Aussie YA Book Challenge 2011
I am thrilled to read about Nic at Irresistible Reads and Nomes from inkcrush's Aussie YA Reading Challenge for 2011. Over the few years in particular, Australian writers have produced some amazing young adult fiction, and I'm looking forward to being able to share more of it with you in 2011.
Here are the Challenge Rules from Irresistible Reads:
Australian participants - Read at least 12 young adult books by Australian authors from 1st January, 2011 to 31st December, 2011.
International participants - Read at least 6 young adult books by Australian authors from 1st January, 2011 to 31st December, 2011.
They can be old or new titles, however no re-reads.
So far, I'm pledging to read:
♥ Good Oil - Laura Buzo
♥ Loathing Lola - William Kostakis (I've borrowed it twice from the library, but haven't read it yet!)
♥ Jarvis 24 - David Metzenthen
♥ Angel Creek - Sally Rippin
♥ Noah's Law - Randa Abdel-Fattah
Sound like fun? Join us! Or share some of your favourite Australia YA novels with me? And have you checked out Nomes Best of Aussie Ya series yet? Get on it!
