Aussie YA Reading Challenge 2011

I'm doing it!  I am officially signing up for the 2011 Aussie YA Reading Challenge.  Why?  Well, ever since I read Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar and have heard wonderful things about various AU books from some awesome Aussie bloggers, I have to throw my hat in.  I'm getting an e-reader soon, so the six book goal set for non-Aussie readers is more than doable.  I'm so excited to get started after the New Year, and I encourage you to join me!  BTW, if you have a Nook, I am more than happy to swap books with you to make this easier :)  If you are interested in learning more, please visit Nic's blog, Irresistible Reads for more information.

In no particular order, here's what I am thinking of reading to meet my 2011 goal:

Saltwater Vampire by Kirsty Eagar

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta

Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

The Book of Lies by Mary Horlock
