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


message 2: by Ðɑηηɑ (new)

Ðɑηηɑ 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.


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