AusReading Month 2020: Celebration

In it’s 8th year, AusReading Month is hosted by Brona’s Books. This year the posting themes are Celebration, Anticipation and Promotion.

1. Celebration is all about what you’ve read this year.

• Simply list, collage and/or discuss the Australian books you’ve read since last AusReading Month. What were your favourites? Which ones can you recommend? Did you favour a certain genre or author this year?

I’ve read 88 books by Australian authors so far in 2020, not quite 60% of my reading total. They are all listed on the Australian Reading 2020 page (top menu), so I won’t re list them all here, but please feel free to browse.

Of those, 61 form part of my goal from the Australian Women Writers Challenge, and 23 for the Aussie Author Challenge.

Choosing favourites is not something I’m ever good at, but here are several I rated highly. (in no particular order- click on the cover to learn more)

While you are here I currently have a copy of Trust by bestselling author of Scrublands and Silver, Chris Hammer, to giveaway.
You can ENTER HERE until November 8th 2020.

    I really enjoy the AusReading month & was happy to see it is on again this year. Thanks for the reminder to get my post done. 🙂

    Wow! 88 Australian books so far this year! You are a reading dynamo Shelley.

    Truganini will be one of my picks too I think.

    Honeybee is my Bookclub summer read. Mr Books has already read it & ended up really liking it, although he said he found some of the scenes tough to read.

    Thanks for joining AusReadingMonth 😊

    I have been seeing more and more Australian YA here in the US and hd the chance to read 9 books written by Australian authors and set in Australia so far.

    I’ve reviewed 119 books by Australian authors so far this year, most of them (97 I think) for the Australian Women Writers Challenge. I wish I was as well organised as you are, Shelleyrae.

    Glad I got a look at Australian authors. All new to me so making a note of some of them for the future.

    88! phew. My tally comes in at a miserable 0. Hence why I am joining the AusReading Month for the first time – I need a nudge to get me to open up some of the titles by Aussie authors that have been stuck on my shelves for a while
