Aussie Author Challenge

Just in time for Australia Day I thought I'd join this challenge showcasing Australian authors hosted by Booklover Book Reviews. I'm an Aussie and enjoy reads from some very talented Aussie authors, so thought I'd join this challenge at the Fair Dinkum level. Head on over to Booklover Book Reviews to sign up for this one.

Challenge starts 1 January 2010 and ends 31 December 2010

2 challenge levels - TOURIST and FAIR DINKUM!

TOURIST - Read and review 3 books by 3 different Australian authors

FAIR DINKUM - Read and review 8 books by Australian authors (a minimum of 5 different Australian authors)

My list so far:

1. Cold Justice by Katherine Howell
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
3. Captive of Sin by Anna Campbell
4. Tempt the Devil by Anna Campbell
5. Lirael by Garth Nix
6. Cybele's Secret by Juliet Marillier
7. Shatter by Michael Robotham

Don't panic there's a link on Booklover Book Reviews that provides a great list of Australian Authors and book titles!

To celebrate blogging friendships & my birthday two lucky readers can take their pick from a choice of 6 books in my Dec/Jan giveaway. Check this blog post for details. International entrants welcome.


  1. Its a great challenge - I am doing my own one as well but with different levels. I can't wait to read more Australian authors.

    If you are interested, every second Tuesday I do a post on great authors and tomorrow my great author is Richard Flanagan, an Australian author who has written some amazing books.

  2. Thanks Becky, I'll try and pop in to check it out!

  3. What a treat you're in for with The Book Thief! It's my favorite!

    I didn't think I read many Australian authors, but I've read two of the authors on your list. I'll have to go check out that other list you mentioned.

  4. I joined this one too. I have just read my first one for it.

  5. This is a great way to focus on great authors that may not get the press they deserve. Fantastic!

  6. Thanks for joining me in this challenge Teddyree! You've got some great books on your list there.... looking forward to sharing reviews. Happy Australia Day! --- Booklover Book Reviews

  7. This is a great challenge,especially if you've got the books sitting on your shelf.

  8. I wish I had the books Sheree! i am not in a position to buy any more books now, but I have wanted to read books by Aussies!

  9. Good luck. I should sign up for this one since it is so out of my world. Thanks.
