Aussie YA Reading Challenge 2011

I love reading YAs – however I haven’t read many Aussie YA.

I’m joining this challenge so that I’ll be more familiar not only with Aussie authors (as I’m already doing a separate challenge for that) but with this particular genre.

As I am Australian (I immigrated here when I was 15 so there are a few YA classics I haven’t got to), my challenge would be to read 12 books.

The first book on my list, believe it or not (that I still haven’t read this yet), is to be:

1. Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta

2. Playing Beatie Bow by Ruth Park

3. On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

4. In Hollow Lands by Sophie Masson

5. The Good Samaritan by Julia Haisley

6. A Cage of Butterflies by Brian Caswell

7. Wolfborn by Sue Bursztynski

8. Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan

9. Thursdays Child by Sonya Hartnett

10. The Named by Marianne Curley

11. Cybele’s Secret (Wildwood #2) by Juliet Marillier

12. 48 Shades of Brown by Nick Earls
