What are some of the highlights of your blogging career?
Spending time with other members of the Aussie YA blogging community at events like the Hachette Blogger nights, Penguin Teen Australia Live and BTCYA have been fantastic! Getting the chance to meet other like-minded bookworms in person is always a great experience, and provides another opportunity to fangirl about the novels we’re excited about. Having a snippet of my review featured inside a book was also pretty exciting for me (If I Speak True by Jessica L. Brooks).
Share with us some of your favourite genres:
Obviously YA will always be special to me, and within that I’ll be open to pretty much anything from historical fiction, a sci-fi adventure, contemporary romance and everything in between. Each of those sub-genres have novels which I’ve loved, and the great thing about YA is that it holds such a diverse range of titles which is being expanded all the time with the new releases we try to keep track of!
Share with us some of your favourite books/series:
Define ‘some’? I’ll try not to ramble on too much here, but there are a ‘few’ books which are some all-time favourites of mine:
- Spark/Stray by Rachael Craw – the perfect balance between scifi/contemporary/thriller
- Flora series by Jessica L. Brooks – magical realism at its finest
- The Beast’s Garden/Bitter Greens/The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth – magnificent fairytale retellings, beautifully told
- The Rosie Black Chronicles by Lara Morgan – the series that first made YA scifi a standout to me
- Anything by Jackie French, especially her Matilda saga which I’m currently reading the latest book of (The Ghost by the Billabong)
- Thrillers by Rebecca James, contemporaries by Sarah Ayoub and Gabrielle Tozer, Justine Larbalestier’s thought-provoking reads, scifi’s co-written by Amie Kaufman..basically ALL THE AUSSIE YA.
