Heart-wrenching is a go-to word to use when describing this author‘s work. I am very hopeful that title means this narrator (a young man for a change) gets a better life than what he‘s coping with currently. It‘s the only way I can keep going. #currentlyreading #preview #loveozya 🇦🇺 #septrso2019 #contemporary #tense #domesticabuse #friendship #digital

My ‘grown up‘ book club is in 6 hours. How much can I read? Obviously the most popular 🇦🇺 book in the past 2 years. Suppose I should read it. #currentlyreading #bookclub #notya Also the Matildas 🦘 just lost to Norway 🇳🇴 in the football World Cup so I am devastated. 💔💔

The Evil Queen | Gena Showalter

Not sure why I left the blockbuster to be the last of my #augustrso2019 #preview reads. Might it be that I am a little bit over retelling fairy tales to redeem the ‘baddies‘? Weeeeellll, possibly. (Read yes). #currentlyreading #retelling #ginashowalter #openmind #letsgetthisdone

Playing with Collage | Jeannie Baker Jeannie
post image
Pickpick

I have been absent here because I went to Canberra for three days to attend a children‘s literature conference and it was amazing. I feel reinvigorated. I met up with my people and loved being surrounded by the who‘s who of Australia‘s children and young adult authors and Illustrators. Unfortunately I am not a great fan girl and don‘t take many photos. But here is Jeannie Baker in red, talking about her new book, Playing with Collage. (Con‘t ...)

Missusb Erin Gough, author of Amelia Westlake is in blue, and the Aboriginal man played the didgeridoo as part of the Welcome to Country. He gave me goosebumps. #celebratereading 3w
CarolynM Fabulous! Jeannie Baker's books are beautiful and I loved Amelia Westlake. 🙂 3w

Lots of rereads currently happening, as I make up questions for these books for our state wide based readers cup competition. Honest truth? I have never read Gleitzman‘s ‘Loyal Creatures‘. But I have read the other four. Two books down, don‘t know how many more I can achieve. #giveitmybestshot #onedayleft #takesalotoftime

Back to school today. Gah! Here‘s a library book I brought to read before it gets into the collection. Number two. #currentlyreading #alreadyreleased #middlefiction #fantasy #loveozya #amiekaufman I will be reading fewer books (think I read 13 over the hols), so fewer posts. Thanks for hanging with me. #term2 #woo

One of my very good friends has written a book! It‘s all been very exciting. Tonight Megan and I are in conversation at one of our local bookshops. I am a bit nervous, but also aware of how natural and passionate a speaker she is. So I just have to throw questions at her. We‘ve got this! Her blog is amazing https://childrensbooksdaily.com #conversationswithauthors #megandaley #childrensbooksdaily

March is coming to an end here in 🇦🇺. So here‘s the 📚 I read this month. My birthday month. The first month of autumn. The month I really start to begin it‘s the next year. Fav book? Gah! A toss up between Serious Moonlight and Gravity is the thing. #readingstats #marchreading interview means I am going to be in conversation with Megan Daley about her book called ‘Raising Readers‘. She‘s a good friend of mine, so it should be fun.
