Every November for the past five years, Brona’s Books has hosted an Australian reading challenge. This is my fourth year of joining in and it’s something I really look forward to. Brona has oodles of Aussie book suggestions if you need some ideas. I also have a page with links to various Aussie books, especially classics, that we’ve used with our children over the years – see here.
Fiction, non-fiction, essays, children\’s picture books, Australian classics – take your pick, write your thoughts or a review and link it here.
This year I’m reading:
* My Love Must Wait: The Story of Matthew Flinders by Ernestine Hill. I actually read this a bit earlier but I’m posting it here as it is such a great read and a forgotten Aussie classic, originally published in 1941, that deserves to be read by a new generation of readers.
* A Murder Unmentioned by Sulari Gentill – this is the sixth book in the Rowland Sinclair crime series set in the 1930’s.
* Come Danger, Come Darkness by Ruth Park
