Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop 2013

Australia Day Blog HopBooklover Book Reviews is delighted to be part of the inaugural Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop.

Big thank you to organiser Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out.

The promotion of titles by Australian Authors has been a passion of mine for quite some time, with my Aussie Author Challenge now in it’s fourth year (still time to sign-up!).

Over that time I have read many wonderful titles by Aussie Authors and think many deserve much greater commercial success than they have achieved to date.

To that end, today I offer giveaway entrants a choice of winning one (1) paperback copy from this selection of slightly lesser known, but nonetheless high quality titles by Aussie Authors:

The Chicken Thief by Fiona LeonardDreams of Speaking - Gail JonesDue Preparation for the Plague - planeLove in the Years of Lunacy by Mandy SayerRhubarb - Craig Silvey   The Women in Black by Madeleine St John

    My paternal grand parents arrived as immigrants to Australia. There were rules on entertaining, meal preparations, and the amazing stories about life prior to immigration.

    I would love, “The Women in Black.”

      Sam – My pleasure. I thought we’d have a similar opinion on The Women in Black, sure was a lot of fun.
      Caroline – I am first generation Australian on my father’s side, so I know exactly what you mean.
      Joe – Appreciate that feedback. There are so many gems that don’t receive the recognition they deserve – it’s our duty to do what we can.
      Melissa – Thanks, hope you found something that appeals to you amongst these six.
      Michelle – Glad I’ve been able to highlight some books that are new to you.
