LoveOzYA Recommendations for Australian Reading Hour

This Thursday, 19 September, is Australian Reading Hour, the day when all Australians, young and old, are encouraged to set aside an hour to enjoy a good book and celebrate the benefits of reading.

And what better way to spend Australian Reading Hour than by delving into some homegrown Aussie YA?

To help Australian readers find their perfect Oz YA read for the day, we asked you, the community, to vote for your favourite books. We were aiming for a top ten, but we tallied the votes and you gave us a top thirteen! (And who are we to argue with extra love for Oz YA?)

And what a list you gave us! From contemporary to fanatsy, sci-fi and #ownvoices, there are books to suit all reading tastes and interests.

We hope the list inspires you to spend an hour with an Aussie YA book on Thursday!
