Folks, I‘ve put some helpful lists up on the blog for #aussiesrule2019 - doddyaboutbooks.com 😊

Who is ready for the #24in48? I am! I can‘t wait to stuck into my stack!
Hey folks! I‘m part of the Aussie Emergency Contact blog tour - you can check out my post here: http://doddyaboutbooks.com/2019/01/19/blogtour-emergency-contact-by-mary-h-k-cho...
I absolutely love this book, the characters are great and Choi explores some really interesting concepts. Of course there‘s a more in depth review on the blog 😬 .
I‘ve been listening to this one and really enjoying it. Just to demonstrate how small Brisbane is - I mentioned the work colleague that I sit next to that I was reading it - she knows the author as their kids are at school together.
Hazel first suspected her mother was a murderer at the age of 9. This book follows Hazel‘s journey as a terrified daughter who managed to escape her mother‘s influence and go to the police, through the court cases and their relationship in her mother‘s old age. A real kicker of a story!
Happy New Year! I‘m about to start my second book of 2019. How are you folks spending your New Year‘s Day?

Just tagging a few of you who might be interested!

This book is a gripping, if sad read. Cuskelly dives into the events and personalities that lead up to the brutal murders of three people by their neighbour. Cuskelly‘s approach is mostly balanced, and she interviews many family members of the victims and friends of the perpetrator in order to get a measure of the people involved, and the town it happened in. I highly recommend this one!
This is the most unbelievable thing I‘ve read for a long time. What sort of heathen does this?
My 200th book for the year is not in the Litsy data base. @Litsy could you please assist?
Melanin Garden is a passionate, no holds barred collection of poems about politics, gender and social commentary.. Anisa Nandaula is a slam poetry champion and I can hear her voice coming off the pages. Highly recommend!
Congratulations to @Lauredhel for being the first person ever to finish the Aussies Rule Reading Challenge 2018!
There‘s a little prize pack on it‘s way to you - thank you for participating!
If you‘re participating in #aussiesrule2018 make sure you let me know when you finish!
I‘ve started reading this one, and rather than the 1st person POV chapters being named for the character, there is a symbol at the beginning of the chapter and at the bottom of each page to let you know who is speaking.
Are you looking at the challenges you have left to complete or the year and freaking out? I know I am! I‘ve just posted a prompt mash up for the #aussiesrule2018 challenge to help you out with some suggestions! You can find it here bit.ly/2yRlebw
Attention Aussie and particularly Brissie Littens!
I‘ve been working with the local office of Amnesty International to put together a book club! This book will be out first one, and we will be meeting on Nov 10 at @avidreader at 2 pm to have a chat about it. I have a Facebook page called Amnesty Bookclub - Qld if you would like to check it out.
I‘m pretty happy that it‘s half way through October and still cold enough to be wearing long pants! It‘s a wet and cold weekend here, and I‘m reading this and putting together some comprehension questions for one of my staff members to hopefully help her do her job properly!
Dr Anita Heiss shared this great list of Maori ad Pasifika authors - read brown !
Hi folks! I‘ve just popped up another #aussiesrule2018 post on the blog, talking about prompt 24 - Books shortlisted for the Ned Kellys, Stella‘s and Miles Franklin awards. Lots of TBR fodder for you!
This book is so great with a no holds barred intersectional feminist message. Listen to the audio if you get the chance - it‘s read by the author and she is amazing!
