And for readers who want to not only expand their Australian authored repertoire but to also foster and nurture writers across the country, take your pick from this fabulous list!

  • The Great Escape from Woodlands Nursing Home - Joanna Nell

    An enjoyable and uplifting romp that follows 89-year-old retired nature writer Hattie Bloom as she finds her feet in a nursing home, Joanne Nell’s third book is an enchanting and charming read. Utterly delightful and often hilarious, it’s the ultimate summer read.

  • The Silk House - Kayte Nunn

    A contemporary take on gothic fiction, Kayte Nunn’s The Silk House is evocative, haunting and wonderfully atmospheric.

  • Song of the Crocodile - Nardi Simpson

    Yuwaalaraay songwriter, storyteller and performer Nardi Simpson has proven her prowess as an impressive wordsmith with a mastery of both the spoken and written language in her debut novel, Song of the Crocodile.
