Today’s topic I am super excited for!!! Not many books are set in Australia, so when I find them I hold on tight.
*also once again this post is super super late and i am super super sorry
Take Three Girls
Wow. It was set in Melbourne and I loved it and please read it. Most cities referenced would mean nothing to you but I recognized a lot and could put pieces together easily.
I Am Out With Lanterns
Never really read but I started it?? And it seems to be also set in Melbourne?? Which I adore??
The Secret Science Of Magic
This is ALSO set in Melbourne. YAY!!! (Also this book gave me so much grief over finding a spot for it on my shelf)
A Thousand Perfect Notes
As said by the author, this is set somewhere between Cairns and Brisbane? I think? It’s definitely set in Australia.
This book…. IS AMAZING. I’m pretty sure it’s also set in Melbourne? It mentions being 100% set in Australia, that much I know. (The theme of ‘being more beautiful after being broken’ is also SO GORGEOUS. It features a cinnamon roll named Gideon as well and he writes slam poems and I love him so much 💖 Highly recommend)
Words In Deep Blue, Cath Crowley (Melbourne author!)
A #LoveOzYA Anthology, written by tons of Australian authors like Amie Kaufman (co-writer of the Illuminae series) and Melissa Keil (wrote The Secret Science Of Magic – mentioned above – and others)
Aahhh thank you for this topic Shanah!!! It was super fun to think about and I hope I introduced a few Aussie books to y’all! If you’re ever looking for recommendations by Australian authors or books set here just let me know 😉
