We tagged ourselves in this tag because it sounds like so much fun. And Aussie pride mate. Thanks to Icebreaker694 for bringing this to our attention.
KOALA: A CHARACTER YOU WANT TO CUDDLE ALL DAY LONG.
Sue: Oberon from the Iron Druid books. He’s adorable!
Imogen: Rosemary Hathaway from Vampire Academy. She’s fabulous.
VEGEMITE: A BOOK THAT YOU LOVE BUT EVERYBODY ELSE HATES.
Sue: Actually I hate Vegemite – licking the road would taste better. So how about a book that I hate that everyone else loves? The Book Thief. I didn’t like the way the story was told. The narrator’s voice seemed forced. The ending was so bleeding obvious I think I groaned out loud.
Imogen: I’m with Sue for the whole Vegemite thing. I can’t stand Sabriel by Garth Nix.

Sue: The Wayfarer’s crew from A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet.
