  1. Before I Go by Colleen Oakley

  2. This year I'm reading Every Word in preparation for the finale in Ellie Marney's Every series. Awesome Aussie YA.

    Thanks for the incredible giveaway <3

  3. The Turning Tide by C.M. Lance

  4. The Vegetarian by Han Kang and thanks for the opportunity

  5. Eden by Candice Fox
    Yay, female antihero ;)

  6. I plan to reread Come in Spinner, a great Australian modern classic set during the second world war.

  7. I'm loving your responses, remember you need to enter your selections into the form above to qualify for the giveaway.

    Some of the books you've mentioned I haven't come across before, so I'm off to check them out :-)

    Love when that happens, and good luck everyone!

  8. I put it in the form, but pasting my comment here too:

    I'll be reading: No Place Like Home (Barbara O'Neal), Small Victories (Ann Lammott), and - an Australia Day tradition - the part of A Town Like Alice (Nevile Shute) set in WW2. Though if I finish NPLH tomorrow, there'll be We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves (Karen Fowler) in there too. Unless, of course, something from my TBR pile ambushes me first! I am a polybibliovore!

  9. I did fill in a form, so not sure if I'm supposed to post here as well. Currently it's a toss up between The House at the Bottom of the Hill by Jennie Jones, Secrets of Whitewater Creek by Sarah Barrie or Avery by Charlotte McConaghy - will see how the mood takes me after finishing the brilliant one I'm reading now by Shannon Curtis, Runaway Lies. Great giveaway Tracey. Thank you.

  10. Wow, that's quite a stack Selwyn, and some great choices there Marcia.

    Adding your entry comment here is optional, the winner will be chosen from the entrants who submit theirs via the embedded Google Form, hope that clears things up :-)

  11. Thanks for the fab giveaway and Happy Australia Day :)

    I'm reading The Maxwell Sisters by Loretta Hill and I'll be listening to The Girl on the Train

  12. Reading: The Petticoat Men by Barbara Ewing.

  13. I am currently reading Theodore Thomson Flynn, Not Just Errol's Father by Tony and Vicki Harrison.

    Agreed, it's a bit of an unusual read but I am finding it fascinating. Why am I reading it ?

    Easy. When I was very young I used to really enjoy pirate movies and of course the only good pirate movies in those days starred an Australian actor by the name of Errol Flynn. Once I watched Robin Hood I was a fan for life , and have since read a lot of biographies- some fun, mostly unpleasant - about the actor.

    At the library earlier in the week in search of new Australian Authors for another Challenge I stumbled across this book, written by an academic whose only previous writings were Fisheries related.

    It's been a great find, not only about the Flynn family, but about Sydney and Tasmania in the 1920s onwards, about our mammals and sea life ( Flynn Snr was a marine biologist and Mammal expert) and is a genuinely interesting read

  14. Hope you enjoy The Girl on the Train Teddyree, I loved it. Thanks for your entry Cobwebcottage, and May, that's a serious interest in Errol Flynn you have there. That's the joy of reading and books though, there's so much to explore! Good luck to you all.

  15. I'm reading one my favourite rural romance authors Karly Lane's latest, Gemma's Bluff

  16. Not sure if my comment appeared or not. I'm currently reading JD Robb's latest which is out in a week or two!


  17. Hope you're enjoying your rural romance today Amanda, and Deborah your response has come through to me via Google Forms. Happy Australia Day to you too Dale and good luck ladies!

  18. Entries for this giveaway are now closed. Thanks for supporting my giveaway and good luck to everyone who entered :-)
