Happy Australia Day! (contest?)

Monday, January 26, 2009



Long time, no post, eh? I’m so sorry about that. You’d think that I’d have nothing but spare time in the summer, but I’ve been busy. I’m working on some reviews now. So you’ll be hearing more from me soon.

Anyway, I’m here to wish everyone, in and out of Australia a Happy Australia Day! Adele, from the awesome Persnickety Snark has a wonderful post, with links to Aussie authors and YA blogs, so I thought that I’d do something similar. You should defiantly check out hers though, it’s great.

To celebrate Australia Day I think that we should all have a look at some fantastic YA authors from Aus, like:

*Melina Marchetta (Review --Finnikin, review --Saving Francesca, interview).
*Julia Lawrinson (Review -- The Push)
*J.C Burke (Expect a review for The Story of Tom Brennan soon).
*Scot Gardner.
*Debrah Lisson.
*Simmone Howell (Review)
*Maureen McCarthy (reading Somebody’s Crying, review soon)
*Kate McCaffrey (Review)
Keep an eye out for these authors around the traps, there are some really great novels out by them, read the reviews. I believe that I gave them all a very good wrap.
Now, to celebrate I have one copy of The Push by Julia Lawrinson to give to the 15th person to post. Yes it's international, all the contests here are, no deadline, just the 15th person. Good luck and once again, happy Australia Day!
EDIT: It's taking longer than I thought to get to 26 posts, so how about the 15th person to post? Also, you can post more than once but not twice in row.

Bugger, I'm the first! Thanks for the shout out, I appreciate it greatly. I want to check that book out as you are the second recommendation for it that I have had in the last ten minutes. It's a sign!

What about Justine Larbalestier, John Marsden, and Margaret Mahy? They're some of my favorite Australian writers.

I will check them out, thanks

I think Australia looks like the head of a Great Dane...no one ever agrees.

I've never read anything from any of those authors, which makes me feel bad. Maybe I will.

I havent had the chance to read any of these authors yet. But I have marked them now to be on the lookout. I am always looking for new authors to read.

Thanks!

This is so sad.. I don't want to be post number 14. Post number 14 just loses... there is nothing good about post 14.

Someone has to do it. I will be that selfless someone...

Laina said...

Oh, hot darn!! I'm 15!!!!!! Well, that was good timing. And thanks LisaMay :D

Just Listen said...

Congratulations Laina! I've emailed you.

Thank-you to everyone else who entered!
