(Not that I’ve read The Book Thief… But I’ve heard great things! *nervous laughter* and I’ve… Seen the movie?)

THE BLOGS 

The majority of the blogs that I follow are written by fellow Aussies.

Some of these include:

Paperfury

Happy Indulgence 

Nice Girls Read Books 

Tea in the Treetops

Cassie the Weird 

You should go check out ALL OF THESE PEOPLE. Please. And thank you.

THE FOOD

Okay so totally not book related but here is some of the foods that I am SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL FORE.

Vegemite.


You either love it, or you hate it. I love it. Love love love.

Tim Tams


A blessing from the gods. (Although I here you can buy these overseas now?)

And yeah. I also love all other ‘Australian’ foods like Lamingtons, Shapes, macadamias, all that, but I really felt the need to talk about Vegemite and Tim Tams.
And finally…

THE BOOKSTAGRAMMERS



I love a good BOOKSTAGRAM account. My account is @booknerdiganss 😉 #shamelessselfpromo

    I loved Who’s Afraid? and am glad to see it on here. I do need to catch up on some of the others, though (and some of the Aurealis nominees… so many books, so little time!)

    Favourite Australian thing? Vanilla slice is pretty good, though so messy to eat. And I love our birdlife–they’re so colourful!

    I’m on Instagram as @earlgreyediting.

    OMGGG I AM FEATURED HERE?!?! THIS COMPLETELY MAKES MY DAY I MIGHT SHRIEK! *gives you cake* You are really very nice. :’)

    I adore The Book Thief *whispers* you so totally should read that someday. ;D And the movie is afdljakfsd beautiful and sad right? I saw the movie first #bookwormtaboo but I basically have no regrets because IT WAS SO GOOD. I also love Melina Marchetta! And some of my favourite Aussie authors are Steph Bowe and Melissa Keil. *nods*

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    I need to read more Aussie authors! So far I’ve only read Who’s Afraid by Maria Lewis so I need to keep up my Aussie pride and read ALL of them. I actually have a review of Who’s Afraid on my blog and it would mean sooooo much if you could check it out :)

    Aussie authors are the greatest, aren’t they??
    And you should TOTALLY read The Book Thief!! It was absolutely incredible. (I haven’t seen the movie yet, though).

    Thank you so much for the mention :)
