Aussie Author Challenge

This challenge is a bit harder because the conditions are that you have to read and review books by Australian Authors. I have no problem with the reading, it's the reviewing where things could fall down. But we'll see how it goes. I am to be Fair Dinkum about it!

Booklover Book Reviews is hosting this challenge. It runs from the 1st January  to 31st December 2010. There are 2 levels for the challenge:
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)

There are at least 3 Australian authors on the lists for the book groups I'm apart of! So far my reading list is as follows:
The Magician's Apprentice - Trudi Canavan
Isabelle the Navigator - Luke Davies
The Lost Life - Steven Carroll
The Spare Room - Helen Garner
Oscar & Lucinda - Peter Carey
His Illegal Self - Peter Carey
Breath - Tim Winton
People of the Book - Geraldine Brooks


  1. Thanks for joining me in this challenge! Don't worry too much about the review part, just interested to know whether you enjoy the books you choose really - it's always fun to share, and that way we'll end up with an excellent list of books by Aussie Authors at the end of the challenge! Great list of books you have there...

  2. Thanks for hosting the challenge! I'm really looking forward to it. I'm glad the review part isn't so hard hehe
