AH Does Scott Westerfeld count as an Aussie if he lives there half the year? (He married an Aussie)


message 2: by Danna (new)

Danna I think I would love to read some Australian novels right now, if I could find them. I have read somewhere that Australians were the best authors, although Americans probably have got the most creative stories, so they take all the credits. I have already got The Book Thief, and I have this obsession about Tomorrow, When the War Began! So I suppose this is a good start, isn't it?
Thank you so much for this beautiful list, I am looking forward to read some of those, HJ Harper!

I would think so. He is also a Texan and a New Yorker but I think a person can be lots of things.


message 4: by Colin (new)

Colin Why is The Color Purple by Alice Walker on this list? It's not YA and it's most definitely not Australian. LMAO.
