Recommended Reading 101: Aussie YA

Posted February 25, 2017 by Bonnie in Recommended Reading 101 / 4 Comments

Taking classes and getting excited for the assigned reading was always my favorite part of school. Using that same concept and turning different genres, locations, and subjects into a course of their own, you could come up with your own assigned reading. These would be my picks for recommended reading, what would yours be?

Aussie YA 101

Book Tour Review – Fury by Shirley MarrIf you’re looking for a Aussie murder mystery…

Fury was such a thrilling debut read that made it impossible to put this down (I stayed up till 2am to finish it). Hands down one of the best YA mysteries I’ve ever read. A bit hard to get a hold of this but well worth it.

Early Review – Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

If you’re looking for something compelling and realistic…

Graffiti Moon remains one of my all-time favorites in realistic YA. Cath Crowley is a most amazing writer and this story of love, humor, and amazing characterization is completely unforgettable.

Book Review – Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

If you’re looking for an emotionally complex whirlwind…

Stolen was not a story that I anticipated to love so much that I’m still bringing it up five years later. Stockholm Syndrome is a delicate subject matter to tackle but I believe it was handled incredibly well.

  1. I have had Shirley Marr’s books on my TBR for AAAGES. She’s honestly one of the authors I first found but I have yet to read her books. I need to fix that. I really love Fury’s cover, too.

    We are twins. Graffiti Moon is also one of my all-time favorite YA contemporaries! I am so glad to see you rec it here. I think everyone should read it. The writing is so gorgeous and I loved Lucy and Ed and Shadow so so much. The author has a new book out soon, too!

    Ugh, Stoen. I was not prepared for the feels that book would bring. NOT PREPARED.

    Also: You need to read Marchetta, if you have not. Queen of Aussie YA!!
