Top Ten Tuesday: Australian Reads

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is to share books set in another country; however, I’ve decided to mix it up a bit (when don’t I?). Instead, I’ll be sharing ten books that either take place in Australia or are written by Australian writers. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta sparked me to make this list because it satisfies both of those qualities. Needless to say, I definitely need to read more Australian books!

What are some of your favorite books that take place in Australia or are written by Australian writers? Any recommendations? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Of this list I’ve only read Illuminae and The Book Thief. Though I have read one of Melina Marchetta’s fantasy books as well. I do think when it comes to the english speaking countries, Australia is often glossed over compared to UK and USA. So it is good to share some. 🙂

  2. I really enjoyed Jane Harper’s book, The Dry.

    Another really good one i read when i was in high school is called The Dreaming. It’s set in Australia, but written by an american author, Barbara Wood.

  3. I really love Illuminae, of course! But Tomorrow, When the War Began sounds good too! I didn’t actually know some of these were Australian authors and learning books that are set in Australia are cool! I’ll have to add a few to my TBR… thanks for such a great twist on the topic Holly ❤
