Aussie Author Challenge: Done and Dusted!

I’m quite happy with myself at the moment. I have completed the Aussie Author Challenge, hosted by Booklover Book Reviews, which is the first challenge I have participated in online (well as a blogging one hosted by an individual and not a group).

The challenge ran from the 1st of January through to the 31st of December 2010 (there’s still time to join in if you want to) and the challenge levels are the following;

  1. TOURIST – Read and review 3 books by 3 different Australian authors
  2. FAIR DINKUM – Read and review 8 books by Australian authors (a minimum of 5 different Australian authors)

Because I’m hopeless with keeping up with challenges these days or a reading plan as I’m a reader by feel, I decided to take part in the Tourist challenge because I figured 3 books were reasonable.

They are;

  1. Slights by Kaaron Warren
  2. Tomorrow, When The War Began by John Marsden
  3. Chasers by James Phelan

All of which are excellent books and I am considering doing it again because there are a lot of Aussie Authors out there who should be read and quite a few I would love to read still. I’m not sure yet if I will as I have so many reading challenges as it is, but I know the challenge is being hosted again next year.
