Booklover Book Reviews Aussie Author giveaways

While trying to complete the many reading challenges that I signed up this year, I’m doing poorly at Aussie Author Reading Challenge now and needed a nudge to read more books on Aussie Authors to finish the challenge.

But I really love it. Thanks to many Aussie bloggers like BernadetteJacq and Joanne P , I am introduced to many Aussie authors that are new to me. Peter Carey, Tim Winton, Kate Grenville, Colleen McCollough to name a few that I vow to read their books very soon one of these days.

Joanne P is hosting a massive giveaways and I can’t wait to get my hands on all of them! 

Although most of these authors are new to me and I wouldn’t know where to start picking what I want, but I surely want a copy of Miles Franklin of  “My Brilliant Career”. There are two reasons for choosing this, First because a brilliant career is what I crave but currently don’t have; Second, how can I miss reading a book which is written by a woman who has a book award named after her? The Miles Franklin book award. 😉

  1. Hit looks pretty exciting. I’ve heard some interesting things about Tara Moss’ novels.

  2. I have heard of the Miles Franklin award but I didn’t realise she was an author too. Is that terrible to admit?! I want to read that now too!

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
