As usual, my reading and review publication far exceeded the goals I set for myself – Kangaroo Level (12) of the Aussie Author Challenge 2016 and the Miles Level (6) of the 2016 Australian Women Writers Challenge.
Of the 25 titles reviewed, 13 were by female authors and 15 from authors whose work I’d not previously read.

I’m sticking with the Kangaroo (12) and Miles (6) reading goals for the Aussie Author Challenge 2017 and 2017 Australian Women Writers Challenge respectively.
And while I prefer to let my reading ‘take me where I wander’ during the year rather than making a reading list up front, here are just a few of the titles by Aussie Authors I am hoping to find time to read in 2017 :
- The second novel in Emma Viskic’s Caleb Zelic series, And Fire Came Down
- Our 2016 Miles Franklin award-winning Alec Patric’s next novel, Atlantic Black
- The Hidden Hours by Sara Foster
- The next novel in Adrian McKinty’s first class Sean Duffy / The Troubles series, Police at the Station and They Don’t Look Friendly
- After hearing her speak about it so passionately at the Brisbane Writers Festival last year, Kate Forsyth’s Beauty in Thorns
- The second Stella Hardy novel, Too Easy by J M Green
- Tom and Meg Keneally’s Monsarrat Crime series
- Greg Pyer’s The Unfortunate Victim
- Stephen Greenall’s Winter Traffic
