Aussie Author Challenge

2011 Aussie Author Challenge – Complete

I completed the 2011 Aussie Author Challenge [with about 5 days to spare!] at the True Blue Level. The True Blue reader was supposed to read 12 books by at least 9 different Aussie authors. And here’s my list for the year:

  1. The Messenger by Markus Zusak
  2. Cloudstreet by Tim Winton
  3. Wanting by Richard Flanagan
  4. A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz 
  5. Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James  
  6. Rhubarb by Craig Silvey  
  7. Faces in the Clouds by Matt Nable  
  8. A Fortunate Life by A. B. Facey  
  9. The Tattooed Man by Alex Palmer  
  10. The Boat by Nam Le  
  11. The World Beneath by Cate Kennedy 
  12. Truth by Peter Temple

So there it is! 12 books by 12 different authors. I think I am going to take up their 2012 challenge too as it has been great reading authors I haven’t read before. Of course, I did have my share of disappointments but I think I also found authors I would love to read more of. Looking forward to doing more of it in 2012.

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    Thanks Nids! I’m pretty sure there is a South Asian challenge going around somewhere. The reason I didn’t take that up is because it’s hard to get books here even online apart from the famous Indian authors…
