I see you’re avoiding your TBR…
Looking for another book to read instead?
I know many of you are in self-isolation/ social-distancing/ physical-distancing or whatever else you’re choosing to call it and there is either is too many on your bookshelf to read, or not enough.
Never fear! I’ve made a list of 5 books by Australian authors to support the locals, based on what you’re feeling at the time. Please let me know if you liked this and if it is something you’d like to see more of on here.
All these books are available on Kindle so you have no excuse to not be reading while in self-isolation 🙂
You’ll find my review for each of these novels below as well as a Kindle link to purchase them (notspon). If you do happen to pick up one of these novels and want to chat about it, send me a message on any of my socials.
Something feel-good and beautiful to lift your mood and change the word.
Euphoria Kids by Alison Evans
My Review / Kindle Link / Alison’s Instagram
Fantasy stand-alone. Ever seen one of those? I have and it’s brilliant! A murder mystery that keeps you guessing till the end, the killer is not who you’d expect.
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
My Review / Kindle Link / Astrid’s Instagram
An Arthurian Retelling but in space and queer and with a strong female lead and a well thought out love story and betrayal and they address the injustices of the original story. Need I say more?
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy*
My Review / Kindle Link / Amy’s Instagram & Cori’s Instagram
*I just found out that Amy and Cori are married and I am screaming right now because the two authors of my all-time favourite novel are married and it’s beautiful!!! Also, I may’ve pre-ordered the kindle copy of the sequel to this while writing this post. Oop.
YA thriller. It’s not scary, just makes you question your very existence and if what you think is real is actually real?
Oasis by Katya DeBecerra
My Review / Kindle Link / Katya’s Instagram
A rag-tag team of rookies on a space adventure. I may have a crush on one of them, and it’s not the ‘ladykiller’.
Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did when creating it! I originally made this list for someone who asked for book recs and well, I thought it’d be helpful for those of you looking for your next read.
Have fun reading and staying indoors. Look after yourselves and loved ones during this crazy time and most of all, try to stay social!
