Aussie Author Challenge – my progress in 2011

aussie+author+challenge+2011Can you believe it – it is June already!

High time to reflect upon my own progress in the 2011 Aussie Author Challenge.

As challenge host, I of course signed up to the TRUE BLUE challenge level rather than TOURIST.

TOURIST – Read and review 3 books by 3 different Aussie Authors
TRUE BLUE – Read and review 12 books by Australian authors (at least 9 different authors)

Books I’ve read in 2011 so far written by Australian authors:

QUEEN OF THE FLOWERS – Kerry Greenwood (my review)

DREAMS OF SPEAKING – Gail Jones (my review)

RHUBARB – Craig Silvey (my review)

THE BROKEN SHORE – Peter Temple (my review)

FALL GIRL – Toni Jordan (my review)

THE BIG ASK – Shane Maloney (my review)

And at the moment I’m listening to Kate Morton’s wonderful The Forgotten Garden.

Fall Girl - Toni Jordan The Broken Shore - Peter Temple Rhubarb Craig Silvey Big Ask - Shane Maloney

 Dreams of Speaking Gail Jones1 queen of flowers greenwood1 The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

So that’s 7 books by 7 different authors, so far…
