Megan | 103 comments Okay, this sounds rather great and would be my first annual challenge (as I joined in the middle of February this year, so I wasn't brave enough to do it then!) A lot of these books are on my TBR, and the books of F, I, Q, R, S were all Christmas presents!

For my own peace of mind, and I have learned there are no such things as stupid questions - dropping 'The' from the title is okay to meet the criteria? And I can use these choices for monthly and seasonal challenges as well as long as they meet those particular criteria? Fingers crossed that my choices are okay - it really got me looking at expanding my Aussie authors. Some picks may have to be changed based on availability :)
