Koala: A Character You Want to Cuddle All Day Long


Noah Czerny is my child. If you fight him, you fight me.

Vegemite: A Book You Love That Everyone Else Hates


Ooh, I don't know. None really come to mind, but I do love Shakespeare (some of my favorites are above ^-^), and I know many don't enjoy reading his works.

Socceroos: Favorite Fictional Squad


What other answer is there?

Southern Cross: Most Recent 5-Star Read


Karneval, Vol. 1 by Tōya Mikanagi. Karneval is an anime + manga about an international crime-fighting organization of superpower spies who fly around in futuristic blimps and wear Victorian outfits. I LOVED the anime, but it only covered a few of the manga and so left a lot of loose ends untied. I've started reading the manga in order to find out what happens next, and it's sO FREAKING GOOD. 

Patriotism: Favorite Book By an Author From Your Country


AHHHHH I CAN'T CHOOSE. So have my top two: Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick (nonfiction) and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg (children's mystery).

Echidna: A Book You Like to Look At, But it Physically Hurts to Read



Trick wasn't horrible. It was....fine. But the cookie-cutter heroine and dull storytelling don't live up to the gorgeousness of the cover.

Ned Kelly: A Book That is Really Grim but an Iconic Must Read



This book gets quite hard to read at parts, but I think that's for the best. The harder to read, the greater the impact. And with books like this, the harder to read, the better to understand.

Great Barrier Reef: A Book That Had You Gaping in Awe


This Book Destroyed My Life Last Year. Holy Shit.

I can not praise Merrick enough. It is one of the most shocking, beautiful, and haunting books I've read in my entire life. It's both real and surreal, dangerously seductive and poignantly realistic. It's mystery and morality and blood and smoke and night and death and life and sacrifice all in one. It's incredible.

Pavlova: A Light and Fluffy Book You Can't Help But Love


I rarely enjoy fluffy romances, but this one absolutely stole my heart. Jonah and Vaughn are SUCH unique, interesting, precious characters, and the entire story was super hilarious and heartwarming. Plus!! LGBT+ rep!! I'm all here for that, fam.

Milo: A Genre/Author You Reach For to Get You Out of a Reading Slump

  1. I might have read the abridged version or some smaller version (although it was still 200+ pages) of I am Malala but it is seriously one of my favorite books of all time.
