Aussie Author Challenge 2018

Years back I was on a kick reading just about anything I could about Australia.  I read travel guides, novels set in Australia, non fiction from Aussie authors….I couldn’t get enough. This was before the internet made it’s way in our home so it was all a personal agenda, no challenges to sign up for.

Jo at Booklover Book Reviews is hosting a book challenge which is right up my alley. I will start slowly and sign up for the Wallaby level.

Read and review 3 titles written by Australian authors, of which at least 1 of those authors are female, at least 1 of those authors are male, and at least 1 of those authors are new to you; Fiction or non-fiction, any genre.

My planned books are The Dry by Jane Harper, The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton and The Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally.


As it often is with well laid plans, this list could change or I may read more books than intended. I still plan to read an occasional book from my BBC Culture Books Project (see tab at the top) but that will be an ongoing project, something I will work on here and there.

If the Aussie Author Challenge is something you think you would enjoy it’s certainly not too late to sign up.  Check out the signup HERE.

    • Years back I read the series called The Australians by William Stuart Long. It’s 12 books total. I have also enjoyed Kate Morton, Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds and Jill Kerr Conway (non fiction). Looking forward to finding new authors and of course, I love reading about Australia.


  1. There’s a nonfiction author that I really enjoy and the one book of his that I wasn’t absolutely in love with was about Australia so I’ve been really hesitant to read books set in Australia ever since. Isn’t that weird! I have The Dry and pretty much anything by Kate Morton on my TBR. Thanks for reminding me to give Australia another try!
